Every day, 24 people in MA die due to tobacco! Stage a Drop Dead demo in your school or community to let people know how many lives are lost due to this deadly product.
STEP 1 - Location, location, location: Choose a busy area and time to stage your event (like your cafeteria or a downtown area). Get permission, if you need, from the appropriate adults.
STEP 2 - Choose your look: Wear the same color shirts to get noticed and create a visual statement! For example, everyone can wear all black or 84 t-shirts.
STEP 3 - Drop dead: At your chosen time and place, gather together to drop dead. One person should yell out "Drop dead!" and all 24 youth will (gently!) fall to the floor together.
STEP 4 - Deliver your message: Shout statistics, promote the info table, hand out The 84 Promo Cards or ask people to take action (make sure you know what you want them to do!).
STEP 5 - Get attention: Take pictures and submit them to local media, or invite them to attend your event and cover it!
STEP 6 - Report back:Post pictures and a description of your activity on your Chapter page on The84.org to get points and attention!
Note: 24 people are also needed to participate in the Drop Dead demo.
