FADD has started our DUI prevention activities for Labor Day; Halloween; Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our goal is to make an impact in the lives of 5,000 families with the California FADD chapters. Team FADD has 5,000 portable alcohol breathalyzers to distribute in order to meet our goal of reducing alcohol related crashes on our highways.
The California FADD chapters have a plan to distribute these portable one-time use breathalyzers in and around the communities where FADD chapters are located.
We are asking a tax deductible donation of only $10 per breathalyzer. We are planning to partner with local businesses in order to form partnerships that would benefit the people who live and work in our communities, thus saving lives, and reducing alcohol related fatalities!
Our goal since 1985 is to build relationships and form partnerships in order to have successful DUI and Underage Drinking campaigns throughout the year. This has been our core since the foundation of this nonprofit organization; we can’t do everything; however TOGETHER, we can do more, thus reaching out to people who may headed for trouble!
2016 YOUTH SUMMER OUTREACH (YSO) PROGRAM
FADD Has Designated July as “Underage Drinking Prevention Month”.
Our 8th annual YSO program is collaboration with students. We empower them in order for us to go into the community to raise awareness on the dangers of Underage Drinking during the month of July. This campaign will feature partnerships that reach into our communities to make a positive impact…
Our 2016 goal is to contact 100 high schools and colleges nationwide and have them join us in order to have others involved. Through the demand of the students, we are going forward with this nationally coordinated effort.
Your support is essential for this annual campaign. We’ve already started recruiting for July 2016, to get involved send an email to email@example.com, or by phone at (559)756-1748.
Teenagers make up about 7% of the total driving population in the US, but they are responsible for 20% of all the collisions that take place in the country. For road accidents that result in fatalities, around 14% of them are caused by teenage reckless driving. With these figures in mind, parents of teenagers who drive are becoming more concerned about the safety of their children on the road. Here are a number of websites that provide information and tips on safe teen driving. (Click here for more information.)
MOMENTS OF IMPACT YOUTH AWARENESS PROGRAM
With this program we plan to share a powerful true story of the deadly consequences of drinking and driving to youth and adults throughout California.
If you are an educator, member of the Parent/Teachers Association (PTA), Youth Pastor, business owner, Director of any program, or another non profit organization, and you’d like us to come in and show this film to your group, we would love to go over the details in order to set up a meeting, and set a date for us to go in and share it with you.
We are searching for donations and sponsors for us to have another successful campaign with the youth.
To schedule our staff for a showing to your group, you may call (559)756-1748; or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a viewing.
Maurice Johnson, living in Dallas, Texas has written a song close to his heart. “With this song “Drive Safe” I want to bring awareness to the youth & adults of the dangers as well as the consequences of being irresponsible and driving under the influence. The song features Dooney “Da Priest,” stated Johnson.

ONE FATAL MISTAKE - DOCUMENTARY
Every 45 minutes someone is killed by a drunk driver, and within that 45 minutes someone’s life is over and the family is forever shattered! One Fatal Mistake is a documentary that shows the impact of the loss of a beloved Grandmother killed by a drunk driver, through the eyes of six of her ten grandchildren ranging between 12-18 years of age.
This documentary reveals how emotionally scared and forever changed these six children are.
The latest number one single from Vince Hatfield,
Through That Glass, is the perfect vehicle to spread the mission
of Fathers Against Drunk Driving (FADD) becoming the official
song for the passionate organization throughout 2011. “We are
excited and honored to be teaming with Vince. What better timing
could we ask for as September marks National Alcohol and Drug
Addiction Recovery Month. I knew when we first heard the song
that its powerful message was a perfect fit for FADD. I look
forward to seeing how the partnership develops,” says FADD
founder Robert Ybarra.
