One of the ways an individual or an organisation can support SIDS and Kids is through payroll giving.
These donations are made from pre-tax income with some employers agreeing to match the donations made making the support for SIDS and Kids all the more effective.
SIDS and Kids provides bereavement support to families who have experienced the death of a baby or child during pregnancy, birth, infancy and childhood. Sadly, each year in Australia an average of 3,500 babies and children die suddenly and unexpectedly in the perinatal period (stillbirth to the first month of life), from Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) including SIDS or accidental death. Over a third of all perinatal deaths and all SUDIs still have no known cause.
Together with your help we can continue to provide valuable support to these families, fund vital research in sudden infant death and stillbirth and continue our public awareness campaign ‘SIDS and Kids Safe Sleeping’ to help further reduce fatal sleeping accidents and SIDS.
Your support will save more babies’ lives and make a real difference in the community.
