California Aids Prevention Campaign – HIV

You have the power to do something right now that could drastically affect the rest of your life. It doesn't involve decisions about college, or work, or joining the military or anything like that. It simply involves using a condom if you're having sex. See, the risk of getting HIV and AIDS is still out there and these days, half the people who get HIV are 24 years old or younger. When you can trust the person you're with you can love the person you're with, but trust and love can't stop HIV - condoms can. The person you're with may look fine, but they could be infected. And having unprotected sex just once can turn your whole life upside down. Every 15 minutes of every day another person 24 or younger gets infected with HIV. Make sure you're not one of them, respect yourself, protect yourself. Have questions; call 1-800-922-AIDS. Brought to you by the California AIDS Prevention Campaign.

Drug Abuse PSA

Drug abuse may not be an epidemic, but it is a major public health problem. The impact on American society is staggering. Each year, drug abuse kills 14,000 Americans and costs taxpayers nearly $70 billion in unnecessary health care costs, extra law enforcement, auto accidents, crime and lost productivity. Illicit drug abuse hurts families, businesses, and neighborhoods, impedes education and chokes the criminal justice, health and social service systems. While overall use of drugs in the United States has fallen by half in the last 15 years, adolescent drug use continues at high levels. Teach your children to stay off drugs.

Illicit drug abuse hurts families, businesses, and neighborhoods, impedes education, and chokes the criminal justice, health and social service systems.

Energy Star Lightbulbs

The traditional lightbulb: a ground-breaking invention in 1879. It's time we switch to longer-lasting Energy Star lightbulbs. They're more efficient than the old bulbs -- like a text message is more efficient than a carrier pigeon. And they cut down on our energy costs. Because in our own ground-breaking age, we deserve a light bulb that saves us some cash. Saving energy saves you money. Learn more at Energy Savers dot gov.

Girls’ Self-Esteem

Does a hero know she’s a hero if no one tells her? Do you know a hero no one else knows? A hero doesn’t have to save a busload of school kids from certain disaster. Or score the winning point to the big game. A hero can be anyone who inspires you, anyone you look up to, anyone who cheers you on, makes you better than you were before--just as they made themselves better than they were before. Do you know a hero? Tell her. Then tell everyone.

Will she look at magazines and think she has to be as thin as the models she sees? Think that independence makes her less desirable? Lower her expectations because she can’t find women to look up to? Will she grow up questioning the things we don’t? Will she be confident enough that these issues don’t bother her at all? If she plays sports, if she’s healthy and strong and self-assured, they won’t. Being active can make a difference in the lives of women and in the lives of generations of women to come. So talk about what bothers you. Then change it.

Haiti Relief

In January 2010, a deadly earthquake struck Haiti. The destruction was unimaginable.

Even the capitol building lies in ruins.

Rubble is everywhere and people are still digging out.

A quarter million dead, countless injured. Buildings, schools, and homes leveled to the ground. Survivors still living in makeshift shelters With no money to rebuild.

As you head into the countryside, you can see some emergency aid is getting through…

and you can see the sad but hopeful faces of children.

Beyond the city, supplies can’t reach people until roads are cleared.

More aid is still needed. People need food and water day after day…and the water must be not just potable, but portable as well…because so many people are located in hard-to-reach places.

That's why Jusuru (Joo-SOO-roo) has donated to the international relief effort. Though our chief product is a nutritional supplement, we also manufacture oxygenated water. We shipped our entire inventory to Haiti as soon as we learned about the disaster and a Jusuru team was on hand to help distribute clean water, along with clothing, sandals, toiletries, and first aid kits.

To learn more about Jusuru’s Giving Program, contact the person who shared this video with you.

In This Place - PSA

This. This is where we are. A place where parents provide beer to 17-year-olds…where 9th graders drink rum from coke cans during school, and kids take their first drink as young as 9 or 10. A place where alcohol tastes like lemonade, and doing 12 to 15 shots a night is commonplace.

How did it get so far away from how you and I remember it? How did casual beer drinking turn into a hard-hitting, no rules sport? Where did the line between having fun and getting blind drunk get blurred? And how did we unknowingly get swept along?

How did we land here? In this place.

Becoming an organ donor is one of the most important decisions you can make. In 2000, 3,916 Americans died while waiting for a transplant. On May 6, 2000, 55,560 patients in the United States were awaiting transplant. When deciding to become an organ donor, consider these facts: Your donor status has no effect on the care you receive. Organ and tissue recovery occurs only after every effort has been made to save your life. Organs are removed surgically from the donor without disfiguring the body. People of any age and with any medical history may still be donors. If you decide to become an organ donor, share your decision with your family now. Signing a donor card does not ensure that your organs will be donated.

Some people would call him a loser. He ran for state office: he was beaten. He started a business: he failed. He ran for congress: he lost. He was nominated for Vice-President: he lost again.

But he knew only those who never try are the real losers. And Abraham Lincoln was no loser. Persistence...pass it on.

A message from the Foundation for a Better Life.

Direction note: original PSA ran 25 seconds in length.

Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association

When medicines can help people like Phyllis avoid a stroke, that’s obviously a good thing. What’s not so apparent is how dramatically the same drugs reduce nursing home costs. Stroke often leaves survivors so disabled they require nursing home care, which now averages over $30,000 a year per patient. For further information on how new medicines improve lives and save money, write THE PHARMACEUTICAL MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION, 1100 Fifteenth Street, Northwest, Box T, Washington, D.C. 20005, or call 1-800-538-2692.

Plastics Technology

Ever heard of a crash diet in packaging? Well, plastic soft drink bottles have been slimming down for years. Take today’s popular two-liter bottles. They’re 27% lighter than they were in 1990, but still as strong and shatter resistant as ever. And, these leaner plastic bottles reduce the need for millions of pounds of packaging, helping to conserve precious natural resources. To learn more about the benefits of packaging and our environment, contact the American Plastics Council at 1-800-2-HELP-90.

Power For Living

Fear consumed my every waking moment. It wasn’t rational but there it was, ruining my life. Then one day I came across a book called Power For Living. From the very first chapter, it helped me confront my fear head-on. In a world filled with easy answers and cheap solutions, Power For Living showed me that the way out of my despair was to develop a personal relationship with God. Its message was so strong and so real that it put me on the road to a happier, more fulfilling life. And made fear a part of my past.

There’ll be dress ups, and hats
Some people will get a written invitation
And of course they’ll be keeping a eye on numbers, and checking ID's
There’ll be loud music, flashing lights and they’ll take loads of photos
They've got glow sticks, and endless supply of straws, and lollipops
Of course some will be surprise guests, and others would want to stay on
But you wont have much to celebrate

Banda has no parents, so he and his brother are facing the world all alone. They are too young to take care of themselves. Their drinking water is dirty, and unsafe. It could kill them. They have no medicine, no food, no parents and very little chance. Banda misses his mom so much and he wonders how he’ll go on without her. Banda desperately needs our help just to survive.

Please go online or call now and join UNICEF for just 15 dollars a month. It’s only 50 cents a day and it means you can get children like Banda the help they need to survive. Emergency care is delivered every single day of the year to children who could die without it. Things like nutrition, vaccines and antimalarial bagnetts. That’s what your 50 cents a day buys.

World Vision - Indonesia

In the urban slums of Indonesia, sometimes it’s hard to be a kid. It’s even harder if you have a disability. One evening three years ago, Dodik fell off his friend’s bike and lost the use of his arms and legs. For many children in Indonesia, education is the only way out of the slums, but for Dodik the only way to get to school was on foot; he couldn’t walk and he couldn’t even hold a pen. Child sponsors help world vision to reach the most vulnerable children from the poorest families; to help them gain access to healthcare and education and to be included in their communities. After months of physical therapy, Dodik started to move his hands, arms and feet. Today, he can walk again. This morning Dodik walked to school for the first time since the accident.

We urge you to review this recorded series along with the accompanying handout. Illegal drugs can cause serious physical and mental harm which can be permanent. Drug use often leads to addiction and the habit may then be fed by prostitution, burglary, or other violations. Police alone cannot prevent all importation, local cultivation, manufacture, trafficking, and use of drugs. You, your schools, and your community must collaborate
