There were tough challenges this week on The New Celebrity Apprentice, but the teams—especially our Ambassador Boy George—rose to the challenges on behalf of their charities. As Arnold Schwarzenegger’s nephew Patrick Knapp said in the board room, “Big applause. Fantastic. Great job,” to our hero Boy George, who “totally over-achieved” in last night’s episode.
Well, it’s more than halfway through the competition and as Governor Schwarzenegger told the contestants in last night’s episode of The New Celebrity Apprentice, “It’s time to wake up and get tough.” Governor Schwarzenegger stressed that only strong competitors remain and that includes our Ambassador Boy George.
National TV Safety Day is February 4
The Super Bowl is one of the most watched events on TV every year, and it’s the perfect time to remind everyone about TV safety. TV safety, which often isn’t a top priority for families, is an important part of home safety and childproofing. If not properly secured, heavier CRT televisions can tip over and harm small children. In fact, every three weeks in the U.S. a child dies from a TV tipping over.
“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.
Because of this question, it’s especially inspiring to hear when Washington actually respond to our views on an issue and changes its mind. Our right to “petition the government” and express our opinions is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution and the First Amendment.
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.
On Monday February 13th, we were on the edge of our seats waiting to see who Gov. Schwarzenegger would name as The New Celebrity Apprentice. It came down to the wire, but in the end the honor went to Matt Iseman, who competed passionately for his charity, the Arthritis Foundation.
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?
