Abram's Nation: The Safety Sleeper™: Financial Help

Financial Help

Joey has slept soundly ever since he received this wonderful gift. I call it a gift because Joey's Safety Sleeper™ was purchased through a great charity in Louisville, KY, called Kosairs Charities. Without the generosity of these great people, Joey would never have gotten his sleeper.
