During the last several years, FamilyLife has exhorted families to fast from television during August. In 2002, we created static clings as creative reminders. These vinyl images affix to your television screen as a reminder to keep the TV off.
I created fifty TV-free ideas that were posted on our website and delivered in a daily email to subscribers.
Broadcasts during July recruited families to pledge their commitment to turn off the TV.
In 2003, we expanded the ideas and published them in Fifty Nights of Family Fun. This book has had a successful run at retail and was picked up by Wal-Mart.
FamilyLife presented the plan here.
