To save the lives of our young people through an educational program, geared Not only for them but to the public as well, concerning the inherent dangers of alcohol abuse.
1) To educate the public about the effect of alcohol on the human body, both physically and mentally, showing statistics that support these effects.
2) Use of flyers and other audio-visual aids to show the dangers of alcohol abuse.
3) Statistics showing the true costs of drinking and driving: Over $250 Billion dollars annually.
HOW TO ACHIEVE THIS:
Through the use of audio-visual aids, sharing personal stories of how alcohol
Has altered our lives dramatically, and distribute statistics on how many lives are cut short due to the use of Alcohol and drugs each year. There is a price we all must pay, both as users and non-users of alcohol, by raising the prices on the things we can not do without such as: higher Doctor bills and Insurance rates. We hope to raise the awareness of the community through the use of this material. And hopefully enforce the saying " THINK BEFORE YOU DRINK " then they can decide if it's worth drinking even one.
Craig W. Hughes Sr. and many of our members have had personal experiences
With alcohol, that has created very difficult physical and emotional tragedies within our lives. These Experiences have not only affected us as individuals but has scarred our families and community as well.
MAKING THE CHANGE:
We are now making arrangements to take our message into the schools of our Community. Hopefully changing the devastating effects of alcohol on our children. We are also coordinating our efforts with other outreach programs in the community. Together we can make the THINK BEFORE YOU DRINK FOUNDATION work for the community, and save the precious lives of our young and old alike.
THE LIFE YOU HELP SAVE, MAY BE YOUR OWN.
