Oct. 2: One Million Unplugging Hours

Pledge to Disconnect on Sunday Oct. 2nd!

Imagine finishing that bestseller you started in June . . . or finally teaching your child to ride a bicycle. How about trying out that new recipe . . . or going for a walk with a friend?  Just think of the things you could do with even one extra hour!

Unplug & Reconnect is asking people to pledge part of their day, all day, just a few hours, or even just one hour, on Sunday, Oct. 2, unplugged from technology so that they reconnect with the people and events that are important to them. The goal is to raise 1,000,000 Unplugging hours on that one day.

Registering your hours is easy. Visit our registration page and complete our simple registration form. While you’re at it, ask your family and friends to join you as you unplug from technology.

Unplug and Reconnect has partnered with Ohr Naava, a Brooklyn based Jewish women’s organization and the originator of the ‘Day To Disconnect’ campaign, to create awareness of our current state of digital overload and to find a balance between our technology-laden, multi tasking selves and our creative, emotional and spiritual needs, to benefit from one while sustaining the other.

If you need further inspiration, check out the video below. Produced by Ohr Naava, it holds universal appeal to anyone who has found themselves trapped by technology.

    So scary to think about! Guess this means I really need to commit to doing it, right?

    I think this is a great idea! I unplug almost every weekend. We need to connect face to face more. It would be a much different world.
