This February Australians are urged to grab a friend, banish the booze altogether and help raise money for vital organisations.
National health and charity campaign FebFast urges all Australians to give up alcohol during February, the shortest month of the year.
“Every year we challenge Australians to go without alcohol in February, but in 2010 we double dare you!” FebFast CEO Fiona Healy said.
“Do it with your best friend, husband, wife, partner, sister, parent, workmates — anyone who will help you get up the guts to give up the grog for a month.”
In 2010, funds raised will go to the Australian Drug Foundation, Youth Substance Abuse Service (VIC), Mater Hospital Adolescent Drug and Alcohol Withdrawal Service (QLD), Ted Noffs Foundation (NSW and the ACT) and FebFast’s grants program for smaller grassroots organisations.
