HOW CAN I GET MY CLASSMATES TO TAKE THE PLEDGE?
1. Check out our posters
and print the ones you like to hang up at your school. Or make your own posters and flyers.
2. Set up a table at lunch period or during advisory with pledge forms
and the facts of tanning to get classmates to sign the pledges.
3. Share our two videos, the new Exposed
and Tanning is Out
during an assembly, advisory, home room or at a lunch or free period. Or send the link to your friends.
4. Make an announcement during school about the program and tell them how much money your school could win.
5. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
to see if there is a speaker available to visit your school and talk about their experience with melanoma (no cost to you). You can also request that our speaker or volunteer brings a facial scanner to show students the damaging effects if UV rays.
6. Show your classmates the facts of tanning
- they will most likely want to sign the pledge!
