Party safely this summer.
Summer is here, and that tends to mean that many of us are
more likely to come out to play.
These extra forays out into the world may mean an increase
in our use of alcohol or other drugs.
A good way to give yourself a bit of a break as well as support

FebFast is a yearly event which encourages people to sacrifice
alcohol for the month of February whilst raising money to support
organisations who are working to reduce alcohol and other drug
related harm in young people.
We know that to many of us, February is Gay Christmas, so for
those of you who have a month of partying planned how about
switching to non-alcoholic options for just one night?
Calculate how much money you saved by not drinking alcohol
and donate it to FebFast (You can do this via the ACON website
It’s great for your body and mind and it’s good for your com-

Party Safely with the Big Heads gives you the chance to have a
great night out without leaving your lounge room.
You can become either Becky or Bill Big Head for the evening,

Party Safely with the Big Heads will be launched in early Febru-
ary so keep an eye out for it on partysafely.org.au .
If you’re out and about over February you may also run into Bill
and Becky Big Head, make sure you go up and say hello and get a
picture with them.
You can also keep track of what the Big Heads are up to on Fa-
