2016 saw a spike in hot car related deaths, with 39 precious children lost. Although we would have liked to go into the holidays with a more upbeat blog post, we felt this was important and necessary. It is our hope that we can continue to bring awareness to this issue in 2017, until every parent is taking the proper precautions to prevent these tragic deaths. #NoMoreHeatStroke #LookBeforeYouLock #HotCarDeaths
The number of infant deaths from Forgotten Baby Syndrome saw a spike in 2016 that is higher than the yearly average. Other sad statistics to contemplate.

That sure is right. You "might" sleep in, when they're grown and independent.

Does it worry you to see how much time your teen spends on his or her smartphone? Here are some tips on how to limit phone time without too much rebellious backlash. #parentingtips

Teachers need to be creative, and this 3rd-grade teacher nailed it!
As if LEGOs weren't enough of an awesome childhood toy, one teacher has found another awesome educational/developmental use for this super-toy – as a math education aid! Alycia Zimmerman, a 3rd-grade teacher in New York, uses them to explain fractions, squares and other mathematical concepts.

Should moms be waking up at 4:30 to prepare gourmet lunches for their kids? Is it healthy for mom or child? #HealthyLunchBox
I took my soggy PB & J to school in a rusty Dukes of Hazzard lunchbox that never held a gummy vitamin, organic ingredient or fresh berry. But my daughter?

Story
Tagline
Making a difference. One child at a time.
Introduction
Every child deserves a good education, the path to success in life

Period.

We at Kars for Kids live by that mantra. No child deserves to start life off on the wrong foot, without a solid education.

Kars for Kids is a national 501 (c) 3 car donation charity that uses the proceeds from donated vehicles to promote education for Jewish children. Vehicle donation is an excellent way to turn junk into smiles and to help promote healthy environmental values at the same time.

Kars for Kids uses a variety of different tools to achieve that goal, from after school mentoring, to holiday care packages, from summer camp, to subsidizing tuition bills, Kars for Kids utilizes many paths to help every child shine.
