Kauai initiative to use 'sticker shock' to highlight underage drinking

KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - On April 27, members of Life's Choices Kauai and volunteers will be meeting at liquor stores all over the island to bring attention to the consequences of providing alcohol to minors.

From 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., participants will be posting thousands of stickers highlighting the legal ramifications of providing alcohol to minors as part of its "Sticker Shock" campaign.

The county-run anti-drug program is looking for volunteers to participate in the campaign.

"We would like to invite anyone who's interested to join us in our efforts to educate the community on the negative effects of underage drinking," said Prevention Coordinator Maile Murray in a news release. "We plan to post over 3,000 stickers that day and could use the help."

According to their site, Life's Choices mission is to prevent drug and alcohol abuse and addiction on Kauai and provides drug and alcohol treatment resources for Kauai community members.

"This initiative also enhances the leadership and advocacy skills of our youth participants as well as provide other peer-to-peer opportunities for them," said Life's Choices Kauai Coordinator Theresa Koki, in a news release. "In addition, it's a great way for parents to start a discussion on this important topic with their keiki."
