Thanks Michelle and Amelia for your inspiring and helpful work.
The following is a letter from Amelia, an assistant girl scout troop leader. “I wanted to give you some positive feedback on your Addiction Resources page! Our troop is currently working on the DEA Red Ribbon Patch and the resources on your page helped us a bunch! We encouraged the parents to work with the girls at home to make sure we stay on track. I’ve been putting together a list of reading materials and activities they can do from home for the DEA Red Ribbon Patch. Your page led us to some great drug prevention and alcohol awareness websites to check out, so the girls and I wanted to make sure we thanked you 🙂 I was also hoping you could include a suggestion from our troop, if it’s not too much trouble? I asked the girls to send me any websites they thought were noteworthy; one of the girls, Michelle, found this drunk driving guide that I was very impressed with! The statistic were shocking and the ‘Risks and Consequences of Drunk Driving’ section provides a realistic overview of the price you pay for driving under the influence. This is it…” https://www.newjerseycriminallawattorney.com/legal-articles-information/drunk-driving-criminals-stats-risks-and-consequences/
