Social media is an easy way to say something, but it’s a difficult way to be heard.
Millions of messages are posted everyday so it’s easy for something to fall in the forest.
That’s why we are asking for your help – to help create a giant Thunderclap and help raise important awareness ahead of Mouth Cancer Action Month!
What is a Thunderclap?
A Thunderclap is a crowdspeaking tool that helps people be heard by saying something together.
It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of all other social media posts.
How will it work?
This morning, we have created a powerful Thunderclap message to encourage others to be more active at self-examination:
“I am supporting #mouthcanceraction by pledging to be Mouthaware. A quick check could save my life from mouth cancer.”
You can support our Thunderclap any time before 01 November 2017. Then, at midday on the first day of Mouth Cancer Action Month, this message will be posted from your social media account.
Why a Thunderclap for mouth cancer?
Social media is an effective way for us to reach people with positive messages of mouth cancer awareness.
By targeting online groups, outside of a healthcare setting, we can help educate and inspire those people who do not regularly access healthcare or speak to health professionals.
By posting our message at the same time, we can raise awareness of mouth cancer, increase the number of people who are acting on any unusual changes in their mouth, and ultimately saving lives through early detection.
How can you support it?
You can support our Thunderclap by visiting our campaign page: Thunderclap for Mouth Cancer Action
It is able to be shared on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr and can be supported until 01 November 2017.
You don’t need a huge number of followers for a successful Thunderclap.
It’s all about common cause that we can work towards together. It’s also a tangible way to measure awareness of mouth cancer.
It takes less than one minute to support our Thunderclap, but it can make such a positive difference.
Support our Thunderclap today and help us change the landscape of mouth cancer.
