MADD Online Victim Survivor Tributes
Behind every drunk driving statistic is a person whose life was full of family and friends, love and life, joy and laughter. Collectively, they are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Their lives touched so many and they will never be forgotten. MADD’s Online Victim/Survivor Tribute honors and remembers those killed or injured in a drunk driving crash.
These online tribute pages can serve as a gathering place to cherish memories, share stories and display photos of loved ones killed or injured in drunk driving crashes. They can also serve to increase awareness of the tragic consequence of drunk driving and raise funds for MADD’s lifesaving work.
When creating your online tribute page, you will also create your own Tribute Fund which provides a vehicle for you, your family and friends to donate and raise money for MADD’s mission to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.
Why a Tribute
