2020 Distraction-Free Life Calendars Are Here!

Screen Shot 2019-11-23 at 11.28.54 AM

In our Drivers-In-Making program last August, elementary aged students were asked to draw a picture to describe the dangers of distracted driving. The results were pretty remarkable.

 

So, we've compiled the drawings into the 2020 calendar and included anniversaries of loved ones lost to distracted driving as a daily reminder to drive distraction free. All proceeds from the calendars will go towards our education programs for kids of all ages.

 

Gift your loved ones this meaningful calendar for the holidays. Order your calendars today!
