WIPP is a proud partner with AT&T for their “It Can Wait” campaign

ICW

September is here, and we’re shifting the It Can Wait® movement into high gear! During this month, we want you to show your commitment to this cause by sharing our new impactful video, “Close to Home.” There’s power in numbers!

Friends, family members, and even your social network can make a difference. While many of us have hundreds of smartphone contacts, new research from AT&T found that 2-in-3 people have almost all or most of their smartphone communications with just 5 people. More than 8-in-10 surveyed said they’d likely stop or reduce their smartphone use while driving if one or more of their top 5 contacts asked them to.1 Let’s band together and keep each other safe behind the wheel. Here’s how:

Spread the Word
During the month of September, you can spread the word by:

  1. Sharing this video “Close to Home” on social with your family, friends, and social network. Your influence can help keep those closest to you safe. #Tag5toSave5 friends by encouraging them to share this life-saving message.
