Car seats have complicated instructions, and often need a trained technician to educate parents on how to properly install their children into car seats. The goal of our company is to raise money in order to sponsor car seat events, train and educate parents in safe car seat installation, and to give away car seats to those who may have a need. Your financial commitment and involvement will contribute to our mission, please feel free to make a donation that will help us purchase car seats for needy families. No amount of a donation is too small to save a life and remember...all donations are tax deductible.
