Give Your Word campaign launched to help prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome

The Kohl’s Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention Campaign, The Children’s Hospital and The Kempe Center, have undertaken a plan to end Shaken Baby Syndrome, beginning right here in Colorado.  The Give Your Word campaign encourages individuals to  join the fight against Shaken Baby Syndrome by giving their word to never shake a baby. 

Become part of the solution.  Take a moment to take a stand against the most preventable form of child abuse.  Visit www.giveyourword.org.

Crying happens, so you need a plan.  All across Colorado, people have made their plans and given their word to never shake a baby.

Shaken Baby Syndrome is a leading cause of trauma death for kids under the age of 2 in Colorado.  It is estimated that more than 1,200 babies are treated for Shaken Baby Syndrome in the U.S. each year.
