I help run social media here at ONE. Part of my job is keeping an eye on what our leaders are tweeting about, and how we might get our 849,000 Twitter followers to join – and shape – the conversation. And I need your help…
Right now, Jack Lew, the US Treasury Secretary is a key decision-maker on whether the US will commit more of our aid to the world’s poorest countries – or not. So we need you – and all your friends and followers – to tweet @USTreasury and ask Sec. Lew to #DoWhatsRight.
I’m about to tweet my message: “Commit 50% of our aid to the world’s poorest countries. We’re counting on you to #DoWhatsRight. Will you tweet right now, too? Wouldn’t it be amazing if Sec. Lew pulled up his twitter feed and saw thousands of our messages?
It’s been a super busy few weeks. Thousands of you have signed our #MakeAidCount petition. Thousands of you have sent postcards with personal messages to the White House (which is really awesome).
But it’s time to pull out all the stops. Let’s send Secretary Lew thousands of tweets this week and next week, and make sure he knows we’re counting on him to do what’s right.
I’m about to tweet. My mom said she’s doing it, and my grandma just shared it, so can I count on you to tweet right now, too? We’ve done Twitter actions like this before and we’ve seen them make a big difference, so let’s do it again.
I can’t wait to see (and count) all of your tweets!
PS – if you don’t have Twitter, you can still take action! Send a postcard to President Obama and tell him to commit 50% of our international aid to the countries that need it most.
