About Us…

River’s Gift evolved from a simple pledge following the death of River Waddell to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in November 2011. This pledge was to Stamp Out SIDS and ensure that no other parent would endure the pain and suffering of the unexpected and unexplained loss of their precious child.

River’s Gift is Australia’s solely SIDS focused charity, dedicated to funding world leading scientific research, providing safe sleep education and raising awareness of this devastating syndrome.

SIDS is still one of the largest causes of death of children aged between 1 month and 12 months of age.

On July 2nd 2011, our beautiful baby boy and first child, River Jak Adam was born, weighing 7lb 3oz. He was perfect in every way.
