My awesome project is a student-led nonprofit organization aimed at reducing SIDS. Every year 3,500 infants die from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). About a quarter of those is from suffocation and strangulation related to improper sleeping environments. Having a proper baby bed is the very first step in raising a child. It is essential that infants under the age of 12 months sleep by themselves in a crib/ bassinet.The goal of Cradle Me Care is to provide safe and comfortable sleeping situation for families who are financially struggling to provide for their newborn.
Cradle Me Care will use the money to buy baby bassinets, clothing, and informational resources for families struggling to provide for their infant. We want to make sure that as many babies as possible have the basic necessities to survive early childhood.
