IDRAAC NGO is hosting a fundraising event that I’ll be attending at SkyBar on July 18th (ps. day of my birthday, never mind :P). What is special about this event is that it will combine social media with a party for a good cause.
IDRAAC is using social media to advertize for the event, and the colors of the poster are the colors used on the Facebook website. In addition, when you buy the tickets, you are advised to like the Facebook page first, so it seems that there will be a surprise at the event since the poster says that it is an interactive event using social media for better social well being, hence “The Social Experiment” title.
IDRAAC (Institute for Development, Research, Advocacy and Applied Care) is a non-profit NGO dedicated to mental health in Lebanon and the Arab World.
Its mission is to conduct and promote research on mental health as well as raise public awareness about this issue. In addition, IDRAAC offers trainings and implements community programs and services in prevention and intervention for at-risk groups.
IDRAAC is located in Beirut, Lebanon and is affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology at Saint George Hospital University Medical Center and Balamand University, Faculty of Medicine.
