Each year during the holiday season there is a day for shopping in stores: Black Friday, and a day for shopping online: Cyber Monday. Now, there is a day for Americans to show they give as good as they get: #GivingTuesday.

We are using #GivingTuesday to launch our 2013 holiday fundraising campaign! We’ve set a goal to raise $220,000 this holiday season. With this $220,000 taking us into the new year, we’re confident that we’ll be able to make great strides in 2014.

We plan to:

  • Continue advocating for new legislation in states that currently do not require convicted drunk drivers to use ignition interlock devices.
  • Serve even more victims and survivors of drunk and drugged driving in 2013 and beyond — until there are no more victims to serve.
  • Equip more parents and teens with the tools they need to prevent underage drinking.

Your support today will save lives in 2014.  Please make your most generous donation now.

You can help make #GivingTuesday — the giving season’s opening day — a success by donating to MADD today! Or find your local office to learn more about how you can give back by volunteering.
