2014-THANKSgiving

Take the Pledge (and Win a Samsung Galaxy III!) CLOSED

It Can Wait

I have a confession: I used to text and drive.

I’m not proud of it, but I did. A lot.

And then, a couple of years ago, I saw the below ad and it completely changed my outlook on texting and driving. Was a text or e-mail worth getting in a accident over? Dying?? No. Of course not.

Drivers who text while driving are 23 times more likely to be in a crash. Yeah.

In 2009, AT&T began raising awareness about the dangers of texting and driving with the It Can Wait campaign, and has since gotten over 1 million people to sign a pledge online saying that they will not text and drive. I’ve pledged at ItCanWait.org, and you should too.

To help raise awareness about the importance of putting down the phone, I’ve partnered with AT&T to give away an “It Can Wait” gift pack.

What’s in the gift pack?

  • An “It Can Wait” branded case for the Samsung Galaxy SIII.
  • An “It Can Wait” T-Shirt
  • 2 “It Can Wait” Thumbbands
  • 2 “It Can Wait” Stickers
  • A SkinIt coupon for one free large device skin
and…

 

  • A brand new Samsung Galaxy SIII.

 

Samsung Galaxy SIII

 

I’m an iPhone girl, but I also confess to falling in love with the Galaxy. It’s sleeker than the iPhone, the battery lasts longer and it’s faster. Best of all, there’s an actual zoom on the camera, something I’ve longed for with the iPhone. It’s the coolest phone I’ve seen and I feel like a traitor saying that. But it’s true. The only downside is the steep price tag, ($549) which is why it would be so awesome to win one here!To enter, just leave a comment below and I’ll pick a winner on January 10th at noon using randomizer.org.

 

And, please pledge not to text and drive. It really can wait.
{Update: Congrats to Kim, lucky number 125. I’ll be in touch to get your mailing address!!}

    I too used to text and drive using mostly the autocomplete. I don’t anymore after watching the commercials and seeing the accidents that have been caused by texting and driving.

    What a awesome way to spread the message ! I would love to see them enforce this law more often then they do in my state(md) as it is now a primary offense.The phone is pretty awesome to & would make a great b-day present to myself since my b-day is the 10th ! Loved your book as well :) sitting right in front on my bookshelf !!

    I’m an iPhone girl but have heard amazing things about then galaxy! And texting and driving is extremely stupid especially with your kids in the car, which I’ve seen too many times.
