The eight most powerful leaders in the world are meeting for their yearly fireside retreat, the G8 Summit, at Camp David this week…and we need to work harder than ever to get them to hear us.
So we’re taking our message to the street…literally.
We worked with some friends to create the ‘Street Tweeter’ – a tweet-fed robot that will take your message to the streets in the run-up to the G8 so our leaders can’t ignore us. But we need your help to make it work.
Here’s what to do:
Write a 40-character message (including spaces) in your own words to inspire and encourage G8 leaders to act now to break the cycle of hunger and poverty
Tweet your message to @ONEStreetTweet (not on Twitter? You can submit your message in the form on this blog post here)
Please do it now!!
If your message gets printed then we’ll snap a photo of it and tweet it back to you
So get creative! Make your 40-character message personal, inspiring, attention-grabbing – whatever you want to say to the G8. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Thanks for all you do,
New Media Coordinator, ONE.org
