Consider Yourself Challenged! GFP is sponsoring a “Talk to the Hand Challenge”! Smoking is bad for you, whether you’re doing the smoking or not. Bad teeth, lung problems, heart disease, grey skin… you name it. There are many, many reasons not to smoke. So, let your hand do the talking and tell why you think smoking is bad for you.
Send your “Fist Face Photo” to firstname.lastname@example.org. Best photos get no prizes. There are no winners when it comes to smoking. We just need to work hard to spread the word one fist at a time! Game on!
