Screen Shot 2013-11-26 at 9.34.17 AMIf you’re like me, you’re probably thinking about it and possibly talking about it too.

But The Salvation Army’s Youth Department in the Western Territory is doing something about it.

Concerned about addiction to our handheld BFFs, they’re asking us to ‘fast’ on Thanksgiving Day.

Thankfully, they’re not asking us to give up food, just our electronic devices; cell phones, iPads, and other distraction-causing, person-to-person conversation killers. Let’s enjoy Thanksgiving with our loved ones and engage in some actual chat.

Sign up for the Thanksgiving Fast on their Facebook event page.
