“Welcome back, Boy George.”
Those were the words that kicked off last night’s episode of The New Celebrity Apprentice. And it didn’t take long for our Ambassador, Boy George, to return to his winning ways.
Will Boy George become The New Celebrity Apprentice? We certainly hope so.
Last year, we were thrilled to learn that Boy George selected Safe Kids Worldwide as his charity in the competition. And he has brought his creative energy, warmth, good humor, passion for our cause and his amazing fundraising skills to the show - and yes, an array of wonderful, colorful hats as well. We are thrilled that he made it to the final competition and are rooting for him to win. Stay tuned for the final show on February 13.

Losing a colleague, a friend, is tough. Emilie Crown was such an advocate, such a dedicated Child Passenger Safety instructor, such a passionate person. She ran her local Safe Kids Coalition Buckle Up program in Montgomery County, Md. with events several times a week. Her passing is a huge loss for her family, Safe Kids, the CPS community and all the technicians and parents who were the beneficiaries of her relentless and passionate efforts. She was our “go to” leader for everything from reviewing programs to organizing events to media outreach.

There’s a lot for parents to think about to keep kids safe around the home. Securing top-heavy furniture and TVs to the wall, installing gates at the top and bottom of stairs and keeping cleaners locked up, out of sight and reach are just a few. But have you also thought about the laundry room?

Do you know what you can’t feel, taste, hear or smell but can still be deadly in your home? The answer is carbon monoxide (CO). CO can put our kids, pregnant moms and senior citizens at particular risk.
There’s an easy way to protect your family from the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, also known as the “silent killer.” It’s a carbon monoxide detector. You can purchase one to install in your home or apartment for a very reasonable cost (under $50), a CO detector can even be combined with a smoke alarm.
