Vote for OWD at Change.org’s Ideas for Change

December 16th, 2008 · No Comments

We need you to vote for OWD’s proposal at Change.org’s Ideas for Change in America project. The project is a citizen-driven effort to identify the best ideas to effect the change the Obama Administration has promised.

Here’s how the competition works: anyone can go to www.change.org/ideas and submit a policy idea, discuss with others, and vote on the best ideas from around the country.  Just before Inauguration Day, change.org will host an event in Washington, DC and hand-deliver the top 10 rated ideas to a representative of the Obama Administration.  They’ll then mobilize the collective energy of the millions of people on Change.org, MySpace, and partner organizations to ensure that each winning idea gets the full consideration of the administration and the 111th Congress.
We identified several ideas that we thought resonate with OWD values, and we even added our own, “Recognize OneWebDay as National Day to Celebrate and Promote the Social Benefits of the Web.”  We hope you will sign up and vote for our idea, check out the other great ideas we found, and maybe post some of your own ideas.  And, please, help us spread the word!
