By now, you’ve most likely been exposed to numerous jarring advertisements / public service reminders from AT&T on why to NOT text when driving.Â These few second spots are like a slap in the face of reality and we can only hope, pray and wish that everyone who sees these on any media platform, will indeed take them to heart, mind and execution.
We at the Punch are proud to announce a contest in coordination with AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign, which by the way is leading up to the first-ever national awareness day to prevent texting while driving, a day created and established by AT&T, called â€œNo Text on Boardâ€ Day on September 19. Since itâ€™s the first day to raise awareness on a national scale, we all want to get the word out to folks about how dangerous texting and driving is. For example, you are 23 times more likely to get in a car accident if you are texting while driving.
How do you enter? Just get on board with the movement of “It Can Wait” from Monday, September 10th to September 14th.Â Next week we’ll have another contest!
Just Tweet to us at @pamelaspunch with #itcanwait in your tweet, telling us WHY IT CAN WAIT. Readers can also post on our Fan Facebook page www.facebook.com/pamelaspunch explaining why #itcanwait AND/ORÂ SHARE the It Can Wait photo on our page.
o Example tweet: Texting and driving? #itcanwait because I have a family! Thanks @pamelaspunch for raising awareness.
Please, enter early and often and share with your friends!Â The winner will be notified via email and will be shipped the product.
