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!
