SAO PAULO, Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The alcohol is still linked with party and too much fun, especially with millions of dollars spent on publicity and advertisement. But the odd part of drinking is not revealed in public: family tragedies, accidents, death. No one gets to know about it.


Concerned about the danger of alcohol, the NGO Bandeiras Brancas has created a video based in real stories to draw attention to the situation.

Laura, 8 years old, facing her dad´s change of behavior, decides to write a letter to the likely responsible person for those changes, in her opinion.

In the letter, narrated in first person, the girl reveals traumas and disappointments accordingly to her father´s descent. The girl says not only her but the whole family was suffering with his actions. She describes seeing her mother´s hunger because the father was not bringing any food home, her father losing his job and worst, domestic violence.

Her last request to the presumed friend is that he goes away and leaves them alone. At the end of the video, a surprising finish is revealed.

The ONG Bandeiras Brancas, an organization that creates communication ads in favor of peace, decided to make the action through a video. "The idea is that the video reaches the target public and alert family members, that also need help when in those situations", says Brunno Barbosa, the NGO´s founder. The video is narrated in English and has subtitled versions, in hope to reach as many people as possible.
