Turn Off Our Phones for One Day in May

Yesterday I discovered this site called Promise or Pay which helps people to keep their promises by encouraging them to wager money for charity. This month they've got this awesome campaign going on called #POPMAY where by turning off your phone for one day you can help students in Africa receive free internet access and computer classes!

Personally, I think we could all use a break from our phones, but what makes this break even better is that you have the chance to help students gain the necessary tools and skills they need to gain a great education & better opportunities.

I thought it was pretty cool, so I'll be doing the challenge tomorrow. If you want to participate, consider joining me at http://promiseorpay.com!
