January 25 JRYC Meeting

Hey everyone! In our last meeting we reviewed other non-profit organizations and determined what made them so unique. We analyzed their strengths and weaknesses, and what we want to incorporate into our campaign and website. Next, the group discussed our annual B-Inspired Contest and decided it was time to start discussing prompts, advertising, and prizes. Our goal this year is to get prizes such as the Beats by Dr. Dre, Warriors tickets, ipod shuffles, giftcards, scholorship money, and use Jackie Chan for advertising.

Next on the list was proclamations, which we are hoping to get from 60 cities. We want to target cities with high asian populations for maximum effect and outreach. Surprisingly enough, the JRYCs found that many cities were actually not cities. It was a great way for some of us to brush up on our Bay Area geography. Anyways, this time around we want more than just a proclamation, but to have cities engage in activities that will help spread Hepatitis B awareness, such as wearing ribbons or green colors or attaching jade ribbons to lamp posts.

Finally, during Hep B Week we brainstormed ideas such as Battle of the Bands, Texas Hold’ Em tournaments, and personal outreach events that will be held at schools.
