LOUIE LLAMA'S OUTREACH PLAN 2002 -2012 "As A CARTOON hero in my book, I fight to save kidnapped children. In the real world, I fight for children's rights to grow up drug free. It's serious stuff. School children can get hooked at an early age. Could they be your children or your neighbor's? As most everyone knows, Cartoon characters have both entertainment and public service powers. Two prime examples are: Mickey Mouse and Smokey Bear, reespectively. With the public's support, I have a plan to use cartoon powerto do the job. My 'smart ads' program would deliver TV pevention messages on street and prescription drugs. These messages coild also target childhood obesity in children which would support ongoing prevention program fpr children in America."

Marketing must be performed by the publisher, SuperAmerican Books. The publisher, along with Lnaguage Americas. opted to do read-ins for school kids, and to motivate them to be drug free -- rather than making book sales.

BLOG "MY NATIONAL OUTREACH PLAN TO FIGHT DEALERS ANDPRESCRIPTION DRUG ABUSE BY CHILDREN. " It's based on my drug Pprevention work. This requires team support to get the job done. I appeal to you to join my team and help my campaign.The funds are needed to meet overhead expenses, and to seek a Congressional grant for a three-year trial program. The grant would be used to produce and distribute TV spot ads with prevention messages targeting both street and prescription drugs for school kids. Distribution of ads would be through ad agencies.The spot ads would be created by a focus group including members of the P.T.A., Language Americas's staff, invitees, parents, and children from participating schools."

PEOPLE'S Cover Story June 16, 2008. ACTRESS Jodie SweetinHooked on METH? === Jodie Sweetin, the former child star on Full House, became addicted to METH while in high school. She battled the addiction to METH for years. Luckily, Jodie won her battle. Now married, she enjoys a new life with a beautiful child. Across the US today, there are many thousands of children and dozens of potential child stars who are abusing illegal substances with, perhaps, no possibility of recovery and returning to a normal life. However,with support from the entertainment sector and the media, Louie Llama's "outreach" program on drug prevention would touch school kids, families, and the community-at-large, as follows:
LOUIE LLAMA'S "SMARTADS" HOW WOULD THEY WORK TO HELP KIDS? His "smart adds" would be developed partly by and for kids in elementary and middle schools. They'll target children with creative and common sense messages and show how to defend themselves against obesity or drug dealers offering them free candy-coated meth or coke to get them started on addiction. We'd apply comparable forumlas for prescription drug abuse.Final messages may make use of professionals and ad men.
