Why injury? It's this simple: more children die from injuries every year than from the next three leading causes of death combined. Nobody knows this because no one is talking about it. In the U.S., one child dies every hour from an injury that could have been prevented. Around the world, a child dies every 30 seconds as the result of an injury. You don’t need to have a child to know that we can do better.

 

Round of Applause: Boy George

End Injury

Today, we give a Round of Applause to musical performer and child injury prevention advocate Boy George. Through his participation in The New Celebrity Apprentice, Boy George has brought national attention--and a half-million dollars for his chosen charity, Safe Kids Worldwide--to the ongoing problem of child injury. Throughout the series, the viewing audience was constantly reminded that injuries are not only predictable but preventable! If even one parent or caregiver heard Boy George's message and took action to keep their young family members safer, his mission was achieved. So thank you, Boy George, for using your voice, your platform, and your fame to improve the health and safety of children across the United States and around the world.
