WHEN:      July 24 and July 25
           Toyota and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center will
           celebrate the 10^th anniversary of Buckle Up for Life during the
           2014 National Urban League Conference. Please join us for a VIP
WHAT:     reception honoring the program's visionary Dr. Victor Garcia of
           Cincinnati Children's. Additionally, Toyota and Cincinnati
           Children's will present interactive child passenger safety
           demonstrations in the Toyota exhibit space at Duke Energy
           Convention Center.
           Buckle Up for Life is a national program created in 2004 in
           partnership between trauma specialists at Cincinnati Children's and
           Toyota to help save lives by educating families about child
           passenger safety. Since its inception, Buckle Up for Life has
           educated more than 17,000 families nationwide and given away more
           than 40,000 car seats to families in need.
           While cars and trucks today are safer than ever, motor vehicle
           crashes remain one of the leading causes of death for children
WHY:      under 12. Research shows that three out of four car seats in the
           U.S are improperly installed. Hispanics and African American
           children are 10 times less likely to be properly restrained in a
           vehicle.
