email correspondence to Bill O’Reilly,


We honor my deceased alcoholic sister (46) with a different approach. Our mission is to make Laura’s memory matter. Kids who don’t drink or drug before 21 (documented by Joseph A. Califano Jr.’s How to Raise a Drug-Free Kid book) significantly reduce their possibility for addiction; hence our Sobriety Pledge. Since our May 2006 website launch, we have received 85,000 webpage views averaging 2 minutes each.

Our 2014 Sobriety Pledge goal is 250 … 21 to go. If you mentioned our Pledge on air, I believe we would double our goal. We have raised $2,700,000 with $1,600,000 in matching funds since Laura’s 6/13/1999 death for 8 Portland Oregon addiction prevention and recovery programs. Our Sobriety Anniversary webpage currently affirms 950 anonymous champions who collectively celebrate 13,700 clean and sober years.

The Sobriety Pledge is our most important work, and I am requesting your considerable center-of-influence assistance. Congratulations on your life-changing television, public speaking and multi-bestseller writing work. You are a stand-up guy, and this world is a better place because of folks like you.

Sincerely, Brad Mersereau;  Portland, Oregon.
