With the countdown to probably one of the biggest choices Americans are going face in the years to come, the Presidential Elections will be here in no time. In an effort to get the word out for people to vote for their future, Declare Yourself1 partnered up with some of Hollywood’s stars to get the message across. In this case, they did well using “reverse psychology”:
A couple of bits that stood out for me are the ones from Jonah Hill and Sarah Silverman. Comedy is comedy. It’s just bound to get laughs but at the same time, tell the truth. “Truth in jest” right?
Anyways, GOVOTE! Not only does it give your thoughts more weight when debating things ranging from the Economy to Global Warming, but it also allows you to say “YES” when asked in the middle of the debate, “did you vote?”
Voter registration deadlines begin this upcoming Saturday, October 4th. Go do it now before its too late. It’ll only take a couple of minutes to register. Remember, don’t complain if you can’t even exercise your right to vote. I hope that helps.
Only a couple more days till November 4th, Declare Yourself produced part 2 of the campaign:
Declare Yourself is the national nonpartisan, nonprofit voter initiative aimed at registering America’s 18-year-olds to vote in the 2008 primaries and general election. DeclareYourself.com is your place for news and information about the candidates and issues, answers to your questions about registering and voting, and an easy-to-use online registration tool. Declare Yourself will give millions of first-time voters an active voice in their democracy & prove that they are a force to be reckoned with.
Voting takes place on January 27, 2009. Google will be picking the top 100 ideas, of which 20 semi-finalists will be selected through public voting. From there, Google advisory board will then select up to 5 final ideas.
After the final ideas have been picked, Google will bring them to life. They will commit $10-million to implement the projects.
I like how Google is doing this. Hopefully, its successful enough that not only a lot of people conceive great ideas but also help the World. If any, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if those 5 or so finalist show up on TED Talks.
More details available at project10tothe100.com. Good luck everyone! Let’s change the World positively.
