The Tyler J. Smith Purple Project is coming to Northeast Community College’s Cox Activities Center Theater on Thursday, November 5th, 2015 at 11 am. Kali Smith, from Bellevue, Nebraska, will tell of how she lost her son to synthetic drugs.

At the age of 18, Tyler J. Smith committed suicide after consuming a synthetic drug which was sold at a local gas station. Since his passing, Kali founded the Tyler J. Smith Purple Project to spread awareness about the dangers of synthetic drugs, and to prevent another life from being lost. The Purple Project strives to promote hope within communities and empower all young people to make better, educated choices.

The Purple Project has partnered with the Live Wise Coalition, the Bellevue Drug Commission, and Safe Kids. They give presentations to schools and church groups, while working closely with law enforcement and State and Federal lawmakers to change laws to protect our young people.

As a little extra bonus, fleece blankets will be given to the first 75 people! This large throw blanket will keep you warm during those cold winter nights that are right around the corner, or be great as an emergency blanket for your car! Super compact and will fold up inside itself to stay nice and clean when you need it!
