R.J. Formanek actually began the movement to bring visibility to the in visible lifetime 100% preventable disability of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders in 2013. Then in 2014 Better Endings New Beginnings (Jodee Kulp) and LiveAbilities Good Fruit Camp Productions (Sam Guerrido) joined RJ to help build awareness leading up to International FASDay on September 9 – we gave it a go for 30 days having fun gaining almost 1000 followers. We continued it in 2015 for 60 days. Last year we joined forces with the Tiny Titan Team and Ann Yurcek, Sasha with Savanna Pietrantonio and Mark and Johan Wiklander of RealMindz plus loads of friends from over 40 countries — Over a 90 day campaign to create awareness with 90 Real People. Real Lives we reached 150,000 views.
