Giving Tuesday

As a parent or caregiver there is nothing more precious than the safety and well-being of our children. Let’s come together as a community to prioritize child car seat safety. BHK’s Giving Tuesday cause is simple but profound: fundraising to purchase child car seats/booster seats to protect the little ones.

Buckle UP Copper Country to Protect Little Lives – Your Support Needed!

Dear Community Members,

As parents, guardians, and caring individuals, we all share a common bond – a deep and unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of our children. It is a responsibility that transcends all other considerations, and it is something we can all unite behind.

Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13. A properly installed and correctly used child car seat significantly reduces the risk of injury and death.

BHK’s Giving Tuesday cause is both simple and profoundly impactful: we are raising funds to provide child car seats and booster seats for Copper Country families in need. These sets are not just a convenience but a crucial line of defense, protecting our children during every ride.

But our mission does not stop at providing these essential seats. With your help, our certified car seat technicians will educate families on the proper installation and use of these seats, ensuring that each child is as safe as possible during their travels.

Knowing a child is securely fastened in a car seat or booster designed for their age, weight, and height can provide invaluable peace of mind.

Donate today and be a driving force behind this life-saving mission. Every contribution, no matter how big or small, will champion equitable access to car seats and protect children from harm.

Let us come together as a community to prioritize child car seat safety. It is a small act that can make a world of difference. Our children deserve nothing less.

With deepest gratitude and warm regards,

Cheryl Mills
Executive Director
