September 9th – FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome) Awareness Day

August 24th, 2012 by

In February 1999, a small group of parents with children who suffer from fetal alcohol spectrum disorders united to promote awareness of the devastating consequences of alcohol consumption during pregnancy by establishing International Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Awareness Day.

Bonnie Buxton of Toronto, Canada, the co-founder of the first international FAS Fetal Alcohol Syndromes Awareness Day, asked “What if…. A world full of FASD (fetal alcohol spectrum disorders) parents all got together on the ninth hour of the ninth day of the ninth month of the year and asked the world to remember that, during the 9 months of pregnancy, a woman should not consume alcohol…… would the rest of the world listen?

Since 1999 communities around the world have observed International Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Awareness Day.

In September of 2011 Governor Beebe signed the first proclamation in Arkansas declaring September 9th as FAS awareness Day in Arkansas and he plans to again this year.

We ask everyone to participate in a minute of reflection on September 9th at 9:09 a.m. We will be ringing bells across the state to remember those living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and to remind women not to drink during the 9 months of pregnancy, while breastfeeding or when planning to conceive. Ring a hand bell or get your church or other organization to ring bells at the precise time so that the message can be heard across the state and join with others around the world during this international campaign.
