"Hello, my name is Jacob Hays, and I recently lost my sister in a roll over accident, where she was ejected. By God's grace her good friend Maddie was spared but also was ejected. Neither of them were wearing seat belts and friends and family have been trying to raise seat belt awareness by starting a seat belt selfie movement on Facebook and hash-tagging "For Sarah." Her friend Troy started the movement and since it has gone as far as Washington, Arizona and Texas. Since the accident I have had multiple well-wishers offering condolences who had suffered similar losses where a seat belt could have saved a life. This movement is to try to help prevent the needless loss of lives. We hope that people will take this to heart and wear their seat belt regularly so that this tragedy can be prevented from happening to anyone else. If at all possible we ask that you can take a picture of yourself in a seat belt and #FORSARAH to spread the work. Thank you."
