About the Foundation for a Tobacco Free World
The Foundation for a Tobacco Free World’s mission is to motivate youth to stay tobacco and vape free, and to empower those addicted to quit successfully. Best known for its campaigns for teen smoking prevention, the group’s website also offers free support each month to thousands of smokers who wish to quit.
The 501c3 org has worked since 1989 to educate the public and government officials about polices which have successfully reduced smoking rates in nations which have implemented them. Their websites offer youth education about chewing tobacco, e-cigarettes, hookahs and more.
The Foundation’s tobacco and vaping prevention message to youth has impacted millions of children and teens, and its educational video, The Truth About Tobacco, has now been purchased by over 10,000 schools and health departments, both in the US and internationally.
Tobacco Free World was awarded a continuing $10,000 per month grant from Google for free advertising, which the foundation uses to raise public awareness about tobacco use. The group provides free smoking cessation tips and excellent tobacco prevention resources; it also supports thousands of students every year who are researching papers about tobacco.
When Greece’s Minister of Health invited the Foundation’s Executive Director Patrick Reynolds to speak in Athens in 2009, there was strong coverage by the Greek newsmedia of his visit. At this time, the Foundation is seeking corporate, private and government sponsors for additional international speaking tours. In China and India alone, it is anticipated that one billion people would get a powerful reminder about tobacco use from news coverage in those nations.
The Foundation for a Tobacco Free World is a tax-exempt, public foundation. Please donate now to support the Foundation’s mission and outreach in the US and internationally.
