Febfast – A pause for the better

With the silly season now behind us I am sure many of you just like me aren’t really enjoying the view they see when they look behind either. With the festive season comes many reasons to celebrate with plenty of food and alcohol. So why not take the 28 days of February off alcohol not just for your back, front or right side but for the good of raising funds for youth addiction?

feb fast

Febfast is the original charity movement which challenges you to take a 28 day break from alcohol to support over 50 programs that Febfast has established around the country. Including Youth Support and Advocacy Services (YSAS), Family Drug Support (FDS), Brisbane Youth Service and a new project launching this year called LADDER which tackles youth homelessness.

Febfast started in 2007 by Fiona Healy to assist youth addicted to drugs and alcohol. According the World Health Organisation every month 22,000 teenagers turn to alcohol and drug support services asking for help.

If you don’t want to give up alcohol or you already don’t drink Febfast urges you to try and take a break from alcohol, sugar, caffeine, or digital overload.

For more information on how you can make a pause for the better visit the Febfast website.
