Online Day of Action for the Great Bear Rainforest

I received this notice from Forest Ethics and thought I would pass it on to all here as well as my Facebook friends.  If you have a Facebook page please join to help take part in the online Day of Action!!

Dear Eldy,

You already heard from us once since you took action to protect the Great Bear Rainforest. That was because you’re one of more than 6,000 people who want to make sure this rare forest is protected from unsustainable logging. Thank you – you are amazing! (And double thanks if you gave the campaign a boost by emailing a friend, too.)

But the Great Bear Rainforest and the people who depend on it need a secure future, so we’re amping up our pressure by hosting an online Day of Action. 

Tomorrow, March 20, supporters will donate their Facebook and/or Twitter status to the campaign by posting a link to the Take It Taller action page as a highlighted post or Tweet.

The goal is to make your friends and family aware that only 50 per cent of the Great Bear Rainforest is off-limits to logging, and inspire them to take action to safeguard one of the last forests of its kind. It’s that simple.

Here are some suggested posts you can use (check them out on our online Day of Action’s Facebook event page too):

For Facebook:

  • Help make more than 50% of the Great Bear Rainforest off-limits to logging by taking action at www.takeittaller.ca. Then join today’s online Day of Action by re-posting this status & tell your Facebook friends to do the same.

For Twitter:

  • Help make more than 50% of the Great Bear Rainforest off-limits to logging! Take action and pls RT for today’s Day of Action http://ow.ly/9HZy5

Imagine if 6,000 supporters could get at least one other person to take action to protect the Great Bear Rainforest, all on the same day. Our numbers could swell to more than 10,000 people calling on the provincial government to protect where the spirit bears call home, and to empower First Nations to improve the well-being of their communities. And 10,000 people are hard to ignore.

By making the simple choice to donate your social media posts/status to the Great Bear Rainforest on March 20, you can help us reach our goal of protecting one of the rarest forests on the planet.

Thanks so much!

  1. Eldy,
    Thanks for getting this information to your readers. Hopefully it’ll have a snowball effect! I Twitted and Facebook’d it. ps Thanks ever so much for the Versatile Blogger Award. I will address it as soon as I catch up. Keep up the good word you send out on your blog.
