From Anger to Action - Keep Kids Alive!


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Margaret Mead
Dear Friend of KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25,

Remember, an average of 102 human beings – daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents, friends – die each day on America’s roadways. Just today I received this "Google" alert about the following incidents:
When we consider the reasons for many of these deaths, it is easy to be angry – about speeders, stop-sign/stop-light runners, tailgaters, those who fail to buckle up or utilize their blinker properly, or who drive while intoxicated or intexticated; and the list goes on and on.
The challenge is to create community-wide initiatives that turn anger into action. The aim is to engage all citizens in making our roadways safer for the benefit of everyone. As the new school year unfolds, consider starting, or expanding upon, a community-wide campaign to educate and engage residents of all ages to create safe driving/pedestrian/cycling environments. Here are a few ways to get started.

Thanks to all who have responded by donating to support the mission of KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25®. We continue to need your financial support. Donate to support the mission of at KKAD25 Donate.

be the last two minutes of someone’s life.”
