Evite and Common Sense Media Partner to Promote Device-Free Gatherings

Press Release – LOS ANGELES and SAN FRANCISCO (March 15, 2017) – Evite, the leading digital service for bringing people together, and Common Sense Media, the leading nonprofit organization helping kids thrive in a world of media and technology, today announced a partnership to promote the importance and benefits of device-free gatherings with family and friends.

Evite and Common Sense Media have launched a joint landing page at www.evite.com/c/commonsensemedia which provides site users with practical ideas, advice and tools for implementing device-free events. Evite has designed and added to its service a series of digital invitations with a device-free theme, including dinner parties, potlucks, kids sleepovers and more. In addition, Evite has developed original video content for users of the joint landing page with tips for hosting device-free gatherings.

As part of the partnership, Evite is also helping to promote Common Sense Medias national #DeviceFreeDinner campaign launched last fall.

“Research confirms the importance of family dinner for kids, including better vocabularies, fewer behavior problems, less substance abuse, and more,” said Amy Guggenheim Shenkan, President and Chief Operating Officer of Common Sense. “Beyond that, families can benefit from the quality time and face-to-face conversation that a device-free dinner offers, and the feedback we have received from parents and kids echoes that sentiment. We are excited to team up with the event experts at Evite to share the benefits of device-free gatherings with an even larger audience.”

“Evite exists to bring people together face to face, and this partnership with Common Sense Media reinforces the value of meaningful connections with loved ones,” said Victor Cho, Chief Executive Officer of Evite. “Technology plays an important role in our lives, but it can also be isolating. Were encouraging our users to explore device-free events in their own lives, and maybe even make it the new normal for dinner and beyond.”
