Dear Friend,

Your support for MADD Canada – your personal effort – can make a difference.

In fact, when you combine your effort with that of other MADD Canada supporters, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish. It is people like you that ensure we make important strides – in the classroom, in the courtroom, in parliament, in the fight against impaired driving.

Please take this opportunity now to give your support to MADD Canada. Your gift today will give all of us more achievements to celebrate in 2018.

The personal effort of all our donors had a positive impact on our roads and in many hearts and lives last year. It was because of this combined effort that…

  • We increased the number of presentations of our School Assembly Program by 10% — giving more students the opportunity to learn about the risks and consequences of impaired driving. With your support, our goal is to increase the number by 11% in 2018.
  • We launched our Elementary School Mobile Experiential Education Program. Our new mobile classroom welcomes up to 200 students in Grades 4-6 a day, giving them the chance to participate in an interactive presentation about the risks of experimenting with drugs and/or alcohol. With you by our side, we hope to expand the number of schools we visit in 2018.
  • Campaign 911 continues to be a successful awareness program as more and more we’re seeing reports of impaired drivers being taken off the road thanks to public tips to police and 911. In 2017, we had over 1,200 road signs and close to 1,000 waterway signs across Canada and with your support we plan to increase the number of signs this year, bringing even more awareness and attention to the issue of impaired driving.
  • We made the issue of drug impaired driving a key area of focus through meetings with elected officials, discussions in the media and public service announcements. We need your help to continue our efforts in 2018 to push for proven solutions to the growing drug-impaired driving crisis.
  • We were there for 20,000 victims and survivors through our Victim Services in 2017. These people received comfort and support because of the combined care and effort of our donors.

Please help us help others by donating today at the beginning of the year when it will make the biggest impact.

Your personal effort to stop impaired driving can make a difference – to the youth we educate about the dangers of impaired driving… to the thousands of victims/survivors who find solace and hope with one phone call… to all Canadians, all families, who travel our roads.

I wish you and your family a safe and happy New Year.
