Turn off my hand held technology for one day on Aug 14, 2014

This pledge closed about 4 years ago

How this will help

Have you ever wondered what life would be like if we put down our hand held technology for a day? 

I recently asked someone if they would be ok if I took their cell phone away from them for a day and they looked at me as if I asked them If I could take their life.

Have we become so addicted to these hand held devices that we don't know what to do without them?  Don't get me wrong, I love technology, I just think we have forgotten what life is like without it.

What would you do without your cell phone for a day?

Could you put down your favorite handheld device (iPad, cell phone, mp3 player) for one day?

If you think you can do this I ask you to take the challenge with me; on Aug 14, 2014 I'm turning off my cell phone and all our technology for the whole day.  It's up to you which devices or how many devices you turn off but to take the challenge you have to turn off at least one device.

If you plan on taking the challenge please take the pledge and spread the word.  Also leave a little message telling everyone what you will do that day and how do you think you will react.

My personal opinion is it will be hard for people to fulfill on this challenge, do you think you can do it?
