    erm...we can have some fun while getting donations but let's not forget our main objective for Photoaid - to help the victims of Cyclone Nargis

    Since I was not around for the first weekend, any new ideas how to increase the exposure or improve the workflow further so that we can gather even more donations in shorter time with less people?

    Are the "Tags" useful or not? Need me to print somemore?

    Where is the bottleneck? printing station?

    Any photo got mixed up? Any feedback from the donors?

    How to attract more pple to have their photo taken by us?

    If we really have enough equipment and manpower, I will suggest setting another shooting station facing esplanade. To encourage donors to take more photos and donate more $.

    This is just my observations when I was there helping on last Sunday.

    (1) Didn't have obvious signboard/banner stating we are doing a donation drive. It make it hard for PR volunteer as we need to explain to the plp and they thought we are commercial photographer trying to rip them of with $10 per shot.

    (2) The traffic is very heavy in the early morning but we dun have enough PR plp in the morning.

    (3) It's very windy there and it always blow the hair and cover the face of those who wanted to take a picture. (anybody got a good suggestion to resolve this?).

    The second location (on Sunday late afternoon) maybe better as it avoid the waterdrops from the Merlion but lose the advantage of making the people walking near the tent to check what the fund raising is about. Maybe can overcome with a banner like okashiilo suggested.

    Then not enough materials on the fund raising especially the write out. Most of the write out which were printed the day before were in slightly bad condition and hard to show people due to the strong wind. Can we consider lamination or use something to clip the material for easy reading? Can we also have more photos to show people or put around the tent?

    Think we also took more time to do the set up in the morning.

    How about putting a big psoter / banner ...

    "DONATE TO VICTIMS OF CYCLONE NARGIS &
    WE WILL THANK YOU WITH A FREE PHOTO"
