The Spawn Safely campaign with our (almost!) Alaska famous salmon icon is the ANTHC HIV/STD Program's oldest running campaign that was launch prior to the very beginnings of iknowmine.org. There's rumors in our program history that it existed even before our first online presence! The campaign materials have covered from t-shirts to totes from date night kits to lanyards. Our most well-known swag for the campaign is our ever popular "Spawn Safely" shirts. We no longer have the shirts listed on our website, but if you keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Tumblr you might be lucky enough to win one! For providers and those working in sexual health in Alaska, please contact us about Spawn Safely shirt donations.
