“Online Petitions Create Awareness and Can Effect Change”
Online petitions and information sharing through social media are an essential way of creating awareness and encouraging participation.
Many well writing petitions have been effective in procuring their intended changes, and more and more online petition sites are becoming mainstream.
They are an effective way to spread concern about environmental issues, human rights, and animal cruelty, as well as social, economic, and political issues and they provide a platform for people to voice their opinion. Simply stated, online petitions create awareness and can effect change.
Will your signature make a difference?
If you’re wondering whether or not your signature can make a difference, the answer is “yes”.
By signing a petition (and voicing your concerns) you are participating in the process of change. Each name adds legitimacy to the petition and is a way to demonstrate which issues matter most to you. Signing and sharing a petition with friends and family allows them to discover and support important issues also. Your signature tells decision makers the cause is significant and needs change.
We often sign one or two online petitions a day, and it only takes a couple of minutes. It’s amazing how many past petitions have been successful in effecting their intended changes.
If you’d like to help make a difference in the world, we’ve listed a few petition websites below for you to explore. You can search their site for the issues most important to you, sign a petition, and even send a one-click email to the decision makers. If you’re not already on their mailing list to receive important emails about current petitions and results about past petitions, we encourage you to do so.
