Jordin Sparks snuggles up to her mom Jodi as they give a thumbs up during the national “X the TXT” tour held at the Shoreham Hotel in NYC on Tuesday afternoon (November 17).
Sponsored by Allstate Insurance, the 19-year-old singer publicly pledged not to text and drive by leaving their mark — in this case, their thumbprints, on a pledge banner making its way around the country this holiday season. This kicks off the 30-city tour during which teens and their families will be asked to add their thumbprints to the banner as a public pledge not to text and drive. Teens who sign the pledge will receive thumb bands they can wear as a reminder and symbol of their pledge.
Jordin shared, “Unfortunately, it can be easy to forget the dangers of texting and driving when you get behind the wheel. That’s why it is important for teens, their friends and families to acknowledge its risks and pledge together not to do it. I’m glad to take this public pledge with Allstate, because sending a text isn’t worth taking a life.”
