The Foundation

The Molly Ann Gries Foundation was born out of a feeling of necessity to share our story and truths about safe sleep practices to help other families avoid the same nightmare we have been living. 

Our mission is to spread awareness about safe sleep practices through education and resource distribution.

Our newest venture is with Akron Children's Hospitals. Starting at the beginning of 2018, every baby that visits one of the hospital's 29 pediatric offices for their initial well check, will receive a copy of 'Sleep Baby, Safe and  Snug' (a board book about safe sleep) and a card of questions to ask potential child care providers with questions specific to safe sleep, thanks to the generous support of the Molly Ann Gries Foundation.  We will also be supplying Snuza movement monitors and SafeSleep BreathTHRU crib mattresses to families with at risk infants. We can't help but wonder if our life would be different today, if Molly had been using these valuable tools. We encourage you to check out their websites from our Resources tab.
