AT&T Digital You Program Offers Great Tools for Seniors

Last month AT&T worked with local nonprofits in Los Angeles and Houston to surprise seniors with smart devices they can use to stay connected. Four of our bloggers were able to go along and spread the cheer when the lucky seniors were presented with their devices. During the live event, a camera crew was able to capture those moments and an amazing video was created to show the gratitude expressed by the seniors about something as simple as receiving a smartphone or tablet.

"Today started a little differently. I partnered with AT&T as they delivered smart phones to five special senior citizens along side Meals on Wheels. The first woman we visited was so sweet as she told us about her family in El Salvador and how she had recently been hit by a drunk driver as she was walking home. I'm glad we could put a smile on her face during rough times. She was so excited to receive a couple extra gifts, especially when she noticed that her new phone has a camera! No more flip phone for Maria. :) #ATTImpact #ad#LatinaBloggers"

Isolation and loss of independence are two of the biggest threats aging seniors face, but through initiatives like AT&T's Digital You, which provide online tools, apps and resources for people of all ages to learn how to have a safe and secure online experience, they can say good-bye to isolation and losing independence. Our Latina Bloggers shared all about the Digital You Program and the adorable video made during the delivery of the devices.

"Los dispositivos móviles nos permiten de una manera fácil y muy eficiente, recordarnos citas, cuando debemos tomar medicamentos, seguir de cerca nuestra salud, la alimentación, la cantidad y calidad de sueño y mucho otros aspectos de la vida cotidiana tan importantes."

Mommy Teaches

"She loves being independent so having to rely on others to take her to run her errands, take my uncle to his appointments, do grocery shopping or even help with the use of a cell phone can feel a little demoralizing. I loved hearing that AT&T has got that last part covered! I love the way they thought about the seniors and partnered with local nonprofits to surprise them with smart devices they can use to stay connected"

"It’s so important for us to stay connected to my grandmother and we depend on her smartphone to keep us all connected. This time of year is not only difficult for my abuela,but it’s difficult for millions of seniors. The 3 biggest threats of aging include hunger, isolation and loss of independence."

#LatinaBloggers Take AT&T’s #ItCanWait No-Texting-While-Driving Pledge

Our society is becoming aware that texting and driving can be fatal but far too many people still ignore the risk.  AT&T has begun a movement called #ItCanWait which is geared towards making texting and driving as unacceptable as drinking and driving.

att_icw_lgt_sp_rgb_blu_pos

Since the movement was launched in 2009, more than 2 million no-texting-while-driving pledges have been logged through ItCanWait.com, social sites including Facebook, text-to-pledge and events.

We're working together with AT&T to help spread the word and have engaged a select group of #LatinaBloggers who want to work with us to encourage their readers to take the pledge. These bloggers are aware that texting while driving is involved in 100,000+ vehicle crashes each year, often causing injuries and deaths, and have decided to take the pledge themselves and join us in promoting this important movement.  Visit their blogs to read more!
