Give the Gift of a Designated Driver

Keeping you and your shipmates safe

The holidays are fast approaching. Visiting family and friends is what many Sailors have planned. The one must have this holiday season and every day between is a designated driver.

Last year there were more than 380 incidences of driving under the influence, or DUI, and more than 2700 drug and alcohol reports Navy wide.

Keep the holidays merry and bright. Give the gift of a designated driver this year. The Navy Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Program Office (NADAP) "Keep What You've Earned (KWYE)" campaign has tools for every member of the Navy family to promote responsible drinking this holiday season.

While the season can be a time of great joy for our Sailors and Marines and their families, it can also be one of the most dangerous times of the year for alcohol-related incidents. The "Give the Gift of a Designated Driver" gift cards and online pledge offer three easy steps to promote responsible drinking decisions throughout the holidays and the entire year.

1. Take the pledge to be a Designated Driver (DD).
2. Choose at least one night from Thanksgiving through Jan. 1, 2017 to serve as a DD.
3. Print and give a gift card to friends or family, who can redeem that gift of a safe ride.

The printable gift cards are located on the Keep What You've Earned - Designated Driver Web Page. The campaign also provides messaging to use on social media channels to promote the pledge and responsible drinking this holiday season.

More information, including videos and graphics to share, can be found on the NADAP website, NADAP Facebook page, NADAP YouTube channel, and NADAP Flickr account.
