Break these Chains..

Debbie LaRocque started this string of beads in 2006 with the 1st bead being her child's. Each bead represents a child that we know has died from the choking game since then. This string of beads is now over 20 ft long with over 600 beads and these are only the ones that are self-reported.



Today October 11, 2012 marks the first World Choking Game Awareness Day! #SPEAKUP  and shout out the importance and significance of making more people aware of this deadly game that kids are playing!

THESE KIDS ARE DYING! WE CAN STOP THIS
EDUCATE YOURSELF
EDUCATE YOUR KIDS!
EMPOWER YOUR COMMUNITY


10-11-12 the ages you should talk to kids because the average age of death is 13. It is estimated that 75% of kids know about the game but 40% of kids think it's harmless. It is not - just start asking 13 and 14 yr olds if they've heard of a game where kids pass out for fun because it has way too many names among kids to ask just about the choking game..

On 10/11/12, we request that you make the ribbon your profile pic or at least talk to some people about the game. 

IT IS going on around you - SPEAK UP

 and help keep our children from dying a senseless death.

Thank you to the Kris Marceno Foundation for their award winning PSA -
