We can’t achieve our 100 Day Plan without your support and help. Nobody knows your candidates and the reality of living with arthritis better than you.
We are asking you to do just one thing – ask your candidates to register to be an #ArthritisChampion.
You can take action now with these easy steps:
Send a message
Go to Contact your Candidates. With one click you can email a message to all candidates in your constituency asking them to be an #ArthritisChampion.
At your doorstep
Ask your candidates to register to be an #ArthritisChampion at your doorstep or at a local event. Ask them to take a selfie/photo holding the “I’m an #ArthritisChampion” card. With their permission, you can email this photo to email@example.com and we will display it in the Arthritis Champion Gallery.
Share your #ArthritisChampion selfie/photo on your Facebook and Twitter. Use the hashtags: #ArthritisChampion, #GE2016
Ask your candidates to take a photo with their own phone also. They can post it to their social media and send it to their local press. Remember, one in five people across every constituency has arthritis so this is great cause for your candidates to support!
If canvassers call, give them an “I’m an #ArthritisChampion” card. They can ask their candidate to take a photo and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org . They can also upload the photo to their own social media.
You can also get together with your Arthritis Ireland Walking Group to organise an Arthritis Champions Walk. Download Tips and Advice here.
