Born June 2, 2003, we remember Weslea Teraberry today. The would be 10 yr. old little girl is the catalyst behind one of the most important grassroots child safety initiative related to window covering safety. Her message of ABC’s (Awareness of Blind Cord Safety) continues to teach the world how important it is to spread the message and also recommend cordless and child safe window coverings where children live and frequent.
