The Jubilee Project releases its teaser video for “Why I Sing,” a song by Rooftop Pursuit. They created this music video, which will be released within the next week, to raise awareness and money to fight Hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is a preventable disease, especially since a vaccine exists. However, approximately 350 million people in the world, over 1 million people in the US alone, are infected with chronic hep B. 60-80% of primary liver cancer, potentially leading to liver failure and death, worldwide is caused by chronic hepB. Over half of those infected with chronic hepB in the US are Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and one in ten Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have hep B. It is the only disease where you will find such a huge racial disparity.
This is how the fundraiser works. If you would like to support the cause financially, you can sign up to become a sponsor of the music video, called “Why I Sing.” Each sponsor will pledge to donate 1 penny (or more) for each view the video receives in the month of March. So if the video ultimately receives 1500 views by the end of the month, each donor will donate $15. If the video receives 3000 views, each donor will donate $30, and so forth. The sponsor can also choose to cap the amount they donate, but we ask that they make this clear when they first sign up to become a sponsor. You can sign up to sponsor the video by emailing email@example.com and including “Why I Sing Sponsor” in the subject line. You can sign up to become a sponsor up until the close of the fundraiser, which is the last day of March.
Furthermore, you can support the fundraiser and cause by helping to spread the “Why I Sing” music video throughout the month of March. Remember that each sponsor will sign up to donate at least 1 penny per view. So each time the video is viewed, a certain amount of money will be raised (ie. if we have 12 sponsors, 12 cents will be raised for each view). Thus, you can help raise money simply by watching the video and sending the video to as many friends and contacts online.
