Asking for $300,000 wasn't easy. We knew it was a lot to request from our supporters, but we also knew it was vital to help victims, advocate and support lifesaving technology.
Thousands of people stood up to demand an end to drunk driving, a 100% preventable and violent crime. Together, we raised nearly $260,000 to provide victims with a service at no charge every three minutes, to advocate for justice in our laws and courtrooms, and move lifesaving technology to the market faster.
This year, we face some challenges, but we remain dedicated to moving from more than 10,000 victims a year to No More Victims®.
And thanks to you, we have the ability to do so.
We asked people to share why they donate to MADD. Here are just a few reasons people shared:
"My son was hit by a drunk driver, and it was the driver's third offense. Fortunately, my son lived, but it was an emotional experience I will never forget. I pray people will think before they drink." – Sherma Jones
"Our donation is made in honor of our precious grandchildren, Ryan and Kaitlyn Jahn, and their sweet momma, Mandy Jahn, who were all killed by a drunk driver on November 6, 2008. Yet, even in their absence, Mandy, Ryan, and Kaitlyn's story continues to touch hearts, change lives, and prayerfully be instrumental in ending this preventable crime once and for all."– Karen and Ed Jahn
|"We're donating to help make our road safer; a drunk driver killed our daughter on 12/22/2007. We just want to bring awareness to our society that nothing more devastating than seeing your own kid passed before us."– Tguyen|
These are just a few of the responses we received. Many are from victims or survivors. Others come from people who KNOW there is a solution to this epidemic.
And with your help, we will get there.
Thank you for your generosity.
