Grey Priders, your support for this campaign over the last seven months has been pivotal to everything we’ve achieved so far.
Every discussion you guys have started about Grey Pride has raised awareness of the overlooked issues faced by older people across the UK. Every petition signature you have collected has strengthened our voice.
We can’t thank you enough – this really has been a campaign built from the ground up!
Well, while the Grey Pride “Clipboard Army” are busy counting the signatures gathered on paper petitions, we are going to make one last concerted effort online to boost the final figure.
On Monday 21st November (this coming Monday!) we are asking all our supporters; the backing organisations, the MPs, the celebrities and most importantly of all, the 117,000 petition signatories, to update their Facebook and Twitter accounts with Grey Pride messages.
We want to takeover these social media channels and get everyone talking about Grey Pride. Let’s highlight the campaign and direct as many people as possible to our online petition so they can officially register their support for our call for a dedicated Minister for Older People.
Helping us achieve this could not be simpler – all we need you to do is copy and share the messages below on Monday and ask everyone you know to do the same!
We will monitor our success throughout the day and post news of how we are getting on. Please be sure to report what you see happening, let us know how many of your Facebook friends and Twitter followers change their statuses and share yoru tweets with their connections.
This will be a perfect opportunity to challenge the technophobe stereotype of older people who are out of touch, and show just how many Grey Priders there are using these channels!
