KID Mobile Gives Parents Peace of Mind

We’re proud to announce the new mobile site for our nonprofit partner, Kids In Danger (KID) an organization dedicated to improving children’s product safety. KID was founded in 1998 by the parents of sixteen-month-old Danny Keysar, who died when a portable crib collapsed around his neck. Though the crib had been recalled, many people weren’t aware and it and similar recalled products were still widely used.

To help put an end to tragedies like this, KID wanted to give parents an easy way to search the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) database of recalled products. We advised building a mobile website, and we joined forces with WeMakeItSafer to employ their Recalled Product Search application.

Now, with a fully functional site that’s accessible across all mobile devices, parents can quickly and easily search for recalled items wherever they are, whether it be a store, garage sale, or friend’s basement, and make informed decisions before acquiring new products for their kids.

At their recent annual Best Friend Awards presentation, KID highlighted this mobile site as one of their biggest triumphs of the year. “Working with Table XI put life saving tools in the hands of parents and caregivers,” said KID Executive Director Nancy Cowles. “They were able to take KID’s vision of the kinds of tools we wanted and add their own creative and technical skills to put out a valuable mobile site.”
