August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD)
Free Downloadable Social Media Images to Bring Awareness to IOAD
Unfortunately, the opioid epidemic isn’t much of a headline anymore. With over 100 overdose-related deaths everyday, we, as a country, have become desensitized to death and drugs. Funeral homes are charged with taking care of the final arrangements for those who have been taken from this earth too soon.
August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD). Although we are all aware of the overdoses that are creeping into our community, I urge you to consider using this platform to shed light on how heartbreaking this is from a funeral home’s perspective.
Here’s a message from the IOAD official website:
“IOAD is a global event held on August 31st each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. It also acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have met with death or permanent injury as a result of drug overdose.”
To show support and solidarity on this pressing issue, IOAD has created images to upload onto your Facebook pages.
We have provided a download folder for these images: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rhfsedabp6gzek1/AACUNwCZq6JueJMRd1fUvYCva?dl=0
ConnectingDirectors.com encourages you to use August 31 to address this
heartbreaking issue we are facing as a country. Bring attention to the issue by posting one of the above images and sharing kind thoughts or an experience your funeral home has experienced. With support from all walks of life we can look forward to the light at the end of the tunnel that will end this epidemic this nation is facing.
