MILLERSVILLE, Md., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Travel Advantage Network (TAN), a nationwide leader in wholesale vacation accommodations, has reached out to The MISS Foundation in support of families who have lost a child from any cause such as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) or a congenital heart defect. The MISS Foundation is an international, non-profit organization which provides immediate and ongoing support to grieving families, empowerment through community volunteerism opportunities, public policy and legislative education, and programs to reduce infant and toddler death through research and education. TAN held raffles and received contributions from company employees, raising $750, despite difficult economic times.

"I couldn't be more proud of our TAN family and how month after month they reach out to support causes such as The MISS Foundation," said TAN President Brad Callahan. "Each month one of TAN's employees chooses a charity and leads employee efforts to raise money, donate time and participate in events in support of worthy causes."

TAN's efforts to support The MISS Foundation were led by employee Teresa Jeffrey. "Since I've had my daughter, The MISS Foundation has become dear to my heart," said Jeffrey. "It is important for people to understand how they can become involved and build awareness for causes of death among children, as well as how they can support research to prevent it."

In addition to TAN's support of The MISS Foundation, in 2008 TAN employees have raised and donated thousands of dollars to help in the fight against juvenile alopecia areata, muscular dystrophy, congenital heart defects, autism, arthritis and child hunger.
