From now until January, MADD Canada and its volunteers will be encouraging everyone to plan ahead for a sober ride home if consuming alcohol, cannabis or other drugs. Thousands of red ribbons and red ribbon car decals will be distributed for people to display as a sign of their commitment to sober driving, and as reminder that the tragic deaths and injuries resulting from impaired driving are 100% preventable.With in-person community events for Project Red Ribbon limited this year due to the pandemic, the 50/50 Raffle is just one of the unique new ways MADD Canada and its dedicated volunteers are using to engage the public during the holiday season.About MADD Canada
