We are trying to spread awareness of the silent but deadly disease and it is our first step in creating a Hepatitis B program for our annual mission trip to Vietnam. ALSO, Andrew Garcia (the American Idol and youtube start) will be there along with US (the youtube couple). I heard they are pretty popular! Oh, we also have raffles and FREE FOOD! The event is free for everyone. One last thing! Do you think a couple members of VSU is able to be a part of our teaser video.
