It is the goal of this app to move drowning, the #1 cause of death for 1 to 4 year olds, to virtual non-existence. Please help by educating our young, innocent children that water is fun when we are all together.
JCMF Children's Charities - Promoting water safety for children around the world through the Josh the Otter and Float 4 Life programs. Our mission is to educate children and adults worldwide about water safety through the utilization of drowning prevention campaigns & early childhood water safety training. Our vision is to eliminate drowning through water safety education and awareness, which will be attained by creating a generational change in the way children and adults perceive bodies of water.
Our goal is to educate children with a fun and simple message:
TO STAY AWAY FROM WATER UNLESS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.
“Josh the Baby Otter” was created to help children comprehend and remember this important message. Ultimately, we want to create a water safety behavior for all children that will be passed on from generation to generation.
We have already distributed 150,000 copies of the book to child care centers, preschools, and kindergarten classrooms across the country. With ongoing support, we will continue our efforts to incorporate this life saving message into every educational curriculum in the United States and beyond. We believe the book; “Josh the Baby Otter” has and will continue to save countless children’s lives.
