The Issue: Infant Sleep-Related Deaths

According to a 2008 report by the Tennessee Department of Health, infant sleep-related deaths are the leading cause of accidental death in children aged 1 and younger. When families cannot afford a crib for their infant, they're often forced to practice co-bedding, which increases the possibility of sleep-related accidents.

The Campaign: Help Provide Portable Cribs

If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, then Nurses for Newborns of Tennessee can provide a Pack ‘n’ Play portable crib for four families. Each additional $75 raised will be used to purchase a portable crib for another family in need.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

Nurses for Newborns

Nurses for Newborns supports families most at-risk for infant mortality by performing in-home nursing visits that include assessments of the infant's sleeping environment and education about safe sleep practices and positive parenting skills. The organization's representatives conduct visits with teenage moms and mothers with disabilities, families who are experiencing poverty, and those whose babies are born with medical problems. In addition to providing necessary medical care and teaching parents useful skills, they also provide donated materials such as diapers, clothing, food, cribs, and bedding.
