First Candle offers two easy ways
to donate this year!
As you reflect on the past year and prepare to celebrate with family and friends, we hope you will include First Candle in your holiday and end-of-year gift-giving.
This year marks First Candle’s 25th anniversary of saving babies and providing compassionate grief support to families. We count our blessings at the progress that has been made, but are faced with the reality that our work is far from done.
- SIDS remains the leading cause of death for babies one month to one year of age
- U.S. infant mortality rates rank only 43rd in the world
- Stillbirth claims the lives of more than 25,000 babies every year
- Many of the 4,500 SUID (sudden unexpected infant deaths) are caused by unsafe sleep practices and are preventable
WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS. Your gift will help make a difference!
