One day I was scrolling Facebook when a friend shared a video that really shook me up. It was one of those viral videos making the rounds for good reason- it hit close to home. The video was a home movie from an average family. They were just having a routine day, talking and having fun, but when the camera spanned the room a horrifying image was captured- a little boy was trapped in the cord from the window coverings. The video stopped there. Thankfully the little boy survived but the video was left as a reminder of the silent danger lurking in most of our homes. After watching that video I was set on ordering new blinds for our home from somewhere like SmartBlinds. I could’t stand the thought of something like that happening to one of my children, so when I was asked to raise awareness of how SelectBlinds.com has decided to make all of their window coverings cordless to prevent these accidents from ever happening, I was happy to share the news on my blog!
