We are continually surrounded by bad news. It’s nice to find a good story from time to time.

New Jersey gives out free baby boxes in move to lower infant mortality rates
Babies born in New Jersey this year will go home with a sturdy, safe box to sleep in and additional newborn essentials -- all for free. On Thursday, the Garden State became the first in the US to launch a universal baby box program in an attempt to reduce infant mortality rates...
The cardboard boxes, distributed at Cooper University Healthcare and Southern New Jersey Perinatal Cooperative, come with a firm mattress, a waterproof cover and a fitted sheet, in addition to diapers, wipes, breast cream, breast pads, a onesie and an activity cart: about $150 in materials.

Pregnancy Care Centers have done this in the US for years too... along with prenatal care, ongoing parenting classes, baby supplies, etc. All free to the new mothers, and in most states entirely funded by donations.

We don't have to wait for our governing bureaucracies to jump on the bandwagon.
