Drowning is the NUMBER 1 KILLER of children ages 1-5 and NUMBER 2 KILLER of children ages 1-14. Together we're spread awareness and FIGHT DROWNING!

THE PERSEPHONE PROJECT was launched to fill a desperate need; the lack of awareness surrounding drowning. The fact that drowning is the number 1 killer of children ages 1-4 is a shocking statistic. Perhaps an even more disturbing fact is that for every 1 drowning death an average of 5 children will be left with injuries requiring lifetime care. 

Today, THE PERSEPHONE PROJECT is working to create a National Comprehensive Program using recommendations from The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) and a template based on the tried and proven Designated Driver program.  We are pairing with people in positions to make immediate and permanent changes; pediatricians and school administrators. Already giving financial help to survivors in need, providing public speakers for seminars, continued education classes, and distributing age appropriate literature, we look to a future of expanding into federal legislation, national tv campaigns, and creating a permanent spot for drowning prevention awareness in pediatricians' safety discussions and public school curriculums. 

Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and W.H.O. agree that 80% of drownings can be prevented through awareness; but not without your help.  Get the facts ( spread the word, and please make a donation. Your tax deductible gift WILL SAVE LIVES!

Warm Regards,

Tammy Webner, President
