SOCIAL MEDIA

TESTIMONIALS

We are asking members of the Song for Charlie community to help us inform young people about the dangers of fentapills. The most powerful messages come from people who have been directly impacted by the death of a loved one. We learn from our peers, so we hope to engage people between ages 13-30 in this effort to prevent future tragedies.

 

If you have lost a friend, partner, sibling, or cousin to a fentapill, we invite you to share your story in a short video testimonial. If you want to tell your story as a survivor, we welcome your story as well. We will be posting these videos across all of our social platforms. 

To ensure that your story is sharable, please make sure it is no more than 60 seconds long. If you are willing to share your story publicly, please make sure to read over our tips and requirements first.
