Site


We are so happy to announce the launch of our newly re-designed Care2.com and thepetitionsite.com! It’s been months in the planning, and after many late nights, our team has launched a beautiful new site. The site is much easier to navigate and really represents the many aspects of how we are trying to help our members make a difference in the world. Check it out!

As you might’ve heard, Care2 and ThePetitionSite will be “going green” at our data center this weekend.

By upgrading our facilities, we’ll be able to improve the site’s performance while reducing our carbon footprint at the same time. How much of a reduction? The equivalent of 30,149 gallons of gasoline consumed!

The other bit of good news is that ThePetitionSite will remain available during the upgrade. There will be some limitations however — you will still be able to sign petitions, but information will not be pre-populated in the forms.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, and if you have any questions or concerns, you should contact Care2’s Customer Support.

Once the upgrade is complete, we’ll continue to make a difference — except faster and greener!

I was up very late last night as we rolled out a bunch of new features for the PetitionSite. It was touch-and-go at a few points as the engineers squashed a few bugs that showed up once the code was on the live site. There were lots of advocacy actions to check over, to make sure everything was okay. I finally left the office at about 2am.

We’ve released new advocacy, pledge, and petition templates. We also released a much-improved tell-a-friend feature, and a tool for promoting actions on social networks. The next release will focus on new tools for activist petition authors.

Hello! Thanks for checking out the new Care2 Campaigner blog. This blog will serve as a space for the Care2 campaign team to post our thoughts and ideas about various issues, petitions, campaigns, etc. that we care about, and hopefully introduce you to some issues you will care about as well. Please comment and let us know what you’d like to see! Hope you enjoy reading.
