Allstate’s X the TXT Program Has 100,000 Fans
The brilliant part of the Allstate program is the DSGN8D TXTR (designated texter program if you’re over the age of 20). Basically, it is encouraging people to hand over their mobile devices before getting behind the wheel. It’s just like handing over the keys when you have too much to drink.
Grammy Award-nominee and Broadway star Jordin Sparks, actress Meaghan Martin (Camp Rock, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, 10 Things I Hate About You), pop rock band Honor Society, R&B singer Mateo and Big Rob – along with their DSGN8D TXTRs – have joined Jonas in supporting the effort by registering online and will be making appearances in select cities during the national tour.
This ties into an ongoing campaign called “Faces of Distracted Driving” by the federal Department of Transportation against distracted driving that features heart wrenching stories about loved ones killed by distracted drivers.
