    Post Media Advocacy

    I know at least a few of us have written letters in response to & reported images of non-/misuse ... would anyone be interested in a sort of uniform document with blank fill-ins "_______________" to make it easier for us all to get the urgency of the issue across to the media and/or manufacturers

    I posted the form to fill out & mail in to report to SafeBeltSafe (in the media/news area), but the individual companies should also hear it from us directly! I know I for one have a pretty hectic schedule & I thought that a sticky with a general letter for us to copy/past & complete for mailing in to specific media companies might be helpful for spearding awareness ... in hopes of reducing the amount of such dangerous non-/misuse portrayals (such as on Super Nanny, etc.): hopefully the more a bunch of viewers write in the more likely they'll be to do something about it!

    Join Starlight's Book Club, read your manuals! Car seats are cheaper than caskets & you can use them more than once. How much did your wedding cost? How long did it last? Does your child's safety seem more affordable now?

    OK, I'll try to work on something -- but, it's probably going to take me a while (between mommying, college & applying to transfer + volunteering)....

    Should I submit in the articles or media area
