Safe Kids Worldwide

safeKids

Did you know preventable injuries are the number one killer of kids in the United States? To reinforce our dedication to child safety, UPPAbaby joins forces with Safe Kids Worldwide, a non-profit organization devoted to keeping kids safe from preventable injuries. Their efforts reach far to 600 communities nationally and an additional 27 countries to prevent unnecessary injuries. Since 1988, Safe Kids has helped to decrease the death rate by 55%.

UPPAbaby proudly partners with Safe Kids Worldwide for Safe Kids Day in LA and NY. We are celebrating Safe Kids Day to raise awareness and resources to keep kids safe from preventable childhood injuries and deaths due to car crashes, drowning, fires, falls and more. One million children die each year from preventable injuries and millions more are injured in ways that can affect them for a lifetime. However, these are preventable so there are little things parents can do so kids can grow up safe and thrive.

We’re thrilled to support this important national effort, alongside celebrity heroes Drew Barrymore, Mark Wahlberg, Pete Sampras and more, to raise awareness and funds to keep all kids safe! You can join us in the effort to make every kid a SAFE kid. For more information on Safe Kids, visit http://www.safekids.org/.
