NIMCO, Inc. Encourages Red Ribbon Week Activities


Over the next few weeks leading up to Red Ribbon Week 2013, NIMCO will be sharing some activity ideas on our blog that teachers and community leaders can use to help students get excited about Red Ribbon Week. Many of these ideas can be incorporated in your school leading up to Red Ribbon Week

Our third entry is entitled: Plant The Promise 

Planting flowers is a symbol of hope, and a great way to involve both children and adults in your Red Ribbon Week campaign. It can be a fun educational time for adults and youth working together to create something that will continue to grow after winter months have passed. Most bulbs that are planted during October will bloom in April, during National Alcohol Awareness Month.

• Plant Flower Bulbs at school or in the community. Traditional flowers planted during this event are tulips and daffodils.
• Allow students to personalize garden markers so they can show off their drug-free commitment.
• Red Balloon Launch with drug-free message & school address on paper inside the balloons. Hopefully a school or individual will find the message and respond back.

TODAY’S MESSAGE

“Planting today’s seeds for a stronger drug-free community.”

Head over to our website for more Red Ribbon Week information. We also have a page dedicated to National Plant the Promise week where you can purchase tulips and bulb planters so your school can participate in planting the promise.
