To do this we set up a promo board in school with our website’s name and link. Then we placed standees on the tables in the cafeteria, again with a link to our website. However the real work was just about to begin.
Armed with a bag full of homemade chastity bands, my 5 group mates and I set off into the campus and started approaching people. “Hi would you like to be chaste?”, “It’s Pro-Life month! Want a wristband?”, “Don’t chase, be chaste! Free chastity bands!” were some of the more common statements one would hear from us. We spent most of our free time in school handing out wristbands and encouraging people to visit our website.
At home we would make our status messages on YM the link to our website. On facebook we posted the same link on all our friends’ walls. We even sent out group messages to our yahoo groups inviting people to visit our website.
By the end of the week we had given out all of the chastity wristbands that we made and in turn received a considerable number of replies from our commitment page in our website. No one refused a chastity band but some persons sent us negative remarks from our website. However it was very heartwarming to discover that the positive comments far outnumbered the negative ones. Also a lot of people sent in their commitments to stay chaste until marriage and to not use artificial birth control methods.
When we were first assigned this project my group and I thought it would be an impossible task or at the very least a really big hassle. How were we supposed to tell our peers not to have sex until they were married? Well the project turned out to be a success and the response we got was overwhelmingly positive. On top of that my group and I really had a lot of fun setting up a website and making chastity bands and posters. At the end of the day I would say mission accomplished. Don’t you think?
