This is going to be a very in depth thing, though the day that it happens may not seem that hard to set up, but the ideas behind the event are important. It starts with myself, and any other recruits that I have helping myself in the cafeteria of my school, hosting 3500 students of more. You walk into the doorway of the cafeteria, or any of them being that there are numerous, and immediately you look down and see 16 paper-cut outs of bodies taped to the ground, representing the 16 teenagers that die everyday from automobile related accidents. They all lead to a long table infront of a prominent wall of the cafeteria. Each body, lined up and spaced to the table, will have a different fact on it. Each fact will relay a stronger and stronger emotion to the reader, in other words will will have a greater meaning than the one before, until the reader ultimately arrives at the table where myself and a couple others will be sitting, and sees the giant poster behind the table saying "I will not become a statistic". The table will be covered in pins, wristbands, bumper-stickers and window clings, and other parafenalia, I dont know if that is spelled right, that represents KTD. Myself and my co-workers will relay the message of KTD and how the students can sign up at KTD.com to pledge their safe driving, but the main purpose of the event is the friend pledge sign-up. On the sign that says "I will not become a statistic" there will a lot of other space, a lot, for groups of friends to sign, or even just individuals. Signing the poster is a pledge to be a safe driver for your friends and your family. But we will encourage signing in groups of friends because of the great impact friendships have on individuals during highschool. It is a simple promise declaring that if you care about your life, your friends or your family, you will be a safe driver, and not become one of the 16 teenagers that dies everyday. To entice students to start signing, the first 15 students from every lunch period to sign the poster will recieve a free t-shirt with a KTD emblem, and Text that says "I will not become a statistic". We will pass out free key chains, and wristbands, etc. to all. This is where the 500 dollars would be needed. The tshirts would be 500 dollars for about 50-60 tshirts, somewhere in that ballpark, and the more tshirts I could get the better, highschoolers like t-shirts. I have all the other supplies, but I would be ordering the tshirts from customink.com. The only thing that might change about this event, is that I might have to do it outside because so many kids are going outside for lunch because of the weather.
Thank you for your time,
