Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Kailee Mills Foundation is working to increase seat belt use throughout the country. On average, around 90% of Americans say they wear their seat belt, but that number is declining and that still leaves millions of unbelted drivers and passengers at risk of death or injury. We will continue to spread awareness about the risks of not wearing your seat belt in order to reduce fatality and injury resulting from non-seat belt use.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Kailee Mills Foundation’s mission is to reduce fatality and injury resulting from non-seat belt use through awareness, education, and community involvement. Through our programs we aim to increase seat belt use among all drivers and passengers, and assist families impacted by vehicle crashes with financial and emotional support.

The Kailee Mills Foundation has been the spokesperson for Texas Department of Transportation's Click It or Ticket Campaign for two years, speaking at press conferences across the state to promote seat belt safety as seen at https://youtu.be/Ru1BjpZRfCM. Our school programs include assembly presentations and seat belt checks to bring awareness to teens about the importance of seat belt use, as well as seat belt challenges that directly impact students as seen here: https://youtu.be/pBJ_sFvvyJg. Throughout the year, community awareness events are held to reach a broader family audience with the seat belt safety message. Our team travels the state with Kailee's crash vehicle replica to perform seat belt safety presentations. Through organizational outreach, safety presentations are held to inform employers and employees about seat belt safety at work and at home.

The Kailee Mills Foundation has a team of 4, hundreds of dedicated volunteers, as well as the Board Members of the Foundation who work each day to help reach the goals of the organization. Through weekly team meetings and monthly Board meetings, our passionate team sets short and long term goals with directed paths to achieve them. All of these goals and actions are set with the mission in mind. The Kailee Mills Foundation also has an Advisory Board who provides valuable input and service to the organization.

Kailee Mills Foundation has been the spokesperson for Texas Department of Transportation's Click It or Ticket Campaign for two years, with a reach of over 445 million, performed over 346 safety presentations and events reaching over 15.5 million people, provided family assistance totaling over $301,000, and awarded $106,150 in college scholarships.
