Join the Gift Responsibly Campaign & Bring Awareness to Your Community!

October 22, 2021 – November 15, 2021 all-day
As the holiday season approaches it is important to remember that lottery tickets are not a suitable gift for those under 18. The Problem Gambling Network of Ohio (PGNO) and the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) encourages you and your organization to participate in the Gift Responsibly Campaign to promote responsible gift-giving during the holidays and year-round.
Register for the campaign by Friday, November 5th to be included in the NCPG’s press release which will be issued on December 1st. Visit https://bit.ly/Gift-Responsibly-signup to sign up for the campaign.
The Gift Responsibly Campaign is a great opportunity for you to engage with your local lottery retailers. When planning your outreach efforts, you can use the free materials provided by the campaign or create your own branding based on the campaign’s guidelines.
