I’ve been working on two causes at causes.com. The first one was The Anti-Anti-Vaccine Campaign. The intention was and is to encourage people to challenge anti-vaccine propaganda that shows up on their Facebook newsfeed. It’s still alive but I haven’t worked out how to promote it very effectively. The people at causes.com said it was too negative and appealed to too small a segment of the population for them to add it to their featured causes. I still think it’s worthwhile and I’ll come up with better ways to get the message out there sooner or later.
The second cause I’ve named The Immunization Initiative. It’s taking a more positive spin. I’ve started by promoting the idea that getting a flu shot is not about avoiding the flu, not really. It’s about not passing the flu on to someone who might die of it. This cause is working better. I started with a pledge. I added a quiz. Then I added a poll. The poll has been voted on by almost 600 people. It seems that something is working.
So today I came across this video. I’ve added it to the cause here.
Please let me know what you think of all of it.
