Fentanyl Education Saves Lives
Support for BirdieLight will help provide BirdieBoxes to educate young people about the dangers of unintentional fentanyl ingestion.
Thanks to you and other generous donors, BirdieLight can provide BirdieBoxes to educate young people about the dangers of unintentional fentanyl ingestion.
In 2021 in the United States, more than 108,000 people died due to a drug-related ingestion—more than 80,000 due to fentanyl alone. The fastest-rising demographic for these fatalities is between ages 15-25. BirdieLight has found an enormous gap in standardized drug-adulteration education for high school and college students, and fills that gap as the only fentanyl harm-reduction educational program specifically targeted for this age group. The organization aims to become the standard by which all Ohio students are educated about the fentanyl public health crisis.
Thank you for helping BirdieLight continue empowering young people to become agents in their own safety.
We are Better Together!
“BirdieLight’s solution to the fentanyl crisis is education, education, education! We aren’t going to get anywhere with this crisis until we educate young people about what fentanyl is, where it’s found, and how to stay safe from it.”
—Beth Weinstock, MD, Founder and Executive Director
Save lives by educating young people about the danger of unintentional Fentanyl ingestion, and by empowering them with tools to detect Fentanyl before they ingest it.
