We exist to end SIDS

We imagine a world where no parent has to suffer the loss or fear of SIDS ever again. And we believe we can get there. With enough heart and research, we can abolish SIDS. Relentless hope is our stance. Scientific breakthroughs are our weapons. Join us in this fight.

Give $20, get $20 worth of food + Grubhub delivery on us

$10,000
Nothing says love like a good meal, especially when it’s helping a good cause. This month, Cribs for Kids and the Aaron Matthew SIDS Research Guild at Seattle Children’s Hospital are partnering to turn every $20 donation into a code for $20 worth of food, plus free delivery, from Grubhub. Every $20 donation gets a $20 code—donate as many times as you like!

Our unique data-driven approach

Breakthroughs often start as data. In partnership with Seattle Children’s Research Institute, we’re building the first-ever cloud-based whole-genome database that researchers worldwide can use to find genes or mutations that could help explain some instances of sudden infant or child death. Built with support from Microsoft Genomics, TATA Consulting Services, and researchers worldwide, the database offers open access with the latest privacy protections.

A strong voice on Capitol Hill

We advocate strongly and consistently on behalf of SIDS-related issues in state and federal legislative bodies. For example, the recently passed Scarlett Sunshine Act (H.R. 2271 | S. 1130) will strengthen current efforts to understand sudden and unexpected death in infants and children, facilitate data collection and analysis to improve prevention, and support children and families.

Compassionate, empathetic support for parents

No parent should ever have to experience the pain of losing a child to SIDS. And every parent should be informed about the specific actions they can take to reduce the risk. We provide resources and access to people who can help parents prevent SIDS and provide comfort and counseling to those families affected.

Our research partners

From physicians and professors to world-class researchers, scientists, and data scientists, our research partners make the breakthroughs that fuel hope and move our cause forward.
