#ItCanWait – some distractions are good, others can cost lives!

Some accidents happen, we all know this, but some accidents through acts of sheer stupidity, like texting or holding your phone, (especially to use snapchat or take a selfie) whilst driving is completely unacceptable. 

I understand that many people, including myself, need to take calls if you’re in the car. I always use my Bluetooth hands-free device and set it up before I start driving, and it’s voice activated. 

If you NEED to receive a call whilst in the car and you don’t have a Bluetooth hands-free device, ask yourself; “Can I afford to spend under $200 for a hands-free car kit, or can I afford to live for the rest of my life knowing I caused an accident or even worse, took someone’s life because I was distracted by my phone whilst driving?” 

My job specialises in Distraction. Our services are used every day in hospitals to distract sick kids. They are needed and productive distractions. Being distracted by your phone whilst driving is not needed or productive in any way and could cost you, or someone else, their life.

It’s your call, make good decisions. Driving is a privilege, not a right.

I don’t do this very often, but this video is something that should be shared.

Kicking off our EOFY Appeal: Just a few dollars can support a sick child’s life…

Stephen is 4 and has Acute Lymphatic Leukemia. He also suffers Asthma complications. Combined, these conditions make life at home stressful and difficult, with vigilant monitoring required.

The life of a sick child can be challenging for them and their families in ways we might not even consider – emotionally, practically and financially. TLC for Kids’ RAPID TLC Service supports people through these challenges. This can range from medical and lifestyle equipment to manage life at home, to a day of relaxation and respite for Mum and Dad, to covering the utility bills of a struggling family, to helping fulfil a child’s dream, to assisting families through the bereavement process when tragedy does occur.

Follow the link if you would like to contribute, event a couple of dollars, to the valuable work provided by TLC for Kids, for kids like Stephen.
