Transcript

  • 1. In memory of Cari Lightner and Laura Lambs <br />
  • 2. There are so many youth in America that have become victims of drunk driving. I want to use a monument to commemorate those lives that have been lost too soon due to drunk drivers. <br />As an expecting mother I want to somehow be an active participant in protecting not only my child but all children from danger. In my quest to find social groups that am to protect children, prevent lost of life, and share child loss experiences I came across the none profit group "MADD" or Mothers Against Drunk Driving. <br />
  • 3. MADD was incorporated on September 5, 1980 After Candace Lighter lost her daughter Carri to a hit and run drunk driver.<br />Cindi Lamb joined the fight against drunk driving after her daughter Laura became the youngest quadriplegic when they were hit head on by a drunk driver. <br />Together their mission statement, which continues to guide the organization today, read “The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving is to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.”  <br />Background<br />
  • 4. MADD organization went from a handful of mothers with a mission to stop drunk driving to one of history’s greatest grassroots success stories—and helped save thousands of lives along the way.<br />From its humble beginnings 30 years ago, MADD has evolved into one of the most widely supported and well-liked non-profit organizations in America.<br />To date, MADD’s work has saved nearly 300,000 lives…and counting.<br />History <br />

  • 6. Although I have never lost a loved one to drunk driving my goal is to beapart of the initiative to stop drunk driving all together<br />
  • 7. Project Description<br />The sculpture/monument will be located in front of MADD's headquarters in Houston TX. It will be a fountain comprised of white marble with the sculpture in the center. Its function will be to act as the memorial place for all the victims of drunk driving. The monument will be cut out of a large slab of white marble, and the marble will act as the essence of childhood which is pure and unattained. The sculpture in the center will be given a childlike appeal yet still maintaining the strength of marble. The strength of the marble will not only symbolize the parents strength as mourners dealing with a lost, it will also commemorate the hard, stable, and reliable parent lives that have also been lost to drunk driving. The sculpture will be cast with a fountain so that water can poor from its structure and fall in a body of water in the same manner as the tears of the victims families.<br />
  • 8.
  • 9. Also as an added function, the victims families can go to one of MADD's 29 local branchs, located all over the Untied States, with a picture of their loved ones to be imprinted on a small cooper medallion using a pressed penny souvenir machine. Which can then be mailed to MADD's headquarters or one can visit the headquarters were all the medallions are thrown into the monument forever as a commemoration of a life lost but never forgotten.<br />Benefits<br />

  • 12. The horrible truth about drunk driving is that it can affect anyone at any time. It doesn’t discriminate by gender, race, age or income. And, it’s a crime that’s committed by friends, family members and neighbors, not just “career criminals.” But those facts are also what make drunk driving prevention a cause everyone can support. It’s an issue of public safety— everyone’s safety<br /> -MADD<br />
