You may have the opportunity to assist grieving families with writing to their Representatives to create laws so that future children can live and sleep in safe environments.

Would you recommend Parents for Window Blind Safety?

by Michelle H. (August 25, 2014)
PFWBS is a great site to get info on the dangers of window blind safety. I highly recommend this group. I had to idea about the dangers of the inner cords on blinds. I thought tying the pull string up out of my 16 month olds reach was safe enough to keep my son safe but no that's not the case. The only way to be safe is to go cordless. This group is also an awesome support group for those who have lost their child in such an awful unimaginable way.

I didn't know that window blind accidents occur every two weeks in the US. I didn't know that the silent danger hanging in my home would take the life of my child in less than 60 sec. This organization is dedicated to saving, educating and advocating. Working to create change in the industry to prevent further accidents, like Colton's, from occurring. I felt compassion, support, and encouragement from the day I called. The support group through PFWBS was one of the most helpful things I have done for myself and my family since in my son died in Oct. 2013. I hope you will consider getting involved in this amazing organization. You would be helping save lives and helping parents who have experienced first hand this type of tragic accident. You won't find a group of people more dedicated, more compassionate or harder working then the team at Parents for Window Blind Safety.

After the loss of my 2 year old son in March of 2014, I was directed to Parents for Window Blind Safety. The level of support and education this organization offered to me, during a time of utter darkness, devastation, and despair was priceless. Via PFWBS, my family, friends, colleagues, and many others received critical blind safety awareness and education --helping to ensure their children would not meet the same fate as my son. The advocacy this organization undertakes, lobbying and petitioning for mandatory safety standards across the window covering industry is commendable. I would highly recommend PFWBS.

Linda Kaiser is dedicated to pushing government agencies and window blind manufacturers to remove corded blinds from the marketplace. As a grandmother who lost her 3 1/2 year old grandson to blind cord asphyxiation, I support Linda and the Parents for Window Blind Safety Organization. Jeannine L. Muhn (grandmother of Chaince).
