Secure your TV for children's safety

Safe Kids Worldwide is launching a national effort to prevent injuries from TV and furniture tip-overs to educate communities by telling all families to do a safety check.
The recent report done by Safe Kids Worldwide Sanus says that
  • 1 child dies every 3 weeks from a TV tipping over
  • 31% increase in injuries over the last 10 years
  • nearly 13000 children injured in US each year due to TV tip-overs
  • 3 out of 4 parents don't secure their TV to the wall
  • 7 out of 10 children under 5 years get hurt
  • 9 out of 10 require hospitalization
  • people don't mount their TV because they don't want to damage the wall
  • Most families are not aware of this safety measure
I hope this sponsored post will shed light to this concerning issue.
