"Make A Promise Day" — May 4th

May The Fourth Be With You!

In Hudson Valley Radio Interview, Matthew Cossolotto Urges Young People to Follow Tony’s Promise Example on Father’s Day — “Promise Your Father You Won’t Drink and Drive”

In an interview this morning on Hudson Valley Radio (http://www.hvradionet.com/goodmorning), Matthew Cossolotto, creator of “Make A Promise Day” (May 4th), encouraged young people to make a heartfelt promise to their fathers on Father’s Day this Sunday.

Cossolotto specifically urged young people to follow the example of “Tony’s Promise” and promise their fathers they will never drink and drive or allow friends to do so.  A promise like that will have real meaning to your Dad, Cossolotto suggested.  During the interview, Cossolotto called attention to the moving “I Promise” video on YouTube  in honor of Anthony (Tony) McColl, who was killed tragically on April 16th by a drunk driver on Highway 148 near Luskville, Quebec (Canada).

Cossolotto said:  “Tony’s Promise offers vivid testimony to the power of making a promise.  It’s an inspiring, healing, heart-centered power that can help turn a terrible tragedy into a positive campaign to save lives and restore hope.  There is something very powerful about publicly declaring “I Promise.”  And there’s no better time to make a promise like this than on Father’s Day.”
