Pictures of children crying in the streets of Haiti haunt television screens. Reports of a death toll over 100,000 leave many feeling helpless. Kolcraft, a Chicago based baby gear company, decided to roll up its company sleeves and reach out to Haitian children in need.

Kolcraft, a long-time partner with Kids in Distressed Situations (KIDS), is holding a Facebook silent auction with $1,000.00 worth of products. These products ranging from the Contours Classique 3 in 1 bassinet to the Contours Options Tandem will be auctioned off on Facebook to the highest bidder. Bids will be cast through comments on Kolcraft’s Facebook Fan page. Proceeds for the products will go to Kids in Distressed Situations (KIDS) relief fund for Haitian children.

"At Kolcraft we believe that every child matters. Our involvement with KIDS is a dynamic partnership where we help each other make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged children and families. Our desire is to give back to the community and give children hope for a better tomorrow." - Thomas Koltun, President of Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc

The silent auction will run from Friday, January 15th through Tuesday, January 19th at 4 p.m. CST. For more information please visit http://www.Facebook.com/Kolcraft
