Mission: Kids In Danger is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting children by improving children’s product safety. Our mission is to promote the development of safer children’s products, advocate for children and educate the public, especially parents and caregivers, about dangerous children’s products. We were founded in 1998 by the parents of Danny Keysar who was killed in a dangerous portable crib.
Geographic areas served: national
Programs: To inform parents and care givers about potentially dangerous children's products that have already been recalled; to identify potentially dangerous products before they reach consumers; to convince manufacturers to design safer products;and to improve the effectiveness of the recall process.
Kids in Danger is an important organization that advocates for better safety in children's products as well as education surrounding this issue. I became involved with KID through the Board Fellows program at my school, and it has been a fantastic experience working with them this past year. I continue to be impressed with the level of passion exhibited by everyone involved in the organization, as well as their ability to do such great work on such a small budget. Saving children's lives through advocating for the manufacture and use of safer products is such an important and under-served need, and they are truly making an impact.
