A Time To Give Thanks

November signifies a time of gratitude for all things. As we gather with our families for delicious dinners prepared with the best trimmings, we reflect deeply on what truly means the most to us and express gratitude for those things.

After 35 years of providing families with the tools to help kids make healthy choices, I am extremely thankful for the success of Informed Families. This year, I have plenty to be thankful for.

I am thankful for the hard-working staff of Informed Families for working diligently to ensure that families and children are united to combat the social pressures of underage drinking and illegal drug use.

I am thankful for an active Board of Trustees, who altruistically dedicates their time to supporting our mission and achieving our vision.  

I am thankful for all the schools, families, communities, law enforcement agencies, coalitions, non-profit organizations, volunteers, religious institutions and governmental organizations that provide unity for a drug-free world.

I am thankful for all of our devoted grantors, donors and sponsors, those who support our prevention programs, those who make our annual Joe's Dinner a success and most recently, those who helped us raise close to $3,000 during Give Miami Day! I am grateful for having the opportunity to recognize Ron Shuffield of EWM Realty International for his service to Informed Families and our mission of helping kids grow up safe, healthy and drug free at a National Philanthropy Day luncheon. With supporters like all of you, Informed Families will continue to leave a drug-free legacy for the next 35 years. 

I am thankful for the millions of people who have participated in the Florida and the National Red Ribbon Campaign throughout the years; you are the critical mass required to make a global change!

Finally, I am thankful that you are visiting our website and reading this blog because that tiny action can create a ripple effect for a positive future for our children.
