AT&T Honors iKeepSafe for ‘Txting & Driving’ Pledge

AT&T Awards Safety Organizations With $250,000

AT&T announced this week that it will award a combined $250,000 to safety organizations that took AT&T’s pledge to not text while driving. iKeepSafe is one of the organizations selected to receive a portion of the award.

Two months ago, AT&T started the “Txting & Driving … It Can Wait” campaign, which raises awareness of the risks of texting while driving. AT&T’s message is directed at all drivers, but especially to youth because they are just learning how to drive, and they are a very wired generation. A recent study by the Pew Internet Project reports that over 80 percent of teens ages 16 and 17 own a cell phone.

“We thank AT&T for this award and their efforts to spread this important message,” said iKeepSafe President Marsali Hancock. “We continue to encourage parents to share the AT&T ‘Txting & Driving’ videos with their children to have a meaningful discussion about the consequences of texting while driving. Go with them to the ‘It Can Wait” pledge on facebook and take the pledge together.”

AT&T said in a news release that more than 28,000 people have taken the pledge. You can take the pledge by visiting www.facebook.com/att.

Other safety organizations to receive the award include: National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS), ConnectSafely, Enough is Enough, Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI), Put on the Brakes, Inc., Stay Alive Just Drive and Teens in the Driver Seat.
