SO, if you tuned in to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to see [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] – you were probably over-whelmed  not only by the Bieber Fever, but by the Brown family, and the charity they started in memory of their daughter Alex who was killed in a  texting and driving accident.

Tons of you were asking for more info so here you go!

Sure the Almighty O (Oprah) warned us about the dangers of texting and driving – but to actually see a family who lost someone they loved to it – and how it affected them, really hit home for lots of us!

The Brown family turned their tragedy in to something positive by starting: R.A.B ~ Remember Alex Brown, a foundation that tells her story to educate and hopefully save lives.

To take the pledge to not text and drive click here:

R.A.B : Remember Alex Brown Pledge

Be Safe! You’re all irreplaceable to us! ;)

    I was deeply moved by the Brown family’s loss & situation. I have 2 beautiful daughters of my own. My oldest is 19yrs & I always tell her not to text & drive. My youngest is 15yrs & just learning to drive as I will also drill into her not to text & drive. There’s nothing more important than our lives or others & no words that can’t wait till they are done driving. I’m sorry it takes the loss of someone very special to help others realize the dangers of being distracted driving. My heart goes out to the Brown family.

  • Rena surratt

    This is SAD… I dont even own a cell phone. I get so mad when I sitting at a red light and count the people TEXTING or running their mouth on a cell phone. I followed a girl through a scool zone she didnt even look up or even do the speed limit. Its a shame Its not a world wide law……

  • Nicci Cornett

    I watched your story on Extreme Makeover Home Edition and it really touched my heart. It broke my heart, and it filled my heart with happiness to watch your family move on after such a devastating tragedy.I am a mom of 2 young kids, ages 8 & 9, and I just don’t know how you do it . You are an amazing family….all the best to all of you. By the way I am signing the pledge and will encourage everyone I know to do the same. God Bless Alex and God Bless all of you !

  • Beth Mumaw

    I live in Madison, Alabama and have wanted to promote not texting while driving. If there is a way for our city to become involved please let me know. I am all about implementing a law to stop this.

  • Ruth Askins

    I am the mother of Taylor Leaptrot and as we both watched Extreme Makeover we both were truly touched. She is a 9 yr old who is very loving and very sensitive to others. She wanted to sign the pledge eventhough she was not old enough to do so. Tears flowed down my face as I watched the hurt that has overcome your life, and you are doing a wonderful thing and I too took the pledge to not text and drive. I don’t even like talking on the cell phone when I am driving. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

  • Cindy Misemer

    This is a choice all of us Teens make. My brother text and drives. We go through stop signs and he doesn’t care. Its very hard, I chose not to drive with him, unless its a absolute have to. He is someone that is, this will be my way. He is leaving for basic June 15 and I am hopeing he makes it that long to live out his dream in the military. I will take this pledge for many reasons. I cried and cried while watching Extream Makeover. I have a little sister that is 14 and she’s living her dream of being a cheerleader. Me and her are unseperable! We leave notes and things for eachother and to wake up to not knowing thats the last message i’ll see from her, would kill me. I love my sister, I am a hudge “go go with friends” junkie. I would not want to wake up one day and see that my best friend(s) have been killed from a car wreck. I am going to be sixteen in two weeks and when I go car shopping I have a budget. My mom says everyone wrecks there first car in some way. I will admit right now, it will not be because I am texting and driving! I don’t care if its on our back country rds or not! I love my family, friends, and peers. I will not want that hurt, so I will not cause it for anybody else either! Thank you Alex Brown for being a big stand in this Country! You are my idol…here or there! Hope to meet you one day!:) God Bless!
