Review for Foundation For a Smokefree America, Playa del Rey, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In the mid 1980's more than one in four Californians smoked cigarettes. Today in 2011 it is dropped to one in ten. The Foundation for a Smoke Free America helped spearhead this effort, increasing productivity in the workplace while helping to keep a tab on runaway health insurance costs - saving billions. What is even more attractive is the increasingly "global face" this organization is projecting into areas like the European Union and the Middle East where 29%+ of people still smoke cigarettes. It's all about education, and in this organization's case, giving it the expanded capacity to act on a more global scale.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a longtime resident of California.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would give them more help. Patrick Reynolds has, so far, been a virtual "one man band" in this organization's war on cigarettes.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I've been a proponnent of non-smoking and have done my part by having quit 3.5 years ago.
