Donate $10 to Blind Zone Education before September 26 and Groupon Grassroots will add $20
Most of us love to score a good Groupon deal, and now there's a great reason to love Groupon even more: Make a donation to KidsAndCars.org through the Groupon website before Wednesday September 26, 2013, and for every $10 tax-deductible donation, KidsAndCars.org will receive an additional $20 from matching sponsors.
That means each $10 Groupon
purchased actually equals a $30 donation to KidsAndCars.org!!

Every year, thousands of children are hurt or die because a driver moving very slowly in reverse did not see them. The dollars raised by KidsAndCars.org will be used to provide safety professionals with BlindZone Education Kits that help drivers become aware of exactly how large and dangerous the blindzone behind their vehicle is and what they can do to eliminate this danger.
Want to contribute more than $10? You can select the number of $10 Groupons you'd like to "purchase" during your checkout. Each $10 Groupon "purchase" will be matched up to $5,000 by Bill and Adriann Nelson and up to $10,000 by the Gulbransen family; these two families have lost children of their own in tragic backover accidents, and have pledged these funds to help educate drivers about the dangerous blind spots behind large vehicles.
All donations made through this Groupon Grassroots campaign will be used by KidsAndCars.org to advocate for motor safety. For every $60 raised, KidsAndCars.org can provide one BlindZone Awareness Kit to a driver-education program, child-safety group, hospital, or other safety professional to educate the public about the BlindZones that present risks to small children.
Each BlindZone Awareness Kit includes a 28-inch collapsible safety cone to represent the average height of a 1- to 2-year-old, as well as a 50-foot tape measure, safety vest, three-ring binder with safety information, the Consumer Reports blindzone measurements chart, and KidsAndCars.org education materials. Safety instructors can use these kits to perform hands-on demonstrations of the amount of space drivers cannot see behind their own cars.
