Post #44 of #49 – Over the next 24 hours I will be raising funds for the Union Gospel Mission during Blogathon 2009 by writing a blog post every 30 minutes. Please consider donating to my cause to keep my going until 6am PT July 26th.
“You’re probably not expecting to drown today” is the slogan used in a recent campaign to raise awareness for water safety this summer, and at all times of year. The Community Against Preventable Injuries and the Canadian Red Cross want British Columbians to think safety when engaging in activities on or near the water.
Though a grass-roots initiative, The Community Against Preventable Injuries has become a province-wide, multi-partner organization designed to raise awareness, transform attitudes, and ultimately change behaviours. Its goal is to significantly reduce the number â€“ and severity â€“ of preventable injuries in BC.
You can find out more about this campaign and others over on the society’s website, Preventable.ca.
