Do you want to help raise money for KID at your school? Tyler’s Teddies is a fundraiser that was started by teacher Michele Witte after her son, Tyler, died after being entrapped by a faulty drop-side crib.
This is a perfect fundraising activity for a school classroom, club, or community to organize. If you’re interested in organizing your own Tyler’s Teddies fundraiser to benefit KID at your school, click here for more information and contact us to get started.
