Mom who turned personal tragedy into quest to keep other children safe is honored this Mother’s Day
Austin, Tx. – May 5, 2014 … This Mother’s Day KidsAndCars.org, a national nonprofit child safety organization, is publicly recognizing Kristie Reeves-Cavaliero of Austin, TX as one of an extraordinary group of volunteers: mothers whose lives were changed forever due to the tragic loss of their child, and who now honor their child’s memory by working tirelessly to ensure another family does not have to suffer a similar loss.
Kristie Reeves-Cavaliero is one such exceptional KAC volunteer. In May 2011, Kristie Reeves-Cavaliero, Pharm.D., lost her daughter Ray Ray, 1, after she was inadvertently left behind in her husband’s truck all day thinking he had safely dropped her off at daycare. Soon after, the couple founded Ray Ray’s Pledge in Austin, Texas, in their daughter’s honor. Ray Ray’s Pledge, a project of KidsAndCars.org, is now internationally recognized for its focus on child vehicular heatstroke prevention. Reeves-Cavaliero works tirelessly every day to help eliminate child heatstroke tragedies. She has spoken at national events, been involved with state legislative efforts, written awareness articles, and has done countless interviews locally, nationally and even internationally.
KidsAndCars.org has named Reeves-Cavaliero as an “Exceptional Mother of Inspiration” in recognition of her unwavering commitment to educating parents and other caregivers and raising awareness about how to keep children safe in and around vehicles.
“Each recipient of the ‘Exceptional Mother of Inspiration’ award is a tremendous example of selflessness, compassion and unbelievable courage,” said Janette Fennell, president and founder of KidsAndCars.org, “After a crippling trauma, she has volunteered her time and energy to help other families prevent or deal with the devastation of similar tragedies. Although nothing will bring back her child or heal her wounds, she continues her volunteer efforts to keep America’s children safe.”
