Hi guys and girls from Bonnie Buxton in Toronto,
I am thrilled to see your FASDay plans!!! For two reasons!!! First, I am a native Edmontonian, graduate of Strathcona Composite and U. of Alberta. Second, my husband Brian Philcox and I are founders of FASworld Canada, and also came up with the idea of FASD Day while digging out from a snowstorm in Toronto in January, 1999. “What if on the 9th minute of the 9th hour of the 9th day of the year 1999, we asked the world to remember that women should not consume alcohol in pregnancy?” We e-mailed all of our national and international colleagues and were thrilled that the first FASDay was observed all over the world. It still is!!! My adopted daughter with FASD, Colette, will be coming to Kingston with me, and we have been invited to speak at Queen’s University. We’ll be thinking of you on Sept. 9, and please let me know how it goes!

Thank you, Bonnie. We hope to get a good turnout and a good conversation about FASD and prevention on this day. We hope your day goes well too!
