Ryder is officially out of school by the end of this week, and I am ready to embrace every minute of our summer vacation to the fullest this year. Being bound by no schedules, it will be a couple of months to kick back, with some fun travel plans on the horizon! With all this travel, lots of planning and organization is required before we hit the road. In addition to packing for five, we need to board the dogs, have mail and packages picked up daily, and a fish to feed. We are fortunate enough to have family living nearby who can keep the dogs, but we usually need to hire a neighborhood sitter to tend to the rest.
I recently learned about the AT&T Digital Life, and I am completely blown away. AT&T Digital Life is a home security that allows you to stay connected to your home from almost anywhere, with 24/7 professionally monitored home security and automation from your smartphone, tablet, or computer. You can set your alarm, check in on the kids or pets, and adjust the thermostat, offering you more freedom, convenience, and flexibility than ever before. I was so impressed with the system, we gave my Dad a package for Father’s Day.
AT&T Digital Life not only protects homes, but it’s helping to build them. AT&T and Habitat for Humanity are continuing their collaboration to rebuild and revitalize communities around the U.S. This effort kicked off in Los Angeles last month with local AT&T employee volunteers helping build a Habitat home, in partnership with a low-income family. AT&T Digital Life is planning to support local builds in five cities across the country including Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami and Newark. These builds will take place throughout the month of June as AT&T Digital Life continues to give back and support local communities.
To amplify these efforts, AT&T will donate $150,000 to support Habitat for Humanity’s mission. Habitat for Humanity International’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Anchored by the conviction that housing provides a critical foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty, Habitat has helped more than 4 million people construct, rehabilitate or preserve homes since 1976. Habitat also advocates to improve access to decent and affordable shelter and supports a variety of funding models that enable families with limited resources to make needed improvements on their homes as their time and resources allow.
Join me tomorrow, June 24 at 12pm EST, for a twitter chat with great prizes, where we will be discussing family travel, protecting your home while you are away, and AT&T Digital Life’s partnership with Habitat For Humanity. No RSVP required, follow the hashtag #ATTDigitalLife
