buckle up for safety

I can clearly remember the day when we took Camila home from the hospital for the first time and how nervous I was about putting that tiny baby in a huge car seat all by herself. At that moment all that could make me be at ease was knowing that my husband and I had really made a big deal about being prepared with the right car seat and making sure it was properly installed.

Did you know that three out of every four child safety seats in the U.S. are not used or installed correctly? That’s a huge number, but as scary as that sounds what is even worse is that almost 50% of children that are fatally injured in a car accident were unrestrained. It’s hard to believe any parent would do that, but the reality is that for many of us that grew up in Latin America we know it’s also a cultural and socioeconomic issue.

We now know that many of these deaths could have been prevented with the simple use of car seats or seat belts, but we need to share this information with all those that need to learn about the importance of car seat safety. That’s why we’re happy to share that Toyota and the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital have launched and online campaign in both English and Spanish to encourage families to practice safer driving for their children as part of their Buckle Up For Life or Abróchate la Vida program.

Toyota will be donating 10,000 car seats to families in need  and will also be encouraging education on proper car safety and injury prevention.

To learn more about this initiative and take action for kid’s safety, all you have to do is visit www.Causes.com/Toyota and watch a video, available in English and Spanish, on how to properly install a child safety seat and share the video with your friends and family.  We also want to share one of these car seats with three SpanglishBaby readers. Check out the giveaway bellow.
