LBC Live Party: Los Angeles #LatinaBloggers Take AT&T's #ItCanWait Pledge

ItCanWait Last week we hosted one of our LBC Live Parties for L.A. #LatinaBloggers at Lucky Strike in Hollywood to spread the word about AT&T's #ItCanWait campaign to take the pledge to never text and drive. While the event allowed us to get together and have fun, our purpose was to shine light on how truly dangerous texting or even just checking out phones is while driving. Although we may feel comfortable multi tasking, as most of us bloggers do, we pledged to say #ItCanWait because our lives and the lives of others are too important to risk over a text message. As we took our bowling balls and rolled with careful aim for a strike, we were reminded of how some things require our full and undivided attention.

Check out the event photos on the Latina Bloggers Connect Facebook page and share your reasons why texting and driving can wait on Twitter and Instagram with the #ItCanWait  hashtag. Let's keep the message rolling!

#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.

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!
