    First Candle support grieving families and work to prevent SIDS and other sleep-related infant deaths by educating caregivers and supporting research.

    This charity is dear to my heart because they helped me through losing my daughter to SIDS.  When my perfectly healthy 1 month old daughter, Elizabeth Redd Lenhart, passed away, I did not know where to turn for help or answers.  A quick internet search led me to find their phone number and the immediate grief support that they offered was extremely helpful to me and my husband.  First Candle works to promote safe sleep for babies and fund SIDS research.  By supporting this charity, we are helping more babies survive and families to cope with the devastating loss of their babies.

    Please consider donating to this cause in memory of my daughter, who would have turned 11 years old this year on Aug 19. She is forever remembered in our hearts. It has been our mission to keep her memory alive through promoting SIDS awareness through First Candle. We held an event in her honor for five years after her death and raised about $75,000 for First Candle. We have been teaching in China for the past 3 years and are unable to hold the same event. This is a platform that would help us to continue our mission. Please consider voting for First Candle.  Elizabeth Redd Lenhart 08-19-08 / 09-21-08
