To date, River’s Gift has funded Australian and global research partnerships, educated thousands of parents across Australia on SIDS and safe sleeping, all in support of our mission of Stamping Out SIDS.

When a child dies, the ripple effect is felt far and wide, and Geelong as a community has made River’s Gift what it is today.

We are proud to be a Geelong based organisation with global recognition and support.
