Dear Friend,

So often in the various correspondences we send out, horrific statistics are included such as: On average, every day in Canada, up to 4 driving deaths and 175 injuries involve alcohol and/or drugs.

But what is most devastating is that these aren’t just stats – these are real people – moms, dads, husbands, wives, children. And the victims and survivors of impaired driving need to have a safe place to share their grief.

Your gift today will help them find this place at the National Candlelight Vigil of Hope and Remembrance.

Victims/survivors attend the Vigil at no cost to themselves. We need your help today to make sure they can come to feel the warmth and support of those sharing in their grief. People like Nancy who tragically lost her husband Doug, and whose daughter Emily was seriously injured…

“To be in the company of so many people who have the tragic commonality of losing a loved one through the senseless violence of impaired driving was a powerful and very moving experience. I get chills thinking of it.”

Or Shauna who, heartbreakingly, lost her son Cody…

“The Candlelight Vigil is the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremony that we have attended. Here we have shared with others who have sadly walked the same path as we are walking. I can’t put it adequately into words how grateful my husband and I are to have our son remembered with such honour and respect.”

Please donate today to let victims/survivors know you see them as more than just a statistic – you see them as people just like yourself. Thank you.

All the best to you and yours,

Andy Murie
