Great Book Giveaway 2022

FREE Book Giveaway!


Through the generosity of The Constance and Jay Mazelsky Family Fund, we are offering several books about FASD FREE! 


Connie and Jay Mazelsky have established a fund to make leadership investments in organizations with the potential to have major impact in the field of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).  Although fetal alcohol exposure has been known for decades to cause lifelong, permanent brain damage and birth defects, as a cause it has remained very much in the shadows. Early donations from the Mazelsky family fund include supporting Dr. Christie Petrenko’s work on FASD interventions and clinician training at the University of Rochester’s Mt. Hope Family Clinic; the Disability Roadmap documentary films produced by Dan Habib, Inclusive Communities Project Director at the Westchester Institute for Human Development, New York; and NCFASD Informed, a leading organization to promote FASD training for professionals and supports for families and individuals with FASD in North Carolina.


To receive a book, you must live in North Carolina.


To help spread information and understanding about FASD, please share your book with others who will read it to understand those with an FASD.
