During this 2006 Summer Season, 26 children died from hyperthermia after being left alone or were unable to get out of a hot car. In the summer of 2005, 42 children died in hot cars. We are making progress,the word is getting out, people are listening. 25 is less than 42, but we can and must do better. Zero is the perfect number.
Forget Me Not USA is on a mission is to provide a visual reminder about the safe transportation of children. By encouraging parents, grandparents, daycare providers, school bus drivers, etc. to display Forget Me Not Auto Safety Stickers, we want to visually remind them to never leave a child alone in a car, for any reason." Forget Me Not Auto Safety Stickers on transportation vehicles, as well as on all entry and exit doors of businesses such as convenience stores, cleaners and banks, will help raise public awareness.
Please join the Forget Me Not USA to prevent this tragedy from happening to children and their families.
