Halo Innovations, the maker of the best selling Halo® SleepSack™ wearable blanket, announced today a new partnership with Safe Kids USA. Halo will be recognized as a Gold Level Member of the Safe Kids USA’s 2010 Business Champions Program.
“As a company whose mission is to help babies sleep safely, we wanted to support an organization that works everyday to keep kids safe,” says Halo’s founder, Bill Schmid. “We are always seeking new ways to communicate safe sleep practices to parents and becoming a member of Safe Kids USA’s Business Champions Program will give us the opportunity to reach their network of coalitions throughout the country.”
Bill Schmid founded Halo in 1994 after spending three years researching safe sleep environments when he lost his infant daughter to SIDS in 1991. Halo is dedicated to developing products that set new standards for the safety and improved health of sleeping infants and to bring peace of mind to parents and caregivers.
“We are excited to welcome Halo as our newest Business Champion,” says Mitch Stoller, president and CEO of Safe Kids Worldwide. “It’s because of their generous support that we are able to continue our work educating parents and caregivers in communities across the country on ways to keep the sleeping environments of their children safe.”
