About Kick Butts Day
Frequently Asked Questions About Kick Butts Day
What is Kick Butts Day?
Kick Butts Day is a day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco at more than 1,000 events across the United States and around the world.
How does Kick Butts Day work?
As a teacher, youth leader, or health advocate, you can hold a Kick Butts Day event or activity for students on March 20, 2013 that can mobilize them and raise awareness about the problems of tobacco use in your school or community.
To get started with your event, you can:
- Search our Activity Ideas database for great Kick Butts Day activities,
- Order an Event-in-a-Box: ready-to-use materials shipped to you with directions on how to turn the contents into a great Kick Butts Day event, or
- Come up with an idea of your own. Once you've completed that event, tell us about it and share your pictures and videos with us; the Kick Butts Day Team is always looking for new, creative ways to tackle Big Tobacco.
How do I register my event?
Click on the "Register Your Event" link — found at the top of every page on the site — to begin the process.
You will be prompted to login to your Kick Butts Day account. If you don't have an account, you can easily create one using an email address as your username, or you can use an existing Facebook account to log in to KickButtsDay.org.
Can I register more than one Kick Butts Day event?
Yes. After you register your first event, you can register additional events. Simply follow the "Register an Event" link above and log in.
How does the Facebook login work?
In addition to allowing users to create an account and log in to KickButtsDay.org using an email account as a username, we're offering users the option of using their Facebook account to log in and out of KickButtsDay.org.
- New KickButtsDay.org users: You can either use your email address to create a username and password for your account, or you can click on the Facebook "Log in" icon to connect your Facebook account to KickButtsDay.org.
- Current users who already use their email address to login: If you have already logged into KickButtsDay.org using your email account, you can connect that account to your Facebook account by clicking on the Facebook icon on the screen, so long as the email address you use for KickButtsDay.org is the same as the email you use to log into Facebook.
What if I'm unable to hold a Kick Butts Day event on March 20, 2013?
Every day is Kick Butts Day in the fight against Big Tobacco. You can use the Activity Ideas database on this website to organize events and take a stand against tobacco on any day of the year. However, the more events across the country that we can coordinate on March 20, 2013, the more likely we will be heard on the national stage.
What kind of resources can I find in your activities database?
Our activities database includes activity examples that you can use or adapt. There's TONS of room for creativity. Combine activities, use one of our highlighted visuals to enhance your event, or center your event around a looming policy issue in your town or state.
Use our quick search to pick the activity that suits your needs. You can sort by age range, budget, or time it takes to plan the event.
We will be frequently updating the activities database, adding fresh ideas leading up to Kick Butts Day! Be sure to check back and find the latest and greatest activities!
In the past I have ordered a hard copy of the guide. Why can't I do the same this year?
We are no longer offering the Kick Butts Day guide. Instead, you can search our activity database and print out the activities that you're interested in.
How long has the Kick Butts Day program been in existence?
This is the eighteenth annual Kick Butts Day.
How do I contact you if I have general Kick Butts Day questions?
