* I received the information below to share with my readers.  The giveaway gift will be sent from the pr company directly to the winner.

I just recently purchased my very first Flat Screen tv and I couldn't be more excited about it.  I have noticed though recently that it can seem wobbly on my tv stand unlike my old heavier model.  I have thought about getting a tv mount for it and have even been looking online for options.  Recently Sanus and Safe Kids Worldwide teamed together to make families more aware of the risk of flat screen tvs and I was shocked at what I learned. I will definitely also be getting a tv mount for my tv.   Below is more information about it...

For many Americans, a flat panel TV is a great way to enjoy family time and entertainment.  However, most parents are unaware of the safety risks that flat panel TVs pose for kids.  Due to increasing size and new ultra thin designs, today’s flat panel TVs can easily tip over when bumped or pulled, toppling off of furniture and causing injury or even death.
Bringing this risk to the forefront, SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide.  By educating consumers on the risk of unsecured flat panel TV’s, SANUS and Safe Kids Worldwide offer safe solutions for families across the nation by reducing TV tip-over related injuries and fatalities.

A 2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety revealed:
·         A child is killed every three weeks from an unsecured TV
·         Every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room due to a TV tip-over related injury
·         Between 2000 and 2011, 215 fatalities have resulted from TV tip-over
·         An estimated 17,000 people each year, the majority of which are children, are treated for injuries from TV tip-overs
·         Reported cases have increased almost 25% from 2006  to 2010, and over the last 10 years, injuries have increased by 31%
