WOONSOCKET, R.I., Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer Infant and GOOD+ FoundationTM have combined forces for the 2016 Sharing Is Caring Social Charity Drive. This campaign will provide low-income families with comforting babycare items such as pacifiers, swaddles and other baby essentials in an effort to maintain the health and safety of their children.
"1 in 4 infants and toddlers in America live in households where income is below the poverty line and have parents who struggle to provide them with even the basic comforts most babies enjoy," said Mark Mesner, CEO of Summer Infant, Inc. "Through the kindness of our fans and friends, and with the help of the GOOD+ Foundation, we can help provide a little solace for these families during the upcoming Holiday season."
From November 14, 2016 through January 1, 2017, for every 5 new followers to the Summer Infant, Born Free or SwaddleMe Facebook or Instagram channels, Summer Infant will donate a nursery item, Born Free Bliss Pacifier and a SwaddleMe Original Swaddle to a child in need.
