 Sunday September 9th is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Awareness Day. This day celebrates 9 months alcohol-free and is represented on the 9th day of the 9th month (September) of the year. We would like to encourage everyone with social media to help spread the message. If you have a Twitter account, you can “tweet” one of the following messages which fit within the 140 character limit. Our goal is to have the hashtag #FASD appear in top tweets by Sunday:
