Sign up today for 2011 Media Fast: Screen-Free Week
How can you hear the voice of God with the TV on so loud?
Americans spend 8.5 hours a day absorbing media from TV, computers, phones, and video games. Children ages 8-18 watch 4.5 hours of television a day, seeing more than 25,000 commercial messages before they even start school.
This year, April 18-24, the interfaith So We Might See Coalition is organizing a week-long Media Fast: Screen-Free Week to celebrate activities that reconnect us with nature, art, reading, and the world around us.
Pledge to hold a Media Fast within your own family, class, neighborhood, house of worship, or other organization. Do a complete Media Fast ... or just turn off the TV after school ... limit videogames ... it's up to you.
