My group has decided to spread awareness on Cystic Fibrosis. One of my group members came up with the idea after she did research on the illness. Seeing that she was invested in the topic we decided to go ahead with her idea and so far things have been going well. We set up a facebook page, LinkedIn, twitter and tumblr account hoping to use these sites to raise awareness. We also want to use Second Life and came up with a fun and creative way to promote awareness. We got our idea from the popularity of the ice bucket challenge and want to start our own challenge. We will start by passing out roses to 5 different people in SL and ask them to do the same, hand out 5 roses to 5 different people and then challenge those new people to continue the challenge. By people willingly accepting and passing out roses in the name of CF we hope people will start to wonder what exactly CF is and why it is a major issue and deserves attention.
So far my contribution has been setting up and managing the Twitter account. Also, throughout this week I plan on sending out roses in SL to people all over so I can do my part in supporting CF.
For those of you out there interested, please go ahead and follow our Twitter accounts as listed in the hyperlinks above. Your support and acknowledgment would mean a lot!
