A Day of Breathing and Giving

March 1st is an annual online Giving Day that celebrates our advocacy organization ANR’s birthday and promotes awareness about the dangers of secondhand smoke. ANR has been fighting for your health since 1976 when a small group of concerned local citizens who were worried about the effects of secondhand smoke on our bodies began meeting and planning.

The organizing of ANR’s early founders set in motion the smokefree movement. ANR’s work (and ANR Foundation support) plus many coalitions of people and partners helped pass a cascade of smokefree laws that has resulted in massive cultural change and improved health for millions of people.

On March 1st you can help improve the lives of the 58 million people still breathing secondhand smoke!


41% of us, or 58 million people DO NOT. There is no safe level of secondhand smoke exposure. It’s dangerous.
