GOOD SPORTS

Good Sports is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create opportunities for youth to lead healthy active lifestyles through sports.

To accomplish this, Good Sports partners with sporting goods manufacturers to donate new sports equipment to community groups in need. The organization strongly believes that sports are a key to the healthy development of young people with both physical and social benefits.

With the current economic reality, children are being offered fewer athletic options, participation fees are being increased, and players are expected to provide their own equipment and uniforms. Couple that with a childhood obesity epidemic that is also hitting disadvantaged areas at a higher rate and we have a very real issue—an issue Good Sports is working to alleviate head on by making sure opportunities will always exist and getting the youth off the couch, off the street and in the game. Let’s work together to stop this harmful trend and help this worthy cause!

UPPAbaby is proud to sponsor Good Sports and acknowledges their commitment to a healthy and active youth lifestyle. If you too wish to contribute, please visit, http://www.goodsports.org/donate.shtml.

SAFE KIDS WORLDWIDE

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/.

National Multiple Sclerosis Society

NationalMS_logo

A staggering 400,000 Americans live with MS.  This debilitating autoimmune disease affects the brain and spinal cord, resulting in loss of muscle control, vision, balance, and sensations. In recognition of National Multiple Sclerosis Month we are donating to the National MS Society. Our monetary contribution will help people affected by MS through education, support, advocacy and research.

To support on a local level we are participating in several events by providing time, staffing and product donations. On March 1st we participated in the Climb To The Top fundraising event put on by the National MS Society – Greater New England Chapter.  As the official water stop sponsor, we were on hand with a team of UPPAbaby employees to distribute water bottles to all the thirsty climbers. These dedicated walkers climbed over 1,200 steps and 61 floors!

Look for similar events in your community and get involved to help raise money and awareness in the fight against MS by visiting http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Chapters.
