START A PETITION

Feb 2, 2007

Dear friends and friends of friends!
What's wrong when nearly 7 million people in nearly a year only has the capacity to come up with 1,115 signatures to a very worthy petition (from the start 11 May 2006) - IT'S UNBELIVABLE that there are so few signatures when we are so many... it's my friend Sophia Dalle who has put it up and it makes her exasperated to think people don't care at this site, either, ... she just wrote something like giving up Care2 , if...
is it that bad that there aren't signers enough around... can it be?
- or doesn't the word spread... then this should be the right site to reach 7 million caring people, shouldn't it?
....or tell me what you believe is the thing that goes wrong, please!
... don't you believe in petitions, or what's the problem?
I think we really should try to find out!

Let's also help Sophia to help... PLEASE, if you haven't yet, give this petition and the children it wants to help ONE MORE CHANCE... Love, peace, action!

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/733307731?z00m=9411074

And I'm also really serious about these questions, and I'm asking you sincerely, as a friend among friends: why do so few sign when we are so many - PLEASE comment with any idea or guess that comes to your mind that you think could help explain that this petition and others as worthy, put forth by trusted Care2 members, don't receive signatures... if we do something in the wrong way, we should correct those ways, shouldn't we ...

Hi, I signed the petition. Don't be frustrated, even though there are so many people they probably only get a chance to visit once in awhile. Also have you looked at how long the full list of petitions is? I sign on average 5 a day and I will never get through them all. So the best thing to do is to keep forwarding to your friends of friends and makes blogs that will help more people to see. I know my friends and their friends send me a lot of petition links to sign in my messages and those are the ones I usually get to first. Keep your head up- the process can be slow but at least there is a process on this wonderful site.

also these petitions arn't especially legal no name adress etc and few coun tries take any notice anyway especially countries like romania that do not have the money or the staff to do a better job....time for free is more important then a signeture

Thanks for replying, Aimee and Jade, I appreciate it - and I doing very much the same way as Aimee, but I'm inclined to feeling like Jade, that is: perhaps, with just a limited amount of hours in a week to give to make a difference, perhaps it might be more efficient to give my time in a concrete project in real life, closer to me, than spending days trying to promote an internet-peition and only increase the signatures by 10-50 during these days - which has happened to me repeatedly... and usually a great many other Care2 members did the same amount of promotion work simultaneously, so those few increased signatures weren't even added because of my efforts ... but let's keep our heads up, right, and also let's be creative and find out efficient ways to work - I'm sorry to say no one has yet during these last days reported to me one single succesful petition initiated by a Care2 member
even if I've called out loud for even one - for us to learn from...
Green stars for you both for caring and giving your thought! All the best wishes and hope to see you around! :-)
