Warning Label

I have been in contact with one of the Oregon Senators, Joe Gallegos and his team. 

They have been working on a bill to put a Warning Label on all new washing machines.
***The warning label would be a red picture of a child falling in...

I think this is wonderful and hope they do too. (so so horrible but wonderful,
always bittersweet feelings for me)
 
PLEASE HELP support the bill by writing a quick hand written letter to any of the following senators, it doesn't matter what state you live in
*If you cant write a letter, an email or phone call will work too, but a hand written letter is best.

Example of a letter


Dear Senator Orrin Hatch,

I support the washing machine warning labels and feel this would help to bring awareness to parents of the danger in their own home. I also support mandatory locks on old and new washing machines.

Sincerely, Tiffany Hebb- concerned mother
