The Meth Project

Since I'm on a roll here with campaign's I want to share the new campaign for The Meth Project, a non-profit organization focused on warning and educating teens about the dangers of meth use.  This is a SCARY drug!!!  Parents need to be always vigil, always watching and always questioning. 

The non-profit has developed 4 hard-hitting videos that show teens reflecting upon the questions they might have asked before ever trying the drug. In "Losing Control," a teenage boy reflects on how his Meth addiction has driven him to steal from his family and turn violent on his little brother. (Keep in mind some of these videos are very hard-hitting.)

The project has also created a highly interactive website, methproject.org, designed to encourage teens to ask questions about Meth. No sugar-coating.  Just factual answers to important questions.  It’s very visual and dramatic and there's an area, "Speak up" where teens post their own content.

Here are the other three campaign videos if you'd like to watch them. They were directed by Academy Award nominee Darren Aronofsky, director of Black Swan and The Wrestler.
