Lose the booze
THIS October, Life Education is urging Aussies to say no and lose the booze for 31 days and take part in “Ocsober”.
Ocsober has support from Queensland-based Ocsober ambassadors, TV personality Natalie Gruzlewski, former State of Origin players Petro Civoniceva and Shaun Berrigan, Olympians Tatiana Grigorieva, Julie McDonald and Paul Gonzalez, cricket legend Matt Hayden, actress Brooke Nichole Lee and Brisbane Bandits players Tristan Crawford and Matt Timms.
Michael Fawsitt, CEO of Life Education Queensland, said alcohol issues were at the forefront of communities, as further research by FARE showed that Australians were spending more on alcohol than personal care and education.
“Adults across Australia need to encourage our future generations to make safer and healthier choices concerning alcohol,” Mr Fawsitt said.
With the support of popular mascot, Healthy Harold the Giraffe, Life Education undertakes drug and health education programs to over 3300 primary and secondary schools and reaches more than 640,000 children every year.
Ocsober is an easy way to help do something about the growing danger of binge drinking and alcohol abuse among young Australians.
