#1 Petition on Care2
« on: May 06, 2009, 03:14:16 PM »
Just got the following email from the Care2 site:

Hi carlos,

The "votes" are in. The people have spoken - and signed. Change is happening.

The five activists whose petitions are featured below gathered the most signatures in Care2's "Yes YOU Can!" Challenge, which spanned the course of President Obama's first 100 days in office. Help these winning citizen activists make a difference today!

1st Place Winner - over 47,000 signatures!
Return abducted minor Sean Goldman to his father

Four years ago, then four-year-old Sean Goldman was abducted to Brazil by his mother. After her recent death, the man recently married to her was awarded custody by a Brazilian court. Ever since the kidnapping, Sean's father David Goldman has waged a legal battle to have Sean returned to him, as required by U.S. law and an international treaty signed by both the U.S. and Brazil. The full U.S. Congress has passed a resolution supporting David's fight to bring his son home. David's story has been featured in media outlets - radio, television, and print - around the world.

THAT is fantastic!!
History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.
 
~ B. C. Forbes ~
 
"It doesn't matter which way you cut this. If you abduct a child from a country and remove it from its parents, its other parent and its extended family and its culture, it is one of the most extreme forms of child abuse that you can inflict upon a child."

Terrrific! Now, if we can keep people motivated to help us continue the pressure on D.C. and other important entities in this case we can make a much bigger difference and BRING SEAN HOME! Thanks for sharing the news.

I have a feeling Twitter brought more signatures. Many of us are there advertising the link.

There's twitter, and also the email that went around talking about the top petitions. I think it brought more awareness to the cause.
