Text Kills® Partners With Coca-Cola Bottling, Sempra Energy, SDG&E, Capistrano Volkswagen, Future Business Leaders of America, K-Jam Summer Heat Wave Concert, and More
San Clemente, Calif - Text Kills®, a community outreach organization that since 2010 has traveled the country to spread awareness about the dangers and hazards of distracted driving and text-bullying, is pleased to announce its participation in various events this summer. Text Kills® is partnering with a number of companies and organizations, including Sempra Energy (SRE), Capistrano Volkswagen, Coca-Cola Bottling, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), Kaleidoscope Center, Great Opportunities, and the Future Business Leaders of America to bring its outreach and educational information to a wide summer audience.
Most recently, Text Kills® has received an invitation from Coca-Cola Bottling in Orange, California to educate their employees during the company’s safety stand down this summer. In addition, the outreach organization has participated in similar events for Sempra Energy and SDG&E, with whom they are an official safety partner. Capistrano Volkswagen will also be hosting the Text Kills® Bus for an entire week in July and encouraging visitors to sign it and take the pledge not to text while driving (TWD), while participating in the dealership’s week long re-grand opening.
In addition, Text Kills® Founder Wayne Irving II and Bully Buster USA founder Ryan Foland have committed to speak at the Future Business Leaders of America National Leadership Conference June 23 in Anaheim, California. Irving, who is also CEO of both Monster Arts, Inc. (MONT), as well as Iconosys, Inc., and Foland, who serves as COO of Iconosys, will be presenting their “2013 Business Toolbox,” which was featured earlier this year in the Orange County Register Metro Magazine. They will be discussing various business-related topics in a workshop format, as well as the importance of community outreach and supporting positive, social causes in the business world.
Later this summer, the third installment of Text Kills®’ acclaimed "K-Jam Concert Series" titled: `Summer Heat Wave` will be held September 9 at Kaleidoscope Center in Mission Viejo, California. The K-Jam event will feature performances by popular local bands and provides a fun, positive environment for teens and their families. Like the original K-Jam concert this past November and the K-Jam Wild Hearts event this past February, Summer Heat Wave will boast many community and corporate sponsors, including Monster Arts (MONT), a public company that owns a 10% stake in Text Kills®’ parent company, Iconosys.
“This is going to be a very exciting and busy summer for Text Kills®,” commented Founder Wayne Irving II. “We’ve got a little bit of everything going on: corporate safety days, outreach events, and even a concert that you won’t want to miss. We here at Text Kills® see every single event as a great opportunity for us to spread awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and to promote the message of personal responsibility and safety.”
Finally, to help kickoff and fund the next stage of their development, Text Kills® is also pleased to announce the launch of its “Kickstarter” program, which will include a complete remodeling of the Text Kills® Bus. The build-out of the Text Kills® Bus will be televised on the Discovery Network’s show, “Outcast Kustoms.” More information about Outcast Kustoms can be found at www.outkastkustoms.com.
