  1. Hello – thanks for your reminder in sharing this powerful resource http://www.faslink.org/. We also follow this resourceful FASD site.
    And yes we were aware of the Purple – shirt campaign associated with FASD Day. Many communities choose to acknowledge the day with different traditions. In our area, we also have t-shirts stating the theme from the New Prevention FASD project ” let’s talk about alcohol and pregnancy.”
