My First Giveaway SafteyCaps

Everyone wants their kids to be safe. When I found out that I was pregnant with Brookster, one of the first things I thought about was baby proofing not only my house but the grandparent’s house (I knew Mom was going to be the babysitter). We bought those plug covers in order to protect Brookster from the electrical outlet. I never thought that the outlet covers could actually be dangerous. Neither did George DeCell. His daughter Sage choked on one of those plug covers. George knew he needed to do something, so he created SafteyCaps.
When I received the safety caps in the mail, I compared them to the plugs I still have in the outlets. It was clear that the safety caps are a better product. George created them in the shape of a pacifier with the safety holes that are required on pacifiers.

They are clear, so they blend into most outlet covers. A real big plus for me is they are made in the USA, Vermont. George tried to petition the Consumer Product Safety Commission twice in order to try to get the outlet plugs regulated. They told him that since no children have died from this they are not willing to regulate these devices. It is hard for me to believe that some child has to die in order to have something regulated. I guess I am more proactive, save something devastating from happening instead of having the devastation happen then regulate the items. George is trying hard to get the word out about this issue. He wants all bloggers to contact The Ellen Show and Oprah to recommened Safety Caps and the need for regulation. I have emailed the The Ellen Show and Oprah with a recommendation of SafteyCaps. If enough people respond maybe they will listen. It is amazing what a group of parents can do when they get together for a common cause and I think our children’s safety is a great cause.

If you would like to order a set of SafteyCaps please go here.

George has offered to give one of my readers a free 24 pack of Safety Caps. To win please recommend SafteyCaps to The Ellen Show and Oprah. Come back here and leave a comment that you have contacted both of them.
