The fundraising deadline is fast approaching for the planned Text Kills® documentary "Smartphones of Mass Destruction." Text Kills® is a donation-supported outreach program that partners with law enforcement, fire/safety authorities, schools, other non-profits, community outreach programs, and corporate safety officers in an effort to educate and increase public awareness concerning the dangers of cell phone use while driving or when used to bully and harass (text-bullying and cyber-bullying). Text Kills® works with Bully Buster USA™ in community outreach and safety awareness, dedicated to educating the public about the deadly issues of distracted driving and text-bullying. To help spread the Text Kills®' message of driver safety and responsibility, the Text Kills® Tour Bus traverses the country, collecting signatures on its sides from people pledging not to text and drive.
The Text Kills® “Indiegogo” project is designed to create a one-of-a-kind, educational documentary that focuses on four main aspects of the relatively new, and very dangerous byproduct, of using mobile technology while driving. They will explore and expose what happens chemically in the brain when people engage in texting while driving (TWD), hear from esteemed psychologists on how TWD changes our behavior and affects us psychologically and emotionally, look at the latest technology trends in mobile communications (including an exploration of what lies ahead in terms of technology design), and analyze the “what” and the “why” behind various state and federal initiatives that lawmakers are now planning as part of their effort to discourage distracted driving.
