Kevin Jonas will kick off the tour by designating best bud and security guard Big Rob as his in-car DSGN8D TXTR.
“Everyone is busy during the holidays and we all depend on our phones to keep in touch while on the go,” said Jonas. “Sending a text isn’t worth risking your life or the lives of others. Having a DSGN8D TXTR to text on your behalf lets you focus on driving. In return, we can protect our friends and family by offering to take their phone when they drive.”
Those who can’t attend an event can join their favorite celebrities by registering their DSGN8D TXTR online and uploading photos at facebook.com/XtheTXT. Participants can check out other DSGN8D TXTRs in their area and track the progress of registering 25,000 DSGN8D TXTRs across the country.
“Especially during the holiday season, we want to stay in touch with those we love, and Allstate wants to make sure that all of us do so safely. Choosing a loved one to serve as your DSGN8D TXTR while you’re driving is one way to do so,” said Joan Walker, senior vice president of corporate relations at Allstate. “Allstate continues to advocate for responsible personal behaviors, such as not texting while driving, as well as for stronger distracted driving and graduated driver licensing laws, like the STANDUP Act, to help make our roads safer for everyone.”
Jordin Sparks, Meaghan Martin, Honor Society, Mateo and Big Rob, along with their DSGN8D TXTRs have joined Jonas in supporting the effort by registering online. They will also make appearances in select markets during the national tour.
