A Call to Action
We’ve all heard the horror stories about children (and pets) being injured or even killed by being left in a hot vehicle. Sometimes, a child accidentally locks herself in a car while playing unattended. Sometimes, a distracted adult inadvertently leaves a child in a car. Still other times, a caregiver actively chooses to leave the child in a car. Whatever the reason, though, these injuries and deaths are completely preventable.
It breaks my heart to hear these stories so, I’ve decided to do something about it. I created this website to serve as a resource to help combat this problem by:
increasing the overall awareness of the issue
providing information on the dangers of leaving children unattended vehicles
providing ways that we all can help to avoid these tragedies
With the world on a virtual lock down, these stories are only bound to increase. Caregivers who must run necessary errands with children-in-tow are faced with the choice of leaving children at home, leaving them in the car while they shop or take them into a store - possibly exposing them to the Corona Virus. Sadly, with these being the only choices available to some, caregivers may choose to leave the kids in the car.
I urge you to share this site on your social media platforms and encourage your friends to do the same. We CAN make a difference if we work together to raise awareness and get the information to as many people as possible.
