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.

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.
