My heart aches for the family. I text and drive and am going to stop. I took the pledge! I am also interested in getting those bands. If anyone has info on how I can obtain them please let me know. Please stop texting and driving. I didn't realize 11 people die a day due to texting accidents! Let's all make a change!

Im from Waco, Tx and remember hearing about alex's accident when it happened. As many as 11 deaths happened everyday due to texting and driving. Thats 11 too many. I today pledge never to text or talk on the phone while I drive and promise to help spread the word. To alex's sister and parents. Continue to hold your heads high and I thank you for all yall do. Thank yall for turning something so tragic into something so inspirational. May God bless yall =)

I'm really sorry fir the death of alex. I'm sure she was an amazing girl. I'm trying my best to get the word out through facebook. It must be really hard to have found out that alex died because of texting!!! So guys keep that quote in mind B.U.S.T (Buckle Up & Stop Texting) and where can I get one of those thumb rings?

Your website isn't letting me place an order for the thumb bands. Is there another way I can order some. I always text and drive, and figured something so horrible would never happen to me. You have inspired me and my boyfriend to not pick up our phones in the car. Thank you so much!

I just wanted you to know that I was moved by your story and was so shooken up that I couldn't sleep, so I decided to create an event on facebook and invite as many friends as possible. You can read what I posted below, which also included a link to your website. When I saw you on Extreme Home Makeover, you seemed so strong in the midst of your grief and I really admire how positively you are dealing with your situation. I am sure that God is smiling down on you. God bless and you are all in my prayers.

Did you know that every day, 11 people die while texting and driving? 17-year-old Alex Brown never showed up for school that morning when she decided to text and drive. She left behind her mom, dad, and 12-year-old sister who are dedicated to spreading the message about the dangers of texting and driving through the Alex Brown Foundation. Alex was a beautiful vibrant young girl who spread love to everyone that she met, and she would want her death to make a difference in the world. No one else should have to die in such a senseless manner. Make a pledge today to not text and drive and spread the message!
