Day 4 – Red Shoes Rock – FASD Awareness

Red Shoes Rock

Write a PSA!

September is Fetal Alcohol Awareness Month – so share this wonderful PSA with friends – or take a look at some of the other great PSA’s online – most of the people working with FASD Awareness willingly share –

Happy FASD Awareness Day from Kentucky!
