WHY WE GO PURPLE

I am just like that girl in the Purple shirt who told you she was a sober student. Thank you for validating the choices I have made and to give me justification to keep going. – Age 16

Driving through town and seeing the purple ribbons all around brings an immediate sense of hope in my heart. – Community Member

The students in our Herren Project Club have become like my second family and pushed me to want to motivate people. I want to change people’s lives for the better and the Go Purple Herren Project movement has meant more to me than I ever would have imagined. – Age 17

Today in your presentation you brought up the sober students and it made my think of myself. Thank you for giving me a reason to stay sober and to hear my friends say that people who don’t drink are just as cool or fun as everyone else and you don’t need to change them. – Age 15

Herren Project has provided me with strength, hope and meaning. My brother is an addict, and the Herren Project Club has allowed me to get involved to support those who are addicts along with bring awareness of addiction to my campus. – Age 21

Herren Project and going purple has helped me make good choices, stay away from drugs and alcohol. It has also given me many opportunities and new friendships with great people. – Age 17

I am that guy with the water bottle at parties and I don’t do drugs or alcohol. When it comes to decision-making you have changed me in a positive way. – Age 16

Herren Project Club was a great way to get involved with my high school and my community. I was given the opportunity to reach out to other organizations as well as learn valuable life lessons. – Age 18

Our High School students have been visiting the Junior High lunches to promote the first Herren Project Club meeting that will take place next week and 52 students have already signed up!!! – High School Teacher

I am the student who stands up and tries to help people to stop smoking weed or stop doing any drug or even drinking. I just want to help everyone I possibly can, and I know I can be that voice. – Age 16

The students in our Herren Project club have become like my second family and pushed me to want to motivate people. I want to change people’s lives for the better and the substance-free movement has meant more to me than I ever would have imagined. – Age 17

What does going purple mean to me? Making right choices and saying no to drugs and alcohol is what Chris Herren whispered in my ear …..Always be you! – Age 12

Herren Project showed me that no matter where you look, there’s a group of people willing to lend a helping hand. It’s not about telling people that drugs are bad it’s about choices. It’s about showing you that there is another way. No one can do it alone. We learn that when we replace ” I ” with “We.” – Age 17
