Evite®, the leading digital service for bringing people together, and Common Sense Media, the leading independent nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids thrive in a world of media and technology, today challenged the public to take the #DeviceFreeDinner pledge as part of their New Year’s resolutions. The pledge underscores the benefits of device-free gatherings.
Those who take the pledge will be entered in Evite’s “Device-Free Dinner” sweepstakes for a chance to win a $200 gift card for meals.

The two companies also teamed up to provide content around for device-free events. Evite has also designed device-free themed digital invitations, and developed content about device-free gatherings.
“Since Common Sense Media first launched the #DeviceFreeDinner campaign, the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said James P. Steyer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Common Sense Media. “Research confirms the importance of family dinner for kids, including better vocabularies, fewer behavior problems, less substance abuse, and more.”
“The New Year is the perfect time to commit to new habits, including spending time with loved ones face-to-face without distraction,” said Victor Cho, Chief Executive Officer of Evite. “Evite is excited to help our users enjoy the benefits of device-free gatherings.”
