Why it Matters


Preventable Injuries
are the #1 Killer
of Kids in the U.S.

Every year, 8,000 families lose a child because of a preventable injury. When a child dies, the lives of families are changed forever.

It's a Global Epidemic.

A million families lose a child to a preventable injury every year around the world. Too many families don’t have access to the information and resources they need to keep their kids safe from tragedies such as drownings, car crashes, fires and falls.

Millions more children are injured every Year

In the United States nearly 5.6 million children are treated for injuries in emergency departments every year. These are often serious injuries that can affect them for a lifetime.

But This is a problem we can fix.

No parent should have to endure the loss of a child. Help us give all children the chance to grow up and become whatever they can imagine.
