How you can help honour victims and survivors!

2017/11/08|Categories: Campaigns|

Dear Friend, It's the holiday season and all across Canada people are celebrating. But in some homes there is only darkness. No lights sparkle from the eaves, no gifts wait to be opened. The families inside don't feel much like celebrating. The tragedy of impaired driving has left its mark forever on their shattered hearts. [...]

One can never say it enough…

Dear Friend, During this season of gratitude Canadians everywhere are taking time out of their busy lives to reflect on the many things and people they are grateful for. I'm sure you're immensely thankful for your own family and friends. And with your support for MADD Canada, you can play a key role in making our roads [...]

The crash changed our lives, but you saved our lives!

Dear Friend, A pact is a powerful thing. It can change and sometimes even save lives. Today I hope you'll enter into a potentially lifesaving pact with MADD Canada. In this pact we'll agree to help each other in the fight against impaired driving and be there for the victims and survivors. Survivors like Maia Vezina [...]

And then, in a heartbeat, everything changed!

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!

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…

2017/02/24|Categories: Campaigns|

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 - [...]

Have you made any New Year’s resolutions?

Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Many of us do. The beginning of the year is a good time to focus on improving our lives and making the world a better place. Of course, resolutions can be hard to keep... ...but there is one resolution you can make today that's so easy to keep [...]

You can give a voice to the voiceless…

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 [...]
