DoSomething's New Campaign Takes on Teen Pregnancy
Did you know that the United States has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the western industrialized world? To kick off the summer, DoSomething.org is urging teen girlsand their guy friendsto start thinking about this and about how their lives might change if they were to get pregnant by having them become a 'parent' for a day.
By logging on to dosomething.org/baby or texting BABY to 38383 they can send a text message to a friend alerting them that their phone has been turned into a digital baby that will need their care and attention for 12 hours. Whether demanding feeding time or needing to be changed, the phone baby will alert its owner via notifications that require their attention and effort. After they've made it through the 12 hours, they'll get the option to challenge friends to become parents for a day and also learn more about teen pregnancy. Check out the video starring Snooki to learn more about the campaign.
