“We are committed to raising awareness regarding how dangerous a car can become for a child left alone in a vehicle for even a few short minutes,” said Mike Robinson, GM vice president of Sustainability and Global Regulatory Affairs and a member of the GM Foundation board of directors. “Passenger safety is a priority for our company and we’re proud to partner with Safe Kids to help save lives and prevent injuries.”

The GM Foundation’s donation to Safe Kids also includes raising awareness for “National Heatstroke Awareness Day” on July 31.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an average of 37 children per year have lost their lives due to heatstroke since 1998.
