The stench of deadly air will begin to life from New Jersey on April 15 when New Jersey's Smoke-Free Air Act takes effect nearly a decade of debate, discussion and false starts. During the decade or so that New Jersey discussed smoke-free air legislation, the American Heart Association and the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids estimate that nearly 19,000 people in New Jersey died due to the effects of secondhand smoke. The killing is over, and it's time to celebrate smoke-free New Jersey and clean air on April 15 with a Smoke-Free Air Act party, says the American Heart Association. Request a free American Heart Association Smoke-Free Air Act party kit by calling the American Heart Association State office at 732-821-2610.
The American Heart Association is encouraging people to request the party kits and go with friends, coworkers and family members on April 15 to restaurants, bowling alleys, diners, nightclubs and other venues that were formerly "smoking allowed" and have a party, thanking the establishment for going smoke-free. Let the establishment know that you are spending money there with your friends or family because the venue is now smoke-free and healthier.
The first 100 callers to the American Hearth Association New Jersey State office requesting a New Jersey Smoke-Free Air Act party kit will receive a free American Heart Association "You're The Cure" tote bag filled with ideas for a fun, interactive and healthy smoke-free party to celebrate April 15. The Smoke-Free Air Act party kit includes tips for a successful Smoke-Free Air Act party; sample invitations; "thank you for going smoke-free" coasters; "thank you for going smoke-free" cards; information on smoking cessation programs to help you kick the habit and American Heart Association brochures such as There's No Filter For the Truth (about smoking); Quit Smoking For Good, Nutritious Nibbles and Tips for Eating Out.
