The Forget Me Not Foundation which was founded by Royal and Nancy Bidwell, is an organization designed to create awareness of drunk and impaired driving in the State of Alaska. I am a former Alaskan and still visit the state occasionally. I have been aware of the immense problem with drunk and impaired driving there.

Royal and Nancy and their volunteer staff have devoted their time, money and efforts to educate and inform Alaskans about the cost in human lives that drunk driving has caused. I am especially aware of their book "Soul Shaking Grief" which gives accounts of accidents caused by drinking drivers and the victims both deceased and living who are impacted. The organization used high school journalism students in producing this book which literally changed the students' lives as they read the accounts of those affected.

Royal and Nancy have also been advocates for the families of victims of drunk drivers as they offered support by attending court cases and law making sessions where stricter laws were being proposed that would discourage drinking drivers.

I would highly recommend this organization as worthy of any campaigns they apply for. Their hearts are in their work and they work unceasingly. Alaska is fortunate to have them!
