Thanks to our incredibly kind supporters, we hit our initial Big Give Christmas Challenge target of £70,088 in just 5 days! This will provide 400 vulnerable families, living in temporary accommodation or crisis situations, with essential safer sleep items for their baby.
The campaign is now closed and donations can no longer be doubled.
Thank you for helping to ensure that every baby has access to safer sleep, no matter their circumstances.
For families living in emergency situations or temporary accommodation, it can be incredibly difficult to create a safer sleep space for their babies, whether that’s because of where they’re living or because they can’t afford to buy essential items. Families living in deprivation are 23% more at risk of infant deaths.
We don’t know the causes of SIDS but we know there are ways to reduce the risk, which is why it’s so important that families have access to life-saving advice and resources. Our new Bedtime Bundles project will provide families in emergency accommodation or temporary housing with a bundle containing a travel cot, baby sleeping bag, thermometer and advice leaflets.
A gift of £30 could pay for one bundle of essential safer sleep items for a family in crisis or temporary accommodation.
This Christmas you can help give some of the most vulnerable babies the chance for a safe and happy future, wherever their home is.
