ITNAmerica declares 2015 the year to give an older person a ride
The need for better senior transportation touches almost every family in America. By 2030, 1 in every 5 Americans will be over 65, and as they age many will find themselves losing abilities needed to drive safely. The answer is parked in driveways from coast to coast.
That's why ITNAmerica declares 2015 the year to give an older person a ride and share your story. Your #sharearide story may result in a personal visit by ITN Founder and President Katherine Freund during her 60-day Storybook Tour cross-country road trip this summer. The ITN Storybook Tour begins June 16th (the 20th anniversary of the first ITN ride) and will stop in at least two dozen cities from coast to coast to raise awareness of senior transportation.
Share a ride and share your story:
- Give an older person a ride, take a selfie of you, your rider, or both of you, and post it on ITNAmerica's facebook page, or on your preferred social media platform using the hashtag #sharearide
- If you can't give a ride, donate $20 to ITNAmerica or your local ITN affiliate to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our first ride in 1995
- Challenge your friends to also give an older person a ride or donate $20 to ITNAmerica or your local ITN affiliate
- Or … do all three!
