Celebrations are in order – we did it!
On behalf of everyone at AT&T, NOYS (the National Organizations for Youth Safety), and SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), we would like to thank all of you who supported our pledge campaign against texting and driving. So far we've reached thousands of friends and family and spread awareness about the dangers of texting from behind the wheel. Not only are we saving lives on the road, but we've managed to raise $100,000! These funds will help NOYS and SADD expand their safe teen driving programs across the country and empower more young leaders to champion the fight against texting and driving.
We couldn't have done so much, so quickly without you! But remember, it doesn't stop here. We need your help to keep the movement going. Please continue to spread the word about the dangers of texting while driving. You could save the life of a loved one!
Thank you everyone for taking the pledge to not text and drive and always remember: no message is worth a life. It can wait.
National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS) would like to take this opportunity to thank all those that supported NOYS's pledge campaign to not text while driving. Together, we reached thousands of friends and family to spread awareness about the importance of safe driving and to ultimately save lives on the road. In addition to saving lives, you helped us raise $50,000! These funds will help enhance NOYS's safe teen driving programs and offer more leadership opportunities for youth. The pledge campaign would not have been possible without the generous support from AT&T. Again, thank you everyone for taking the pledge to not text while driving!
SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) would like to thank all of you that pledged not to text while driving and asked your friends and family to do so as well. Thanks to your pledges, SADD will receive $50,000 from AT&T! We plan to use these funds to develop a student speakers bureau for events around the country. The bureau will urge the public to drive safely and without distraction, helping to multiply the message even more. Special thanks to AT&T for their amazing commitment to safe driving and teens – what an inspiring effort! Thanks again, everyone!
