Kids are 1st is a non-profit 501(c) organization working hard everyday to help save lives through our community safety day events, educational workshops and seminars. We address how to change distracted driving behaviors, are certified child passenger safety seat technicians and address all potentially dangerous safety situations including drowning, leaving kids in cars and motor vehicle safety.
Did you know that car crashes are the #1 source of injury and death to our children and teens? Car crashes kill more of our children than any of the major diseases.
We are on the front line to save lives every time we initiate or participate in a safety event which features a child passenger seat check up event, and other potentally life saving services and information. Kids Are 1st will use donations to continue our life saving programs, the funding will make it possible for us to hand out more child safety seats to those who cannot afford one and are putting their children in harm's way everytime they are traveling in a motor vehicle and are unprotected by not being properly restrained in a child safety seat.
Texting and other driving distractions have become a major cause of motor vehicle crashes. With proper funding we will be able to demonstrate using computers how to avoid and change bad driving behaviors.
The photo below is an actual crash which was the result of texting while driving. When you answer or send a text at 55 MPH your eyes are off the road the length of a football field which is 100 yards or 300 feet!!!
Lattes and make up. Yes, it is true.
You can help by donating to Kids Are 1st. All donations are tax deductible, a 501 (c) (3) non profit tax letter will be issued for your donation. It is urgent that we all work together to educate and provide services to save lives. Too many children, teens and adults are being injured and killed. We must lower these alarming statistics. Each donation will help provide a child passenger safety seat to a family in need or help pay for a safety event where scores of car seats can be checked and installed properly. Nine of ten children are not restrained safely while passengers and are at risk. Your donations will provide education to teen drivers about how deadly distractions are while driving and other safety issues that endanger all of us everyday.
