Tyler’s Teddies

Do you want to help raise money for KID at your school? Tyler’s Teddies is a fundraiser that was started by middle school teacher Michele Witte after her son, Tyler, died when he was 10 months old after being entrapped by a faulty drop-side crib. His story has people all over America paying it forward by raising awareness and supporting laws that keep kids safe! Those who purchase a teddy are encouraged to either keep it and promise to share kindness or give it to a family member or friend and ask them to do a random act of kindness in return, and the proceeds go to KID.

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.
