crowdSPRING Community Gives Back – Kids In Danger Ross Kimbarovsky | March 27th, 2011
Give Back is the crowdSPRING community’s way of helping worthy non-profit and charity causes in need. Creatives in the crowdSPRING community have agreed that for these special projects, no monetary awards will be given. crowdSPRING will waive all fees and will assist the organizations with posting their project. We will collaborate together to help those less fortunate. You can read more about the origins of Give Back here.
We’re thrilled that the crowdSPRING community’s next Give Back project is for Kids In Danger (KID).
Kids In Danger is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting children by improving children’s product safety.
The organization was founded in 1998 by University of Chicago professors Linda Ginzel and Boaz Keysar following the death of their son Danny in an unsafe portable crib.
KIDS’s mission is to promote development of safer children’s products, advocate for children, and educate the public (especially parents) about dangerous children’s products.
You might wonder why KID’s mission is important.
Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death among children.
An estimated 66,400 children under age 5 were rushed to U.S. hostpital emergency rooms in 2006 for injuries associated with nursery products.
An average 81 children under age 5 die annually in incidents associated with nursery products.
In calendar year 2007, the U.S. Consumer Product safety commission recalled children’s products, including nuersey items, toys and clothing, at a rate of almost 4 per week. This accounts for over 46 million recalled units.
KID has received numerous awards and recognitions, including the 2010 Civil Justice Foundation Community Champion Award and a Presidential Service Award given by former President Bill Clinton.
Our entire community is honored to be helping Kids In Danger. You can view their New logo for Kids in Danger – a dynamic growing nonprofit project. They’re looking for a new, more professional logo to help promote their mission and the organization.
Please consider helping this worthy cause. You can help directly by participating in their logo design project, or you can help by telling others about this project and/or about Kids In Danger (you can follow the organization on Twitter or visit them on Facebook).
As in all our projects, participation in Give Back projects is voluntary. Give Back projects work like regular projects, including contracts, wrap-up, notifications, etc. To help the learning process along in these projects, we encourage creatives to collaborate and to provide constructive feedback to each other.
We’re fortunate to have an amazing community of creatives – 88,000 of them, from 200 countries. They speak hundreds of languages, cover all age groups, demographics, experience and religions. They’ve created logo designs, web designs, and custom graphic designs for companies in virtually every country of the world and in most languages spoken on the planet.
We encourage everyone to find ways to help worthy causes and others who are less fortunate. Thank you – from our entire community!
