Partnership for Drug-free Kids
 Dear Joseph:

St. Patrick's Day is a holiday known for good music, delicious food and fun.And excess drinking. Your kids are watching – or they could be participating.

But we are here to help! Donate now to prevent teen alcohol abuse.

Contrary to popular belief, kids do listen to their parents. What you say and how you act matters! Holidays like St. Patty's Day are a great opportunity to talk with your teen about alcohol and begin shaping healthier behaviors.

Remember to: 
  • Set clear expectations about avoiding alcohol - and remind them of the risks of underage drinking
  • Appeal to their self-worth by letting them know that they have a lot going for them and don’t need alcohol to have a good time
  • Be upfront and open about any family history of alcoholism or substance abuse
  • Celebrate safely with family by watching parades, making green pancakes and smoothies, or listening to traditional Irish music

We are empowering teens to avoid alcohol and drugs every day with Above the Influence, our youth-serving program that reaches over 1.6 million teensthrough social media and community-based partnerships.
Your support of just $20 will help us reach over 100 more teens.

We can't just wish on a four leaf clover that our kids will make good decisions about drugs and alcohol. Your donation today provides essential support to teens, so that they avoid the unhealthy shenanigans of St. Patty's Day.
