Texting/Driving Pledge

SADD can raise $50,000 from AT&T just by collecting pledges not to text while driving - so we need your help!  For every pledge, AT&T will donate $2 to SADD, plus a bonus of $5 for every five friends you invite who also take the pledge.  So pledge today and spread the word!  (If you already did this on behalf of NOYS, this is different. It's the same pledge, but this time the donations go to us.) http://www.causes.com/causes/639835-connect-for-good/actions/1475122?reposter=768206

The back to school season is upon us and the Anthony Telesca Memorial Foundation is excited to announce our participation in the September Round of the Pepsi Refresh Project. Pepsi is giving away millions in grants to top vote-getting ideas that refresh individuals and communities.

Our idea, "I want to Provide Seatbelt Safety and Defensive Driving Events to 4 Schools." will be eligible for voting everyday next month beginning September 1, 2010 at the following link:


To learn more about our idea to help raise awareness for safer roads, videos can be viewed at the following link:


Please feel free to share this idea with family and friends via your favorite social media platforms (i.e. Facebook, Twitter).

Thank you in advance for taking the time and opportunity to vote for our idea in September. With your support and consistent votes, we would be delighted to deliver these safe driving events to help benefit students at our local high schools in Pinellas County, FL.
