Announcing the First Steps for SIDS Contest


The American SIDS Institute has partnered with Aaron Matthew SIDS Research Guild to host an online video campaign, First Steps for SIDS. The campaign will raise public awareness and funds to support crucial research into sudden infant death.

Parents and grandparents are encouraged to submit videos of their child’s first steps. Then people will vote on their favorite video with a minimum $5 donation. Detailed instructions are on the website.

Prizes include a trip for 4 to Disneyland (along with hotel and air). Other prizes are detailed on the website.

We are deeply thankful to our sponsors: Marriott, Alaska Airlines, Tata. WE Communications, Microsoft Surface, Microsoft Xbox and kind individual donors.

So please enter the contest today at and tell all your friends and family to enter. Help us make this go viral and become a huge success. Every dollar raised will be spent on research.

We believe that all babies should live to take their first steps.
