SIDS and Kids has saved an estimated 7990 Australian babies' lives since 1988, through research and key education programs on safe sleeping aimed at new and expectant parents, and health professionals. They also provide bereavement services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to the 3500 Australian families impacted by SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), stillbirth & neonatal death each year.
These essential services would not be possible without the generous support of the community. In fact, since its inception, SIDS and Kids has raised over $16 million to contribute to research and education programs.
How can you get involved?
Australians are encouraged to get involved by purchasing a Red Nose or other Red Nose Day product (such as a new jewellery range and plush toy collection) or making a donation. Products are available from $3 each.
Red Nose Day products will be available throughout June from leading retailers: Target, Big W, Terry White Chemists, Pharmacist Advice, Soul Pattinson Chemist, Spotlight, News Extra, Nextra, NewsXpress and Clark Rubber.
So don't forget your Red Nose on Friday 26th June!
