You aren’t alone, you have an entire army of support

Er, okay, it’s more of a street team for support.

The Quit Doing It street team is scheduled to be at The University of Denver May 18-22 and is available to help spread The Cigarette is Dead movement in communities around the state. The street team will work with schools and county health departments to help spread the word by posting banners and posters at pre-determined locations, leaving The Cigarette is Dead branded lighters and coasters at bars and restaurants, and spraying chalk stencils on pre-approved sidewalk locations.

The street team is also available to meet with tobacco coalition groups, public tobacco forums and student groups to explain The Cigarette is Dead’s purpose and goals. If you would like more information about the street team’s community outreach and availability, please contact Collin Varner at collin@sharpideas.com.

In Greeley, the movement is spreading like wildfire. Weld County Health Department isn’t just posting flyers either. They’re energizing local businesses to help spread the movement in fresh ways. From pizza boxes and coasters, to bathroom stalls and smoking cans, Weld County has really made The Cigarette is Dead their own localized rallying cry against the cigarette.

To mobilize the campaign, the Weld County team has been working with a billboard company, local businesses (including Pizza Hut, Papa John’s and Starbucks, to name a few), University of Northern Colorado, Aims Community College and others. They sent press releases to secure local media coverage and worked with their tobacco-free coalition to get the word out.
