Over the years, Kartchner promoted the eight-second hug and shared his enthusiasm with more than 500,000 youths and adults across the country, passionately speaking to kids and parents about screen addiction and social media. On Oct. 21, Elizabeth Kartchner shared that her husband – the Utah-based activist who founded the #SavetheKids campaign in 2018 to shed light on his belief that social media is causing teen anxiety, depression and suicide – had died “unexpectedly.”
