START A PETITION
x
Mar 16, 2008

   Since I've been a member for 3 months now, I've signed about 400 petitions at Care2.  I think Care2 is the greatest website on the net.  I know some people think signing online petitions is a waste of time but it isn't.  If a petition is created correctly and is specific regarding an issue, and then given to exact, certain individuals or groups that can effect or influence the change that the petitioner wants, then I think they're very effective. 
   I've been a passionate nature advocate for 12 yrs. now, and one of the most effective means of change are handwritten (typed) personal letters to people in charge of the issue.  This beats form letters hands down.  I've sent them to editors of papers, magazines, politicians, officials, etc. and almost always receive replies back that are favorable.  I firmly beleive the squeaky wheel gets the grease.  Those that shout the loudest, the longest, get heard.  Be intelligent in your letters, be specific about what you want and what are stating.  And never ever say or state anything that you yourself are not sure whether it is true or not (factual or not).  Because someone will find it out and prove you wrong and your credibility will be instantly ruined in it's entirety.  So always state facts and truths.  That way nobody can shoot you or anything you say down (well, they can try but it just bounces off you).
