We are excited to announce a brand-new campaign at GUIDE called Red Ribbon Year!
Red Ribbon Year kicked off in November 2017 and will run through Red Ribbon Week in October 2018. Between now and then, we are making it our mission to keep the conversation going about why it’s important to be alcohol, tobacco and other drug free – not for just a week, but all the time.
The intention of this campaign is to help individuals and groups across Georgia celebrate being drug free all year long because we know prevention efforts are much more effective when they are continuous and sustained over time.
At the beginning of every month, we will post here with how you can celebrate. You can expect us to highlight national prevention-related cause awareness days, relevant campaigns, events and project ideas.
With your help, we can be all in, all year for prevention across the state of Georgia!
When you participate, share your successes with us by using #RedRibbonYear on social media.
If you have any questions about the campaign, please contact Alexis Cato at email@example.com.
This month we are celebrating National Safety Month!Join us as we celebrate National Safety Month during the month of June. According to the National Safety Council, “observed annually in June, National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities.”
The National Safety Council provides downloadable resources highlighting a different safety topic for each week in June:
