Share the Smitten love
We partner with amazing organizations like 90 by 30 to distribute donated Smittens in our communities. Not only do these organizations connect families with tools, like Smitten, but they also work to build a strong, supportive community around young families. Safe sleep is only one (important) piece of keeping babies healthy.
90by30's mission is lower the rates of child abuse 90% by 2030 in Lane County, OR. Pip & Grow has partnered with 90by30 to establish the Welcome Baby Box as the cornerstone of their child abuse prevention effort. Beginning in 2017, every infant in the target regions will receive a Smitten stocked with essentials for babies and parents.
In 2013, almost 3,500 infants died suddenly and unexpectedly in the US. The vast majority of those deaths were caused by SIDS or suffocation. That's the equivalent of 7 empty elementary schools or 140 empty classrooms.
Researchers are still working to understand what causes SIDS, but this much is clear: a safe sleep space is critical for protecting infant health. That's why we've made a commitment to get Smittens in the hands of families who need them. You can help with this effort by choosing the "buy one, give one" option in the Smitten shop or by donating Smittens using the donate button.
Safe Sleep. Everywhere.
Pip & Grow partners with local and national community organizations to provide Smitten Sleep Systems for families in need. We believe that every new family deserves a safe and beautiful sleep space for their littlest addition. Help us provide Smittens to all families, regardless of their ability to pay.
