betcha dint know drunk driving was a "violent crime"

Dear Frank,

Please help me change a life this week.

This week is National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, when we come together to honor both crime victims and those who advocate for them, guiding victims/survivors through times that no-one should have to face. Because drunk driving is the nation’s most frequently committed violent crime, MADD is a large part of this movement. We provide services to over 55,000 victims and survivors of drunk driving each year. But there are still hundreds of thousands who need our help.

Can you give $17 a month? Seventeen dollars provides the first hour of victim services to someone who’s been impacted by a drunk driving crash. In that first hour, lives change. In that moment, MADD can give a person someone to talk to, cry with, lean on.

I know. I’ve been there, both as a victim and a victim advocate. Here’s a story of one person's healing journey:

Please help me help the thousands of victims and survivors of drunk driving during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. Together, we can help survivors survive.

Thank you,

I'm not much of a drinker myself, I can take it or leave it anymore, but let's face it, when we go play softball, we have a couple beers, and a couple is all it takes anymore to go over .08 BAC. Or, when I go to a Mexican restaurant, I like to have a Marg- would a big one put me over? Funny, I've driven home from softball and Mexican Village for many many years and I didn't know that was a violent crime.
