I was a volunteer for 2 years at KID and they do great work. Before volunteering, I had no idea how big the issue of child product safety. In addition, how unknown the issue is. It is an issue that affects every child, parent, and family. KID does great work in getting families the information they need to make sure the products that they are using for their family are safe. As well as, advocating for laws that will make products safer in the first place.

Although KID is a relatively small group, their work to promote awareness for product safety is extremely impressive. KID's dedication to raising awareness for recalled children's products helps promote safety in schools, childcare centers, and homes. A genuinely impressive nonprofit!

Kids in Danger has educated me on the topic of product safety. Interning at this organization has changed my perspective of the products used by many families on a daily basis. It has educated me on issues such as furniture tip-overs and has encouraged me to share this information with family and friends. Kids in Danger gives a voice to families who have experienced a tragedy and does preventative work to ensure that future incidents do not occur. I greatly value their advocacy efforts.

I used to work as a volunteer and I truly appreciate the work they do. I think that the aim they are fully focused on is amazing.. Child proofing is the first step, but as a parent we need to know more for our kids safety..As a mom to be former volunteer, I have learned a lot. Every parent and grandparent has to follow their hard work..

As a former intern and current volunteer, I truly enjoyed working with Nancy Cowles and the team in order to create safer regulations for children's products. Being a part of this non-profit has helped me become more self-sufficient as well as a team-player. I have learned what it takes to complete projects in a timely, yet successful fashion. I do recommend any student who needs an internship or volunteer placement to give this organization a call!

As an intern at KID, it's been incredible to see the dedication that each member of the team brings to the table. KID is full of people who truly want to make the world a safer place for kids. Whether it be sharing recall information and safety advice through social media and workshops, or doing more hands-on projects, like testing products for safety, the team at KID works hard to ensure the safety of children, especially where they should feel safest: in their own home.

I have been interning at KID this summer, and I am really impressed by the work and impact of the organization. KID's efforts to ensure child product safety have brought light to an important issue in our consumer driven society and have also become the voice for many. The staff is constantly busy organizing events, reaching out to people through social media, and contacting various companies and policy-makers to further KID's mission. I am excited to continue interning at KID for the rest of the summer as I learn more about the non-profit world!

As an intern at KID, I've found the staff and office camaraderie to be super welcoming. Being able to work on various projects for KID showed me how dedicated the nonprofit is to advocating for the development of safer children's products, and to interacting with legislation and legislators on that front. All social media is constantly updated for recalls (such as the IKEA recall), and prevention material is always being put out there to educate the public. I would highly urge others to support KID--it's a wonderful organization with a highly important mission.

KIDS in Danger presented to our families last night and we would love for Laura Nikolovska, our presenter, to come back again! The safety of our children is of the utmost importance and this organization is very dedicated to educating the public about the safety of children's products. We also received valuable resources than reinforce child safety.

Kids In Danger is a valuable organization particularly in safekeeping helpless and innocent children and their caretakers in the prevention of harmful and/or disastrous products. Prevention and warnings are the key and Kids In Danger strives to achieve this ultimate goal. I fully support this charitable asset.

Kids In Danger's mission is to inform consumers about dangerous products and practices that can injure or even kill a child. their outreach is small but mighty. i am proud to be a donor as they keep the public informed about recalled products, safe practices for sleep, play and travel, and are a voice in Washington for safe products.

My oldest daughter was in the same daycare and had, at one time, slept in the same portable crib that was responsible for Danny's death. She is alive today and is a beautiful 17 year old with amazing dreams, we are the lucky ones. I was asked to join the board shortly after KID was founded. Being a member of this organization is truly an honor. The passion that surrounds this group is contagious and everyone who hears about the organization, attends an event or meets its founders are truly amazed and moved by it's mission. KID will always be a part of our family and we will continue to support the organization and its cause for many years.

I had the chance to intern with KID this summer and so far, I can say I've learned so much about the nonprofit world and what it takes to sustain an organization. Even though the organization's staff size is small, they are doing incredibly big things and doing many important things to keep children safe. Everyone involved with this organization is involved because they deeply care about the cause! I believe Kids In Danger can change the way the general consumer public looks at children's product safety and I wish them only the best in the future.

I started working with KID (Kids In Danger) this past April (2015). I absolutely love it! The ladies (Nancy, Laura & Karen) are so awesome. They are not only well versed in their respective areas of the organization, but they genuinely enjoy what they do and believe in the message KID embodies. I really love the energy of the office and how everyone is there to help, encourage and guide. I truly appreciate all of the kindness and appreciation the ladies have shown me. They make me feel that I am just as much as a vital team member (not just a volunteer) as anyone else, which further fuels my desire to be more involved. Because of KID, the work they do and the ladies, I have decided to get into nonprofit as a career!

Thanks for all that you do!!
