For the month of October, BlindSaver.com will donate 1 percent of all
proceeds from their cordless window blind collection to charity, Parents
for Window Blind Safety
is spreading awareness about National Window Covering Safety Month in
October. It’s estimated that five to ten children die every year due to
strangulation caused by window blind cords, according to Parents for
Window Blind Safety (PFWBS). Over the years, this has resulted in
hundreds of easily preventable deaths. The number of unreported
incidents and injuries is even greater.
In an effort to raise awareness and prevent future tragedies, BlindSaver
is donating 1 percent of cordless window blind sales during October to
PFWBS’ “Go Cordless Educational Program.” This campaign funds
educational posters in hospitals, daycares, doctors’ offices and other
locations where parents and relatives of young children are likely to
see them. This donation will also help PFWBS create educational videos
to further spread this important message.
“Window cords can be lethal to kids in less than one minute – they’re a
hazard in plain sight. Unfortunately, this hazard is often overlooked by
even the most diligent parents. Parents for Window Blind Safety
encourages parents to go cordless throughout their homes, starting first
in their children’s bedrooms,” said Linda Kaiser, founder of PFWBS.
“October Window Cord Safety Month is important to us and we’re so
thankful to BlindSaver for not only offering affordable cordless blinds,
but for working so hard to bring awareness to this incredibly important
“This is an important cause that often gets overlooked and BlindSaver
wants to do its part to spread awareness and promote safety,” Tim Baker,
president of BlindSaver, offered. “During October, we will be offering
free cordless upgrades on most products to help our customers purchase
this important safety option. In addition, BlindSaver Basics line of
cellular shades are cordless free of charge year round.”
