New Approach Oregon has a campaign running on Thunderclap right now, and I encourage everyone to join it. I love social media activism, because it doesn't cost any money! Broke bloggers unite! What is Thunderclap? Below is an explanation from Thunderclap:
Social media is an easy way to say something, but it's a difficult way to be heard. Thunderclap is the first-ever crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. By boosting the signal at the same time, Thunderclap helps a single person create action and change like never before.
You don't need a huge following for a successful Thunderclap.
A user with 200 Facebook friends could amplify her message better than someone with 3,000 friends. It all depends on your cause's voice and shareability---and how much your friends are engaged. Thunderclap has already reached millions of people. Check out some of the successful projects on our homepage!
Now that you know what Thunderclap is, go sign up! I am joining with my Facebook and Twitter, and encourage everyone else who has one to do the same. It's time to end marijuana prohibition in Oregon.
