Mother’s Day
By MADD | May 8, 2013| 1 Comments | Filed in: General , Victim Services

Mother’s Day is a special holiday at MADD, since we were founded by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver. But as we all know, it’s not just mothers who are impacted by drunk driving; fathers, children, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends can all be victimized by the traumatic death or injury of a loved one. 

MADD Victim Services offers a wide selection of brochures for crash victims, available in English and Spanish, covering grief and healing, talking to children and teens about death, coping with serious injury, the criminal and civil court system, and other topics of interest.  You can find that information here.

If you are struggling with grief this Mother's Day, please know MADD is here for you. Our 24/7 Help Line is available at no charge at 877.MADD.HELP (632.3435). You can also read our Holiday Grief Tips to find suggestions for people experiencing bereavement and/or injury for coping during a holiday.

MADD wishes everyone a safe and happy Mother’s Day.

I strongly feel your organization is targeting the wrong people. Why are you not targeting suppliers?????? Bars who over serve etc. If this is and epidemic, why serve a drug which is consumed onsite, knowing that person has to drive away. Does the DEA target users? No, the cartel who supplies............. Just saying. Lobby the governments for controls at bars. You will go no where.....Too much easy money on alcohol sales. DUI laws are not the solution to an epidemic, tighter sales laws are.
