Three quarters of Australians believe the nation has a problem with excess drinking or alcohol abuse, according to a recent poll carried out by the Foundation for Alcohol Research & Education (FARE).
The survey showed that almost 80% of people want to see more done to reduce the harm caused by alcohol and Life Education is urging Aussies everywhere to invest in education as part of the broader solution. The challenge is to lose the booze for 31 days as part of “Ocsober” and raise money to support Life Education, an Australian not-for-profit organisation that is synonymous with ‘Healthy Harold’ and its preventative health programs.
With influential support coming from Ocsober ambassadors such as Georgie Gardner, Angry Anderson, Trent ‘Maxi’ Maxwell and Deedee Zibara, now is the time to sign up and make a change in the community. “During Ocsober, raising just $109 will subsidise 10 children from a disadvantaged school so they can access the Life Education program for the first time,” Life Education NSW CEO Kellie Sloane said.
It’s not too late! Register as a team or individual now at www.ocsober.com.au to take the 31 day challenge.
