Kick Butts Day 2015
Wednesday, march 18
Kick Butts is a National Campaign for Tobacco-free kids!
This year Kick Butts Day is focusing on a campaign, Not a Replacement. This campaign is directed towards teens. The reason is less than one third (31%) of smokers start smoking after the age of 18 and only 5% start after the age of 24. This is why teens are becoming the "replacement" for the smokers who have died.
The Not a Replacement campaign is simple for anyone to join the movement. You need a Not a Replacement "selfie statement" (Spanish version), marker, and a camera.
1. Personalize a "Not A Replacement Selfie Statement" with a description of who you are and what you represent. For example, “I am Not A Replacement, I AM an artist."
2. Take a picture of yourself holding your "Selfie Statement."
3. Share on social media with #NotAReplacement (Facebook: must post directly on Kick Butts Day's timeline).
Kick Butts Day has an online gallery where all the photos with the hashtag go. If you do not have social media don't feel left out, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your picture.
