Stop The Choking Game

A few weeks ago I did a post on "The Choking Game" and I have received a number of comments and emails about it.  Some of the stories are so sad...grieving parents who lost vibrant kids to this crazy game.  Children have no idea of the dangers involved and there is a lack of awareness even among educators and parents.

I was contacted by a woman who is raising money to attend and exhibit at the National PTA Convention, which will be held in San Jose in June.  The goal is to raise awareness about the Choking Game.  I hope readers will see how important this cause is.

Please go to this link and donate a little if you can so these parents can help educators know that knowledge is power and kids need to be informed.   The video on the site is too shocking to put on EverythingHealth.  I could hardly watch it to the end.  A light needs to be shined on this practice and hopefully parents, teachers and principals will understand that informing kids about the game will not increase its use...it may save lives.

Thank you so much for shining a light on this dangerous practice. We need more health bloggers like you that give important information. Keep it up.
