IN 2018, THERE WERE 354 MAINERS WHO LOST THEIR LIVES TO OPIOID OVERDOSE.

You may be asking...

"WHAT CAN I DO?"

We've got the answer! Join us in our social fundraising campaign:

Keep Calm and Carry Naloxone!

 

For every $50 you raise, you save a life. 

It's that simple.

WHY this campaign?

The opioid crisis rages on. Over the past three years we've lost more than 1,000 Mainers to drug overdoses.

 

To truly address this crisis we need bold action, meaningful reforms, and harm reduction services. 

​In the lead up to August 31, International Overdose Awareness

Day, the Health Equity Alliance (HEAL) and our allies are

committed to raising over $17,700. That's $50 in honor of each

of the 354 Mainers who died of a drug overdose in 2018, to

help prevent 354 more overdose deaths and end overdose in

Maine.

All funds will support the provision of harm reduction services,

including naloxone distribution, and help advance meaningful

political reform by ending the war on drugs and aligning Maine's

response to the opioid crisis with public health and

compassionate care to truly end overdose in Maine.

By joining the campaign, you can make this dream possible!

HOW CAN I HELP?

​We're relying on caring community members like you to raise small gifts towards a larger goal. If 354 people raise at least $50 each, we can reach our goal and help reverse the tide of drug overdose deaths that has been sweeping Maine.

 

Set your goal as low at $50 or as high as you can go! Collect contributions of $5, $10, $20, or more from people in your network who want to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors. You can share the campaign with your friends, your family, your co-workers, everyone you care about. Talk to them about the campaign and how they can make a difference too!

You can also form a team to increase your impact and widen your network!

For every $50 you raise, you can save a life.

You may be wondering...

"HOW DO I START?"

We've got you covered!

"What ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?"
