#IAmAware Because of Carson

Every year people share their stories with us and say, “I am aware because of Carson’s Story.” Through Aware Awake Alive campaigns and programs, WITH US works to increase public awareness about the signs of alcohol poisoning, the dangers of binge drinking and hazing, and the role each of us can play in saving lives by simply stepping up to help one another.

Carson was among friends when he died from an alcohol overdose. Their unchecked hazing traditions, lack of awareness, and pervasive bystander apathy led to his preventable death. Had his peers been educated and trained to help when it mattered most, Carson could still be with us today.

These all too familiar tragedies continue to plague our campus communities. Students witness alcohol misuse and hazing on college campuses across the country and are often ill-equipped to assess the situation as a problem or intervene to help when people are harmed.

WITH US was founded to prepare young people for these moments - to inspire bystanders to be UPSTANDERS that take action to intervene and help others in need.

Help us create a world where no life is lost to alcohol poisoning or hazing. Support our mission and this year’s Aware Awake Alive campaign with a gift today!

Aware Awake Alive Week

The theme of this year’s National Aware Awake Alive Week Campaign (April 29-May 3) is #IAmAware.

Throughout this week, and year round, our goal is for students everywhere to confidently say:

#IAmAware of the effects of alcohol on the body at various BAC levels.

#IAmAware of my own limits and how to drink responsibly if I choose to.

#IAmAware of the dangers of hazing and why I can’t keep silent about it.

#IAmAware of the signs of alcohol poisoning and when I MUST HELP.

#IAmAware of the amnesty laws that protect me when I make the call.

#IAmAware that my decision to help could save someone’s life.

 

 

Join us during Aware Awake Alive Week and throughout the month of May to help us expand the reach and impact of these important lessons.

Here’s how:
