TextLess Live More is so excited to announce our third year of our GetLiving Campaign. GetLiving is designed to battle distractive and destructive habits caused by our cell phones.
Our Engagement Board, comprised of student leaders from around the country, put together twelve months of habit-forming actions that can help you and your students take control of your virtual lives–and not the other way around. Ending distracted driving will always be our primary goal, and we believe that, in order to do so, we have to tackle the root cause of distracted driving: digital dependence. Dependence on our devices is an epidemic, and distracted driving is its deadliest symptom. We hope that, through GetLiving, we can reshape our relationships with our devices both in and out of the car to live safer, healthier, happier lives.
Please take a look at what’s planned for 2021 to help you GetLiving. For each month, there is an event specifically tailored to student groups, such as SADD chapters so it’s easy to GetLiving with a squad. If you have a different idea or would like to take more creative control over the monthly events, that’s awesome! We’d love to hear about what you’re up to! We’ll send out updates every month with more details about what the next month has in store. They will contain ‘lesson plans’ for the events below as well as fun graphics and images to share online or post around school.
As always, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or comments. We can’t wait to #GetLiving with you in 2021!

Is your school or non-profit community organization ready to start a SADD chapter? Get started today! It’s simple, and the annual membership fee has been waived!
Chapters must update their information and pay the fee each year!
To start a SADD chapter:
- First, ask about the process at your school to start a school club/activity. SADD chapters function as school clubs/activities. Some schools have a formal approval process for starting a new club, which can vary from school to school, so first find out what’s required.
- Find an Advisor. Schools require a faculty or staff member to serve as the sponsor of a school club. This will be your SADD Advisor and can be teachers, counselors, coaches, secretaries, or any staff member.
- Register your chapter. All SADD chapters must register with the Portal. Registration is $5 and takes just a few minutes online. You will receive a confirmation email with everything you need to get started.
- Chapter Name. Use SADD in the chapter name, after your school or organization name. Example: “Nashoba Valley High SADD” or “North YMCA SADD” are acceptable.
