Announcing the new Research Accelerator Fund

Thanks to your incredible support, over $18 million has been invested into lifesaving research to save babies lives – research that’s helped reduce the number of SIDS deaths by 85% over the last 40 years.

Research Accelerator Fund

That’s over 11,357 babies saved and their families spared the heartbreak and pain of the death of their precious baby or child – all because of you!

But while this is truly remarkable, as a mother, my heart sinks when I see that more than nine children still die suddenly and unexpectedly every single day.

We’re losing them to things like SIDS and stillbirth – and we still don’t know why.

I know that the answers lie in ground-breaking new research.

But research can be expensive and without adequate funding, progress will remain slow.

We simply can’t afford to wait another 40 years to reduce the number of deaths, when so many families are suffering the devastating heartbreak of losing their baby or child today.

That’s why I’m so excited to announce the new Red Nose Research Accelerator Fund!

The Research Accelerator Fund will ensure that more new projects are funded every year, accelerating the next generation of research and unlocking the answers we desperately need.

Will you help kick-start the Research Accelerator Fund by making a tax-deductible donation online today?

As well as accelerating the next generation of research, your generosity also helps fund ongoing Safe Sleep and Safer Pregnancy information, helping ensure that the answers we do have now, keep babies safe today.

And for those nine families that lose their baby or child every day, your support funds vital bereavement support services, completely free of charge, for as long as they need it.

You have the power to accelerate the next generation of research needed to unlock the answers that will save babies lives.

Please support the Research Accelerator Fund by making your tax-deductible donation online today.

Or, if you are able to make your special tax-deductible donation right now over the phone, please call us on 1300 998 698.

I want to thank you again for all you have done so far to help save babies from dying too soon.

With your donation today, I know that we can make sure that Aussie families don’t have to wait another 40 years for lifesaving answers to be uncovered.

With grateful thanks,
