MADD

  1. 1. By: VinaMelara<br />October 18,2010<br />
  2. 2. MothersAgainst <br />Drunk Driving<br />
  3. 3. ABOUT THE FOUNDATION<br />Twenty-five years ago, a heart broken mother made a pledge in her deceased daughter’s bedroom. <br /> She would do something about the outrage of drunk driving—a decision that quickly inspired a handful of grieving, determined mothers to join in the fight. <br />And though united in cause, they had no office, no money and no clout. In fact, all they had was sorrow, pluck and a picture of a pretty, 13-year-old girl killed by a drunk driver. Yet they initiated one of the great grassroots successes in American history. n They were as their name suggests: MADD. <br />
  4. 4. MISSION<br />TO AID THE VICTIMS OF CRIMES PERFORMED BY INDIVIDUALS DRIVE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL OR DRUGS, TO AID THE FAMILIES OF SUCH VICTIMS AND TO INCREASE PUBLIC AWARENESS OF THE PROBLEM OF DRINKING AND DRUGGED DRIVING.<br />
  5. 5. Program and Goal<br />Mothers against Drunk Driving (MADD) <br />make significant progress <br />on their mission to stop <br />drunk driving, serve the victims <br />of this violent crime and prevent<br /> under-age drinking. They are very <br />grateful for everyone's support, <br />and with sustained commitment,<br />they will be able to do more <br />to save lives and help victims <br />impacted by drunk driving.<br />
  6. 6. My personal connection<br />I have personally seen the effects of alcohol in many families, even mine. Twenty years ago my cousin was coming from the beach in the country of El Salvador and he got into a horrible car accident he had taken some drinks. He lost control of his car on a curve and he was ejected from it and died. He did not crashed with anyone else and no one else got injured, but I could have been in that accident as well. That morning he had offered to take me out with him and I had said no. <br />

  8. 8. Need in the Community<br />Since their beginning, MADD has helped save more than 300,000 lives. While they are proud of their achievements, and salientamount of lives saved, they realize there is much more to be done. Last year, nearly 12,000people lost their lives in drunk driving crashes, and another half million were injured. <br />
  9. 9. INPUT<br />They also realize that their continued success depends on their shared passion and partnerships with key community partners in law enforcement just legislatures, schools, volunteer, donors, and all our other MADD advocates.<br />
  10. 10. Problem in the Community<br /> Until we stop drunk driving, our lives and the futures of those we love are vulnerable. <br />
  11. 11. OUTPUT<br />MADD advocatesincreased law enforcement, ignition interlocks to prevent repeat offenders from driving, and grassroots supports from caring people like you.<br />
  12. 12. Why I chose to help this cause<br />It is so easy to explicate the reason why I chose to help this cause. As a mother, wife, sister and friend I would hate to loose anyone I love, due to wreck less driving and careless behavior all due to drinking under the influence. <br />
