PROJECT SLEEP SAFE
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) makes up about 80% of sudden and unexpected infant deaths (SUIDs).
SIDS also known as cot death or crib death, is the sudden unexplained death of a child less than one year of age. SIDS usually occurs during sleep.
Even after Back to Sleep efforts helped cut the SIDS rate by more than half from 1994 to today, it is still the leading cause of death among U.S. infants aged 1 month to 1 year, with 2,300 cases annually. The latest research into SIDS is giving parents clearer guidelines for protecting babies during sleep.
For the last 75 years, Finnish mothers have been given a box by the Finnish state; which includes all the necessities to help care for their newborn. Thanks to the box Finland enjoys the lowest infant mortality rate in the world.
WHAT WE DO
We provide Sleep Safe Boxes to low income, underprivileged families. We work with non-profit organizations that support homeless pregnant women and their babies facing difficult circumstances, giving them a future and a hope. We partner with organizations that meet an ever-growing need to provide shelter for pregnant women who are homeless.
