2. Take a photo of you, your team or your club with the #WeCanICan hashtag

You could

 

JOIN THE WCD THUNDERCLAP CAMPAIGN

 

Thunderclap is a tool that facilitates the mass dissemination of messages via Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr by simultaneously posting to the accounts of those who support the campaign. This is a great way to give the campaign visibility and increase the chances of ‘trending’ on social media platforms.

 

For our Thunderclap to go live, we need the support of a minimum of 500 individuals for the message to be broadcast.
