Dear Friend, It was a beautiful summer day, but Antonette Wijeratne lay crying in a hospital bed. Her hip, pelvis and some ribs had been fractured; the toes on her right foot dislocated; she had a brain injury as well - she had injuries all over her body. But it wasn't her broken body causing [...]

Help us turn a recipe for disaster into a recipe for hope!

2017/04/10|Categories: Campaigns|

Dear Friend, I have an urgent reason for writing to you today. We have a situation here in Canada that is frankly keeping me up at night. It's a situation that's putting our families, friends and all Canadians at a greater risk on our roads. I'm speaking about drug-impaired driving. We already have high rates [...]

The day is coming…

Dear Friend, The day is coming when there will be no more impaired driving crashes; a day when we no longer need to hold a Candlelight Vigil for victims and survivors of this horrible crime… But until that day comes, we need your help right now so that we are there for grieving people - [...]

Dear Friend, Kim and Dean Hancock will never forget the night their 18-year-old son's voice was silenced, his life ripped from him. They were there when the tragedy happened. They were following DJ's car as he drove home after a hockey try-out. Kim and Dean stopped at a coffee shop then continued on their way [...]

I never thought anything so tragic and senseless could happen to our family.

Dear Friend: I never thought anything so tragic and senseless could happen to our family. But then there was my husband, Terry, watching his son being wheeled quickly to the operating room, leaving a trail of blood behind him. There was the doctor saying, "I'm sorry. There's nothing we could do. Nicholas is gone." That [...]

In the blink of an eye…everything can change.

It was the day before Lily Fisher's birthday. While Lily was out for the day, two of her four kids, Jamie and Nicole, wrapped gifts and put them on the table. They bought flowers and cooked a special dinner. It was going to be a celebration and then, in the blink of an eye, everything [...]

What does summer mean to you?

2016/06/30|Categories: Campaigns|

Dear Friend, Perhaps summer means long sunny days at the beach or cottage. Barbeques and patio time with friends. Family vacations and road trips that stretch on for miles. For most of us, summer means happiness. It used to mean that for Sandra Clements and her family too, but not anymore. Not since her 23-year-old [...]

All we are left with are broken hearts and shattered dreams

Dear Friend, Terry and Patricia Coates had such wonderful dreams for their 27-year-old son and step son, Nicholas. They dreamed of seeing the joy and pride on his face while he stood at the alter waiting for the love of his life, Elizabeth, to join him. They dreamed of holding Nicholas's future children in their [...]

You can be there!

Dear Friend, With your support for MADD Canada you can be there - not for the organization, but for the people who turn to us for help. When one of our members sits across from a devastated family and offers them the emotional support they desperately need - you can be there! When a teen [...]
