Since 2003, All Baby & Child Corporation (ABC) and its ABC Kids Expo exhibitor partners have contributed millions of dollars in funding and in-kind product donations to charities that work for the health and welfare of children.
As a long-time supporter of First Candle, All Baby & Child Corporation has donated exhibit space at all of its shows and conferences, offered the expertise of its senior leadership and board members, and provided generous financial support to First Candle’s programs and services.
In recognition of its support, commitment and partnership within the philanthropic community, All Baby & Child Corporation was named the 2010 First Candle Honoree.
All Baby & Child Corporation also generously supports Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.) and encourages the donation of in-kind products from its exhibitors for distribution to those less fortunate. Some K.I.D.S. programs that ABC has supported include: grants and product donations through military base distributions to help armed forces families; Hurricane relief; and general programs to provide for needy children.
All Baby & Child Corporation is a supporter of Cribs For Kids. Since 1998, through safe sleep education and the donation of thousands of portable cribs, Cribs for Kids® has been making an impact on the rates of babies dying of accidental deaths due to unsafe sleeping environments by educating parents on the importance of safe sleep practices and by providing cribs to families who cannot otherwise afford a safe place for their babies to sleep.
All Baby & Child Corporation also contributed to Feed the Children for both tsunami and hurricane relief, and the American Red Cross and United Jewish Communities for additional hurricane relief efforts.
