AIESEC Earth Day Campaign

it was our UMP AIESEC very first campaign in the campus...
been carrying out several meetings to discuss on this campaign for the past few weeks...
it was a real success for us...
we gained quite a lot of supports from the people who passed by our booth...
we also have friends who actually walked all the way to our booth to support us...
but definitely not my friends...
so sad to say that i have zero friend who is willing to come and give some support on my campaign...
been spreading words and videos all over the media...
but none of them even want to spare a second to bother...
i guess i do not have real true friends around uni...
sad but i shall accept this fact...

well let's just get back to the campaign...
i was supposed to be at the booth for the 2pm shift...
but since my Web Scripting class was ended so so much earlier than i thought...
so i went over to Block W to check on the members...
to see if there is anything to help out...

there was not much people at the booth when i reached...
maybe because it was still during lesson hour...
just a few students who stopped by at times to check on our booth...

i guess our zero budget booth is pretty..:)

this is our engagement tree...
painted the wordings and the tree trunk on our own...
and we actually asked around for people to chop their thumb prints and sign on it...
which indirectly means they got engaged to the environment...
where they have their responsibilities to protect the mother earth...
like the idea a lot..:)

this is the Recycling Section...
which was created by hongluan and setyen...
there are explanations in the form of words and pictorials for the people to understand better...
on what we are trying to deliver to them...

some hand-made flower decoration on the booth...
made out of used papers...
and the one on the right was sponsored for us upon the origami competition the other day...

this is the Saving Electricity Section...
created by melissa and hagar...
every electrical appliances in this box is something we use in our hostels daily...
well the air-cond and the refrigerator are only found in the international hostel...
basically we are educating the people on the amount of energy consumption that we use everyday...
and how to reduce the usage as much as possible...

there were also tiny booklets hand-made...
which contain some interesting facts on reduction of electric usage...
and one of the fact that i found so so interesting is that...
printing Century Gothic font can save 30% of the printer ink and electricity...
interesting right..^^

the Vegetarian Section...
from jiawei..serah and me...
we created this tiny little cards with myths and facts about vegetarian...
i found that there are many types of vegetarian diets...
vegetarian does not means only consume vegetables...
there are also certain types of vegetarian where people consume eggs and meats...
most of them find that this is very interesting to learn something new...
to get to get rid of the idea that vegetables equals vegetarian...

like what i had mentioned...
there were great supports from students all over the campus...
they were all willing to spare some time before their next class...
to dropped by at our booth...

maybe some of you will find that this is just a waste of time...
coz most of the things we prepared are already known by everybody...
but bear in mind people...
the purpose of having this campaign is not to purposely drag you here and crap to you...

any of you realise that the things that you know...
but you do not seem to practise them??
tend to just put all these a side and not to bother at all??
that is why we are here to not only asking you...
 to put extra effort to realise the effect of putting all these tiny matters a side...
and of course to re-encourage you people to start practising to take care the environment...
and at the same time also to educate you...

these are the people who have the heart and intention to give contribution to the environment...
it does not need you to invest anything...
it does not need you to stand for hours to listen to us...
just to want you to realise the importance and understand the purpose of us doing this campaign...

they were plenty of them who liked our engagement tree...
we even had professors and lecturers who came and supported us...
watching the 'leaves' slowly growing on the tree was so fun...
it simply means they are actually people who love the nature..:)
i got engaged too...





and when the crowd went off...
we took the free time we had to play around with the DSLR..^^
a picture of me and hagar...
she is from egypt...
and she is a very nice person...

i love this picture a lot..:)

william..me..christelle..hagar..setyen..and ramesh...

we were supposed to start packing and move to the next spot for our booth campaign...
but when we were about to leave...
there were a bunch of secondary school students who just came out from WDKU halls...
they got so interested with our booth...
and asked us to explain to them..:)
look at the hanging cards...
it was already half way moved out of the booth...

we continued with our booth campaign after lunch...
which was my shift at 2pm...
but most of them still want to stay there and help out until their next lesson starts...
it was very very nice of them...
we even had last minutes volunteer who treated ice cream for everyone..:)

these two men are pHD students from pakistan...
though the things we delivered are considered simple to them...
still they listened to our explanation with heart and patience...


and by the end of the day...
we had our engagement tree 'grew' nicely...
 a group picture with it was just an awesome ending...
the tree will continues 'growing' in the next campaign which will be held in pekan..:)

i had so much fun today...
i enjoyed carrying campaign with my lovely members...
thanks everyone for the supports...
thanks other AIESEC-er who are willing to volunteered to help out at the booth...
still it was quite a disappointment that...
my friends did not came and have a visit at my booth...
not even one... 
it was very sad indeed...
