International FAS Day 1999 9/9 9:09
In one magic minute, we can change the world!
Our goal is that in each time zone, at 9:09 a.m., this last September in the old Millennium, people stop for a Minute of Reflection about the invisible plague called Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. We would like school children, parents at home, people at work, and radio and TV stations to take one minute to remember that during the nine months of pregnancy, or while breastfeeding or planning to conceive, a woman should not consume alcohol.
