Originally founded by the Australian Salvation Army, International Overdose Awareness Day honors the value of every life and commemorates loved ones we've lost. This year there are many ways you can observe the day on August 31, including events in many cities. One of the best things you can do is to contribute to the naloxone access fund. No amount is too small (nor too large), it's tax deductible if you're in the U.S., and every dollar helps save lives.
