The Lil' Iguana's Children's Safety Foundation
is a NH based 501(c)3 nonprofit children's foundation
that teaches children important safety & well-being lessons through live musical programs. Lil’ Iguana’s programs are presented in elementary schools, child care facilities, and community events throughout the United States and feature lessons like Buckle-Up, Street Smarts, Get Permission, Who’s a Stranger, and Run, Run, Run, Yell & Tell! Through corporate & individual sponsorships, the foundation is able to present the Lil’ Iguana Live program in elementary schools free of charge. These award-winning programs have been presented in front of over 3 million people in seven countries. Lil’ Iguana’s programming has been credited with saving countless children, with the youngest child being just age 3.
Since 1994, the Lil’ Iguana’s Children’s Safety Foundation has created several proactive, prevention programs to keep kids safe from abduction, child predators, and serious accidental injuries. Lil’ Iguana’s proactive prevention programs are all centered on music and are designed specifically for children ages 2-8. Through Lil’ Iguana programs, children are positively encouraged and taught crucial safety lessons and self-worth through accepting others.
Lil’ Iguana uses educational and proactive teaching mechanisms to ensure children stay safe throughout their childhoods. It has been proven that children learn from interactive, music-based programs; this is why Lil’ Iguana is so effective. Lil’ Iguana’s music driven programs keep children engaged so they can learn countless safety lessons they will remember for the rest of their lives.
Lil’ Iguana’s programs focus on proactive teaching because reactive programs are too late to keep a child safe and save a child’s life. Prevention programs initiated early in a child’s life will help reduce abuse and accidental injuries, while shrinking health care costs associated with these problems.
Lil’ Iguana features a non-threatening approach so children are relaxed enough to listen to the messages, and entertained enough to absorb the information. For over two decades, Lil’ Iguana has become a character that parents have come to trust and children have come to love.
