The Idea

Our idea is to use the New York City Public Transportation System to raise awareness about the famine and drought in the Horn of Africa. Our slogan is "70% of the Earth's surface is covered in water. Why aren't 13 million people getting their fair share?"

The Specifics

Brooklyn, home to over 2.5 million residents, is the one of the best places to raise awareness about the Horn of Africa drought, famine and exodus. Brooklyn is a progressive, diverse place, with people who want to make a change in the world. We will use the $5,000 to create bus advertisements with our slogan on it. Having our "Fair Share" graphics and slogans on buses will be raising awareness on wheels. We will reach 50,000 people hourly, and inform them about the situation, thus motivating them to make a change.

Love the idea of Fair Share--very cool! I see an earlier commenter suggested an interactive element and I was thinking something similar. I think it is truly important to plant the awareness seed but also really important to prompt action--I would love to be able to act on the spot and text $1 to an address/account listed within the add. I wonder if you guys might partner with a water-bottle company to make water bottles with your Fair Share slogan and raise funds to further your cause. See, that's what's so great about your idea; it is something that can grow and grow and grow! Good luck!

This is a great idea! I think you should add a QR code (one of those barcode type things that people can scan with their phones) that leads people to a site with more info.
