I have organized a few events behalf of Mozilla Bangladesh community up until now. But this event is very special for me because the day before yesterday I have organized my first Mozilla Awareness campaigns in my University.
Leading University is one of the most promising FSA recruitment institute in Sylhet division for Mozilla Bangladesh. But it is sad that only a few volunteers there are familiar with Mozilla Mission and philosophy. So, In last week club meeting we LU FirefoxClub has planned a campaigns for this Summer ’15 semester, which started with the Mozilla Awareness event to aware contributing volunteers as well as to attract NEW FSAs and encourage people to share what makes them say #FoxYeah! and turn that into content for the #FoxYeah hub .
We fixed a date and propose it to the University proctor body. After getting permitted by the University proctor and Head of the CSE department at first we LU FirefoxClub has started MozAwareness Booth at 18th June from 9am to 2pm. It was really great and had a massive response from the Leading University students.
They were so pleased to know about Mozilla and Firefox Student Ambassadors program. About 300 students visited our booth. In booth we talked about Mozilla and it’s philosophy, Firefox Student Ambassadors , Firefox Os, Firefox for Android and Webmaker.
Who wanted to join in Firefox Student ambassador program, we arranged for signup where almost 150 up students signed up and almost 50% of them were from latest batch. We showed them Firefox OS developer preview device. Lots of new registred FSAs downloaded Firefox for Android.
Every new registered FSAs were given cool Firefox stickers and Firefox tattoos. All the new registered FSAs took selfies with cool Firefox and #FoxYeah banner 😀 They were very much exited in Firefox Student Ambassadors program and Webmaker.
At 2pm we closed our booth and at 2:30pm we started our second session which is Mozilla Awareness seminar. 70% new registered FSAs were join there. I explained there about Mozilla Mission and philosophy and FSAs mission.
Then I showed all of them whatcanidoformozilla.org website and told everyone to visit this site and start contributing which area of contribution they like most. Then I talk with them about #FoxYeah spring campaign and showed them some cool content and video from #FoxYeah website.
Then Tushar Chakraborty brother shared with us to his last SuMo Bangladesh meetup experience. He also showed how we can contribute in Mozilla location service and Mozilla Support centre. Then he planed to create a SuMo Team and MozStumbling squad in our FirefoxClub.
After this MozAwareness campaigns, It is for sure that on any future events of Mozilla we will get huge attendees 😀 And I think these booths have been helping us out with more and more contributor engagement.
At last I want to give Thanks to volunteers for making the event colorful, They did an awesome job while communicating with the visitors about Mozilla.
