Red Shoe Key Chair for FASD

In 2013 a dedicated self-advocate, RJ Formanek, decided to wear red shoes to stand out, be noticed, and start conversations around FASD. Red shoes have since been adopted as an international symbol of FASD advocacy.

This 3 inch Red Shoe keychain allows you to start conversations of your own and is a great reminder of the strengths of people with FASD and the need for advocacy.

Funds raised from the sale of this item go to support the work JJRT does in supporting children and youth with FASD.



What is FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders)

FASD is a brain injury that can occur when an unborn baby is exposed to alcohol.  It’s a lifelong disorder with effects that include physical, mental, behavioural and learning disabilities. These can vary from mild to severe.

FASD is the leading known cause of preventable developmental disability in Canada. The number of people who have FASD is not known in Canada nor anywhere else in

the world. This is because FASD is difficult to diagnose and also because it often goes undetected.

However, based on studies conducted between 1985 and 1997, an estimated 1% of Canadians (360,000 people) have FASD. More recent studies from the US and other Western European countries of first grade students estimate that between 2 to 5% have FASD.
