Education via a T-shirt is the motivation of Napier Justice of the Peace, Pat Magill, who is a regular visitor to Waitangi Day celebra- tions. This year he will be bringing a T-shirt with a message, directed at mainly politicians towards understanding better the country s pending constitution. This is to promote awareness of how vibrant this nation could become, if we pull together, Mr Magill says. Febfast looks for support For the third year run- ning, New Zealanders are being challenged to give up alcohol for the month of February to raise money to support young people with alcohol and other drug problems. Co-ordinator Jackson Wood says Febfast is a good chance to push pause on alcohol after the busy summer cel- ebration season. Giving your body a break gives you a chance to reassess your relation- ship with alcohol after a season traditionally booze-soaked, he says. Lots of Febfasters notice the health benefits of laying off alcohol with weight loss, better con- centration and, best of all, no hangovers being reported. The funds raised by Febfast in 2013 will be used to promote, expand and enhance the Drug Foundation s youth focused information ser- vice Get the Msg! (Get the Message), a free nationwide alcohol and drug information and advice service for young New Zealanders and their families. An expanded youth drug information service means more young peo- ple will be getting the information they need in the way they want it, helping them to make better choices. Go to febfast.org.nz.
