Barrymore appeared at the event and declared being a parent is "the greatest thing I've ever done in my life," as The Huffington Post reports. Barrymore continued by describing the anxieties she feels as a mother trying to keep her daughter safe and happy. She stated "I've never been so worried in my life about making sure that something I care about more than I've ever cared in my life is safe and intact."

Safe Kids Day is a biannual event intended to raise funds for "preventable injuries" which the charity claims are the top killer of children in the US. The charity aims to educate parents and caregivers about the everyday risks children encounter and how to keep their charges safe with information on cribs, car seats and generic household dangers. Barrymore spoke about her approach to parenting as she claimed she was not from "a traditional family" and thus had to do her "homework" in order to ensure her children were protected whilst still being "fun-loving". She described how this was a fine line for many parents as their need to protect their children sometimes made them "uptight because there's so much to care about and to learn about."

In addition to Barrymore, the stars who attended included: Breckin Meyer, Malin Akerman, Ciara and Kendra Wilkinson.
