MyRedThumb Day 2017

The date is set for MyRedThumb Day 2017!


National MyRedThumb Day 2017 will be held on Thursday 11th May. 


Once again our goal will be to reduce road traffic casualties by encouraging as many people as possible to stop using their mobile phone whilst driving.


The MyRedThumb Team would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who got behind the campaign last year. We received an unprecedented amount of support from all around the country. Thanks to you we managed to send the message that mobile phones and driving are not a good combination to literally millions of people. 



Thumb Selfie anyone?

If you missed last year's MyRedThumb Day do not despair. MyRed Thumb is a campaign that runs all year round. We still want as many people as possible to paint their thumb red (or any other colour for that matter) to help spread the message 'using a mobile phone when driving is bad news for everyone at any time'. If you need some 'Thumb-selfie' inspiration please check out our gallery.

Please share pictures of your decorated thumb selfies on social media #MyRedThumb.

In the meantime there are loads of things that you can do to spread the My Red Thumb message - here are some ideas. We hope that businesses and social groups get involved . We would love to hear what you have planned.
