Back in 2008, 2-year-old Joshua Collingsworth drowned in his family pool. His family was devastated, but they want to make sure it doesn’t happen to any other children. Joshua’s dad wrote a book called Josh the Baby Otter which teaches kids to stay away from the water, unless they’re with a parent. The Joshua Collingsworth Memorial Foundation raises money to print these books and put them in kids’ hands.
