Sharing is nice, we learned in kindergarten, and here’s where it can really count. It’s super-easy to share our grassroots network with your friends and family, so their voices can help support CVD legislation too.
We seriously need to reach the people who understand something about cardiovascular diseases and/or stroke – and, think about it, who do you know who does not have a connection somehow to someone directly impacted? The people in your social networks care about you, and you can help inspire them to care about our mission.
Simply post our video on your social media with this text, or something similar of your own:
Please help me build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke, through grassroots advocacy. It’s for us and our loved ones. Please join and support the cause – I’ll appreciate it personally. You could easily wind up helping someone you know. It’s fast, and it’s easy to be an active part of the American Heart Association’s You’re the Cure network: www.yourethecure.org
And you know how quickly a post disappears down the queue …please bookmark this and consider re-posting periodically so more of your network has a chance to respond.
You can also click the Share button that pops up on our website after you’ve taken action on an alert to effortlessly push the message to social media. Every time!
Please don’t think this is not important just because it’s not driving a particular policy. Our impact as a grassroots network is only as strong as its number of active voices: the people willing to take the time to help drive messages to their legislators.
Share to help our mission! This act helps significantly to make our network a force to be reckoned with.
