Make a Commitment to Safe and Sober Driving – Get Your Red Ribbon Today!
MADD Canada hosts its 29th annual holiday awareness campaign, Project Red Ribbon, from November 1 to January 3. Our longest-running awareness program, Project Red Ribbon is hosted over the holiday season because it’s a busy time on most social calendars. With holiday parties and celebrations plentiful, the risk for impaired driving is especially high. MADD Canada’s red ribbon is a small but powerful symbol of the wearer’s commitment to sober driving. Throughout November and December, MADD Canada Chapters and Community Leaders will distribute millions of ribbons for Canadians to wear and display as a reminder to:
Never drive impaired or ride with an impaired driver.
Plan ahead if you’re going to be drinking. Take a cab or bus, arrange a designated driver or plan to stay over.
Call 911 you see a driver you suspect is impaired. For information on the signs of an impaired driver and what to do, visit our Campaign 911 page.
The red ribbon also serves as a poignant tribute to the hundreds of victims killed and thousands of victims injured each year in impairment-related crashes. Red ribbons are available through the MADD Canada web site, Chapters and Community Leaders, Allstate Canada offices across the country and participating sponsor outlets.
MADD Canada salutes our 2016 Project Red Ribbon National Sponsors whose dedication and support help us reach every neighbourhood across the country in our mission to stop impaired driving and to support victims of this violent crime.
