Dear Advocates Students & Alums,
Below is information about a paid internship opportunity (whether you do it
for credit or not) from a former Advocate who asked me to pass it along to
all of you.
It's at CAMPAIGN FOR TOBACCO-FREE KIDS. I went to the web site
(http://tobaccofreekids.org/) for a brief look. It had a sobering statistic:
"901538 kids have become regular smokers in 2000.
288492 will eventually die from their addiction."
and then a motto:
"Tobacco vs. kids--where America draws the line"
