Are you Fully Charged?-Win a family four pack of tickets to The Greatest Show on Earth!

I love when Facebook and other social networking sites are used to get the word out about a great cause! The latest-Are You Fully Charged, is a safety initiative — undertaken by NYC regional office of Feld Entertainment, producers of the 141st Edition of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey (not-so-coincidentally titled “Fully Charged”) — to reach out to everyone everywhere to make sure that the batteries in your smoke detectors are — yes, FULLY CHARGED. Check it out at

As part of the initiative, anyone who visits can sign up to receive an e-mail alert about smoke detector safety on March 13, which is when Daylight Savings Time begins (the traditional day for checking one’s smoke detector batteries).

Everyone who signs up will be entered to win a family four pack of tickets to The Greatest Show On Earth at the Prudential Center (February 23-27), the IZOD Center (March 2-13), or Nassau Coliseum (March 16-20).

Some of the Winter Workspace public programs are drop-in, but many require registration (though they are free), just because enthusiasm for the program is running high.
