World Polio Day - Thunderclap

What is a Thunderclap?
A thunderclap is a crowd speaking platform which allows charities and individuals to create a cause for others to support via social media networks.  The Thunderclap creates a synchronised post to all the cause's supporters at the same time at a pre-determined date and time - effectively co-ordinating one big social networking shout about the cause.

Please go here: and sign up now!

Why are we doing it?
The End Polio Now campaign is one of the largest Rotary International project's, raising funds for and awareness of... the efforts to eradicate polio across the world through immunisation.  This campaign runs all year round but is at it's peak on 24th October, World Polio Day.  All Rotary clubs are encouraged to spread the world in the run up to and on the day itself, and this is how we have chosen to do it this year.

Why do you need my help?
A Thunderclap will only take place if we get enough support, and as a small cause the minimum number of supporters available to us was 100 people!  We need everyone to a social networking account to sign up to this so that we can get as much support as possible, and handily signing up with more than one social media account will count so if you have a Facebook and Twitter account please add your support with both accounts - the more supporters we have the bigger the impact! 

How can I get involved?
You can support a Thunderclap via Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr (or all three!) without signing up for another account.  The URL for our Thunderclap is, and upon arrival you will be asked to log into Thunderclap via your Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr account in order to support the cause.  The rest of the process should be self explanatory, but shout if you have any questions.

Can anyone else get involved?
Yes definitely!  When you add your support you will be given the option to share the Thunderclap and anyone with a Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr account can sign up.  We will be asking all of our Twitter amigos, Facebook fans and fellow Rotarians to sign up too.
