Keep Kids Alive Drive 25
February 28, 2011

I am the secretary of our school PTA, a retired teacher of 30 years, and mother of 2. I have seen the way traffic flies down the hill at our school (yet the city does nearly nothing to slow them down); my own daughter watched her junior high friend get hit by a car not 2 feet from her on the way home from school one day (did a back flip, lost her shoe, and miraculously received no fatal injury); and I even received a warning ticket years ago for driving too fast near a school (in summer, so I didn't realize the speed limits were "on"). Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 is SO IMPORTANT in getting the word out. The phrase, "Don't let the two minutes you save be the last two minutes of someone else's life." sticks with me... almost hauntingly. I hope it sticks with EVERYONE who hears it. and if they all take it to heart, the lives that are saved may one day be my grandchildren, the kids at my school, YOUR children, YOUR neighbors, and YOUR friends. This is the single most important organization I have come across during my first year as a PTA officer. EVERYONE needs to know about this group, their message, and the means to save lives! Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 deserves respect, donations, and recognition for the wonderful job they are doing to educate and reform drivers while saving lives.

The Great!

I;ve personally experienced the results of this organization in my own driving. I can't even think about letting my lead foot stop someone from living, so I now plan ahead and leave 2 minutes earlier, so I am NEVER going to take the last two minutes of someone's life.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get more corporate sponsorship so the costs of the signs could be reduced for lower income areas through some sort of a scholarship program. I want to see the signs where they REALLY need to be, not just where people can afford them.

How did you find this group?

On the Internet, while looking for a source for stickers to remind families to BUCKLE UP FOR SAFETY!

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

(See above... I now drive slower, plan ahead, leave earlier, etc.) I was allowed to pick up stickers to remind our families to buckle up, information about the program, and a yard sign to post at our event (and give away in our free raffle) all at no cost. This was fantastic, as our school is a low income school and I was running our Health and Wellness event on a very minimal budget with everything free to all participants. About 250 people attended our event, the stickers were all distributed, the families were informed, and a sixth grade boy won the yard sign. He proudly stood on the corner waving his sign at passing traffic while he waited for his grandmother to pick him up and observe his bounty.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
