A high-tech, high-energy performance that educates teens and twenties about the benefits of remaining abstinent until marriage and the dangers of promiscuous behavior.
The Silver Ring Thing is the fastest growing abstinence program in the United States and is rapidly gaining international recognition for its relevant and effective abstinence message. Over tens of thousands of teens and twenties have joined this movement and are wearing rings all over the United States, Southern Africa, and the United Kingdom, and Silver Ring Thing is now coming to Santa Barbara! In California 7,794 have attended a Silver Ring Thing event and 4,580 are wearing rings. The Silver Ring Thing presentation appeals to the youth of today, inspiring them with the message that they are "worth waiting for." Through messages of forgiveness and new beginnings, the program also reaches out to teens that have already become sexually active and offers an opportunity to "start over."
The Silver Ring Thing's mission is to motivate, educate, support, and transform generations of people to embrace a lifestyle of sexual abstinence. With high-tech shows and extensive follow up programs, the Silver Ring Thing aims to have abstinence become the worldwide norm, rather than the exception, in the 21st century.
