R&B crooner Mario has never been shy about letting the world know about his mother being addicted to drugs. He even did a documentary on MTV called ‘I Will Not Love You To Death’ dealing with his mom’s drug addiction. Since then he has always supported children whose parents are addicted to drugs. Through his ‘Do Right’ Foundation, and REACH he has been able to do so.
On tomorrow, his Do Right Foundation, REACH, along with Baltimore City middle and high schools, he will kick-off The Do Right School-Based Initiative.
On January 25, 2012 the foundation will place its DO RIGHT SCHOOL BASED INITIATIVE in a middle/high school in Baltimore, Maryland. This cutting-edge substance abuse prevention program will make it easier for students to DO RIGHT!
In a classroom setting, student participants will be administered an evidence-based curriculum recommended by the American Medical Association, White House Office of Drug Policy and the U.S Department of Education. The program will promote healthy alternatives to risky behavior through activities designed to teach students the necessary skills to resist peer pressures to use drugs and alcohol and will help students to develop greater self-esteem and self-confidence.
Using SKYPE, Mario will video chat with students as well as make visits to the school to help motivate the students to complete the course.
DivaWhispers congratulates and honors Mario for giving back to his community.
