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.
