Please bear with me as I ask for support with Thunderclap for the second time. Unbelievably, my first effort at a Thunderclap failed, despite attracting 216 supporters with a total social media over 400,000. This was because I had set a target of 250 supporters and after failing to reach this number, the Thunderclap was not activated. This is so frustrating as I spent many days trying to boost the total .
The new Thunderclap can be found here:
According to Wikipedia, Thunderclap is a platform that lets individuals and companies rally people together to spread a message. The site uses a model similar to crowdfunding sites such as Kickstarter, in that if the campaign does not meet its desired number of supporters in the given time frame, the organizer receives none of the donations. This is referred to as “crowdspeaking”, as Thunderclap and its rival site Daycause use the same terminology.  Backers are required to copy the original message in tweets or social media posts.
Please find below an important Thunderclap that we should all get involved in to help #SaveWILG.
This is a vital and easy way for people to get involved with the campaign. Please encourage everyone you know, to take part and spread the message that we all want to save WILG, and deserve to have our voices heard.
The more pressure we can put on the Welsh Government, the better. We want to flood social media, and hope you will be able to spare one minute to help us achieve this aim. If this action succeeds, there will be future thunderclaps held.
Unfortunately, Thunderclap no longer allows targeted messages to prevent individual accounts being bombarded unfairly.
The message that will be shared across Twitter and Facebook reads as follows:
Welsh Labour need to listen to their members and Save WILG for those with high care and support needs across Wales.
Anyone wishing to add memes or postcard photos to their social media accounts, can find plenty via my website or by simply contacting me via the contact page or on social media. I can’t make it much easier for you 😊
