Ashley Wagner shoots a PSA with Ask, Listen, Learn!

December 16th, 2013

Ashley isn’t just a star on the ice, but also a star in front of the camera! The Ask, Listen, Learn team joined her in Newark, NJ on Thursday, December 12, 2013 to shoot a PSA for our campaign to say YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking.

Her charisma and positive attitude make her a role model for young fans everywhere. She is dedicated not only to the Ask, Listen, Learn missions, but insists that it is because of her decision to maintain a healthy lifestyle that her goals are now closer than ever! Fifty days closer to be exact!

Since it is now 50 days to Sochi, make sure to Tweet how YOU maintain a healthy lifestyle to @AskListenLearn! We’d love to hear how you are interacting with your kids and starting the important conversation of saying YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking!

Stay tuned for special teasers and behind-the-scenes action of this superstar’s efforts to shine a light on this important topic.

Our final Alcohol Awareness Month event!

April 30th, 2013

After visiting schools in Michigan and Arizona, Ask, Listen, Learn went back east to Branchburg Central Middle School in Branchburg, NJ. We were so happy to have Attorney General Chiesa join us, especially since his son and daughter are students at Branchburg Central!

Close to home, AG Chiesa got a special introduction by his own son, Al, who is not only a student but also class treasurer for Branchburg Central Middle School! After a fantastic warm welcome, Attorney General Chiesa spoke to the students about two ways to respond to bad decisions. He explained that students can say NO to bad decision, and also help someone else say no, too.

He then shared an important story of a 13 year old girl. This young girl was afraid to tell her mother about a bad situation she was in. Luckily, her best friend was able to stand up for her and talked to a law enforcement officer, who was able to get the help her friend needed. Because she had the strength, she was able to help best friend. With this story, Attorney General Chiesa encouraged the students – and the teachers too – to have the strength to say no to bad decisions, but to stand up for the right things, as well.

Attorney General then talked with the kids about sports. He shared that we need our brains, hearts and lungs to perform on the field and in school, too. He reminded them that if they drink alcohol, every part of their body is negatively affected. He then challenged them to do their very best every day, both on and off the field, and to have the strength to say NO to underage drinking, and YES to a healthy lifestyle!

It was an incredible morning at Branchburg Central Middle School. We want to extend a warm thank you to Attorney General Chiesa, and the great staff and teachers. You guys are awesome!

As we close Alcohol Awareness Month, we’ve had a really incredible journey. We loved visiting students all over the country, including Norwalk, Connecticut; Montgomery, Alabama; Washington, DC; Mesa, Arizona; Standish, Michigan; and of course, Branchburg, NJ. Thanks for helping us to bring special attention to Ask, Listen, Learn— because kids and alcohol DON’T mix!
