30 Days of Love - Day 19: Red Ribbon Week - October 23rd to October 31st

Day 19 is dedicated to Red Ribbon Week!

Red Ribbon Week is during the week of October 23rd - October 31st each year and is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and  take a visible stand against drugs. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon.

The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance  towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment  towards the creation of a DRUG - FREE AMERICA.
