Mission Statement:

KID is a non profit organization founded by parents that aims to protect children from injury and death due to unsafe products

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

KID’s mission is to promote the development of safer products, advocate for children and educate the public, especially parents and caregivers, about dangerous children’s products.

Program History:

Kids In Danger (KID) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting children by improving children’s product safety. KID was founded in 1998 by the parents of sixteen-month-old Danny Keysar who died when a portable crib collapsed around his neck in his Chicago childcare home. Although the portable crib had been recalled five years earlier, word of its danger had not reached Danny’s parents, caregiver, or a state inspector who visited the home just eight days before Danny’s death.

To date, 19 children have died in cribs of similar faulty design. And portable cribs are just one of the myriad children’s products that may prove to be dangerous.
