We invite you/your organisation to kindly pledge signatures in support of our petition.
All you need to do is download the banner template, print it out, fill in the number of signatures you want to pledge (1000, 10000, 100000), take a photo of it and send it to us!
We will publish your pledge photo on our Asia-Pacific Youth Network website. We will also disseminate press releases to our local and international press contacts.
Please view the detailed procedure for pledging below.
1. Commit to a significant number of signatures based on the following numbers: 10,000, 100,000, 1,000,000. Large organisations are encouraged to commit to pledges in the thousands.
2. Print and take a photo of some of the key members of your organisation holding up the banner (Download Pledge Banner template in powerpoint or JPEG format) with your organisation name and committed pledged number clearly shown. If you are printing the banner, a proposed minumum print size is A3, or if you would like to make a large banner, a proposed minumum size would be 2.5m in length by 1m in width. We will be able to do the layout for you once you can confirm the number pledged.
3. Email the photo to us. We will publish it on our Asia-Pacific website as well as our campaign facebook account. Your organisation is encouraged to place the Religions for Peace Arms Down logo on your website.
4. We will publish a press release on this and you would be requested to forward it to your local press as well. If you have any press coverage, please also forward that to us and we will put it on our international website.
5. Signatures can be collected via downloading this signature sheet (download this petition sheet too) or via internet using this link. Please forward this link to your members. Once you have completed the signature collection, please inform us and we will send a follow-up press release.
**All signatures collected must be by 31st August 2010. We will be gathering all the signatures from around the world and in October, Religions for Peace is planning to present the results of our campaign and signatures to the UNSG (Ban Ki-Moon), the permanent members of the Security Council, as well as to Heads of State and Members of Parliament.
