The federal election is well underway and the Conservative party has been burning through the biggest election war chest in the country. We cannot outspend them, so we have to be resourceful.
The Leadnow community has created one of largest email lists in the country, and a fast growing community organizing network in key ridings.
Now they are building one of the largest social media networks in the country so they can reach millions and counter Prime Minister Harper’s multi-million dollar spin machine in a cost-effective manner.
This network is called the Amplify Network.
Here’s how it works: during key campaign moments LeadNow will send you an action alert through email asking you to share something on social media. This could be a tweet targeted at a politician with a hard-hitting question, an informative video to share on Facebook, or a compelling image encouraging people to vote.
These “social shares” will change depending on the moment and on the campaign and sharing it will take only a few seconds.
The idea that by working together, LeadNow can reach millions of people across the country and encourage them to join us in moving Canada forward for an open democracy, a fair economy and a safe climate. All it takes is for us to share our messages, values and actions as one voice.
Social media is one of the most powerful communication tools in the world. It can make and break politicians, help spark revolutions and bring funny cat videos to all of our screens.
Now it’s time for us to harness that power and use it to hold government accountable and defeat the Harper Conservatives.

Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
