Stewie the Duck launches free water safety app on iTunes


Stew Leonard III Children’s Charities today announced the launch of its new Stewie the Duck Learns to Swim mobile app for iPad and iPhone. The app, which is free of charge, is the first app of its kind designed to promote water safety to children. It was remarkably approved by Apple on April 4, 2012, which would have been Stew Leonard III’s 25th birthday, a toddler who drowned on January 1, 1989, sparking his parents to pledge that they would do everything in their power to prevent this tragedy from striking other families. “Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children under age 5. We see kids who are using and enjoying their parents’ iPhone and iPads every day, so we knew that developing a water safety app would be a great way to communicate with parents and children alike” said Kim and Stew Leonard, founders of Stew Leonard III Children’s Charities.
