As the school year begins, our friends at State Farm are busy working with students as usual. And as their partner in helping prevent teen traffic accidents, the Humanity Project is happy to help promote State Farm’s 2014 edition of the Celebrate My Drive campaign. We recently recorded a podcast with Jose Soto, the company’s terrific public affairs specialist in Florida. Jose is a good friend of the community — and the Humanity Project.In the new podcast, we discuss Celebrate My Drive as well as the Humanity Project’s innovative I Care: Just Let Me Drive program. You can catch the entertaining podcast by clicking on this link: Listen to the podcast.
This year’s Celebrate My Drive will involve high schools all over the United States, each one registered at no cost through State Farm to take part in the contest. Those schools that collect the highest number of safe driving commitments will win grants of as much as $100,000. The top two schools also receive a concert from The Band Perry — performed at their school. To register, just go to the Celebrate My Drive website: Visit Celebrate My Drive. At the Humanity Project, we believe that Celebrate My Drive helps to engage thousands more teens in an effort to make driving safer for themselves and their peers. Remember, traffic accidents are the leading cause of death among teens, killing more young people than cancer, homicide and suicide combined. That’s a powerful incentive for all of us to do what we can to stop these tragedies. Celebrate My Drive is one part of the solution and we are proud to be State Farm’s partner in the campaign.
