PhoneGuard Announces Continued Support for the National Day of Awareness Against Texting & Driving(April 24, 2012)
BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 04/24/12 -- PhoneGuard, Inc., a subsidiary of Options Media Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OPMG) (PINKSHEETS: OPMG), a leading provider of mobile applications software, announced their continued support for the National Day of Awareness (NDA) Against Texting & Driving campaign amid the recent announcement by the festival's producers that the Rock 2 Live music festival, which was scheduled for this Saturday, April 28th at Florida Atlantic University's new stadium in Boca Raton, Florida will be postponed until fall 2012.
BUILDING ON MOMENTUM
As this national phenomenon built up steam, it was decided that the National Day of Awareness event would be marked with a music festival that would provide the attraction for a national fundraiser to benefit education and responsible texting organizations. Pioneering the concept of selling "e-tickets" to the concert event, which provide access to an interactive streaming experience, PhoneGuard oversaw the development of the fundraising system, identifying the concept as a new addition to their business model.
Outreach for the fundraiser and the NDA reached large national and international audiences. The movement received the assistance of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the National Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), Channel One, Clear Channel Radio, School Newspapers Online, Spanish River High School and the Palm Beach County Board of Education. In all, over 10,000 schools and over 20 million students and parents were introduced to the NDA message of responsible texting and driving.
PhoneGuard anticipates that there will be an even greater opportunity to mobilize these supporting groups as schools enter their fundraising season for the 2012-2013 academic years. Additionally, we have developed a much broader coalition of sponsors that may lead to diverse domestic and international marketing opportunities for the Company's products.
CONTINUED SUPPORT AND CAUSE LEADERSHIP
PhoneGuard is making a huge social statement of their philosophy and corporate responsibility to impact the cause. On the NDA, PhoneGuard will offer free downloads of their app, which includes disabling texting and Internet access for a driver of a vehicle exceeding 10 mph with a personal security suite including a panic button. Keith St. Clair, Chairman of PhoneGuard, stated, "PhoneGuard is delighted to be a part of the National Day of Awareness and is pleased to announce that every student and parent nationwide will have access to download the PhoneGuard app free until May 13th. We can't think of a better gift for Moms across the country this Mother's Day." St. Clair added, "Either we do what is right, or we sit on the sidelines. We have chosen to stand with these students, and save the lives of our children, parents and peers."
Additional information about the free PhoneGuard Premium download will be available on the company's website, starting on April 25th.
