A Day of Rest - October 4, 2008

A Day of Rest (ADOR) was founded in 2008, by Jennifer Sekar, an 8th grade student at Hopkins Jr. High School, Fremont, California, with the support of friends and family.

The main goal of this non-profit organization is to encourage people across continents to take rest, a true rest, for at least one day a year and spend time with friends and families. True rest means, not driving any type of powered vehicle on that day. Our long term goal is to make first Saturday of October of every year to be A Day Of Rest. A True Day Of Rest. This year we are celebrating A Day Of Rest on October 4, 2008.

The near term goal of ADOR is to get at least 1 million families who own and operate powered vehicles normally, to take true rest on October 4, 2008 and get 1 million cars off the road on October 4, 2008.

We could prevent 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide emission in just one day !
