SPG explains that, "Any citizen who gambles is invited to stop gambling for one day on Sept. 29th. If you have a loved one or a good friend who is an active gambler, urge them to participate and be their sponsor for Sept. 29th. As a sponsor, your role is to help the person stay away from gambling, be supportive and help them pursue other activities."
One of the purposes of Take a Break from Gambling Day is "to offer family members and friends a way to start a conversation about gambling with the people they love."
If you don't know someone who is an active gambler, please take a few minutes to read and sign SPG's American Declaration on Government and Gambling from the link below.
[Take a Break from Gambling Day was founded by a woman whose brother committed suicide because he became addicted to state-sponsored gambling.]
