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!

I am really impressed by KID's TEST program that gives young engineers at top universities contemporary design challenges that affect children's products and their safety.

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.

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.
