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: Taylor Rosenthal

End Injury

We here at End Injury may be all about preventing injuries to kids, but we know that we can’t avoid every scratch, scrape, and bruise. That’s why this week’s Round of Applause is dedicated to Taylor Rosenthal, a 14-year-old from Alabama with a big idea. He’s the founder of a company that builds vending machines for first aid products.

Taylor, who plays baseball, noticed that in many cases, adults were scrambling to find basic first aid supplies when a player got hurt. Especially in club sports and recreational leagues, first aid kits are often in short supply or nonexistent. So, when he was asked to come up with a business idea for school, he decided to take on the problem himself. The solution: an on-site vending machine that offers basic first aid kits or individual supplies like band-aids or rubber gloves.

We’re awarding this Round of Applause to Taylor because of his ingenuity, creative thinking, and motivation to take on an issue he saw come up in his everyday life. He didn’t just notice the problem; he thought about it critically and came up with a workable solution. With a $30 million buyout offer (which he rejected!) and orders from Six Flags amusement parks, he’s well on his way to making a difference. And that’s simply inspiring.
