About the Campaign

At Safe Kids Worldwide, protecting kids is both our mission and an urgent call to action. Preventable injuries are the #1 killer of kids in the United States and almost every one of these tragedies is preventable.

Safe Kids works in communities across the U.S. and in more than 30 countries globally to reduce traffic injuries, drownings, falls, burns, poisonings and more.

Safe Kids Day is an annual fundraising campaign to support the life-saving programs of Safe Kids Worldwide and our local coalition partners. We need your help now more than ever. Please give generously and help protect kids on the road, at home, and at play.
