“X the TXT,” a campaign sponsored by Allstate Insurance, hopes to stop the dangerous practice of texting while driving.
Back in November, Sparks said, “I am really passionate about this issue and am so thrilled to have an ‘X the TXT’ event at the Experience. The event is focused on encouraging people to make a difference in their communities and families. By pledging not to text and drive we can save thousands of live – choosing not to pick up the phone and keeping your eyes on the road can be the difference between life and death.”
Teens and families at the event were asked to add their thumbprints to a banner as a public pledge not to drive and text.
All of the proceeds raised by her events will benefit a number of charities, including the Miami Children’s Hospital. On February 4, Jordin and David delivered teddy bears to children at the hospital.
