Sept 9 is FASD Awareness Day!

September 9th is FASD Awareness Day. (09/09 for going nine months alcohol free) We need your help to share this information throughout the world. The NJ Coalition for Prevention of Developmental Disabilities of The Arc of NJ, along with several national organizations will be using Twitter to get our message out about FASD. Please join us by adding the hash tag #FASD to your tweets on September 9. Placing a # in front of a subject is a message to Twitter and they begin counting how many times that subject is used. Our goal is to have #FASD in Twitter’s top ten list on September 9.

Remembe that last year 40,000 children were born with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Alcohol & Pregnancy DON’T mix.
