Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Maybe--But Not Sure What to Organize
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
None - except that I drive a hybrid car.
What excites you about this campaign?
I am passionate about ending our reliance on foreign oil, and creating high-paying eco-friendly jobs for the American people.
What do you want to do to help?
I'm not sure. I am a good communicator - public speaking and writing. I've also been published in multiple periodicals, and I would like to use my experience to reach people who are not aware of the Pickens Plan.

I have found that petitons are the best way to spread the word AND sign up supporters.
Here is HOW TO TURN THE PLEDGE INTO A PETITION!
I find it easiest to take one pledge, cut off Boone's lines under the pledge and add a sheet of lined paper under the pledge instead. I put NAME - ADDRESS - EMAIL across the top and fill in the first line to set the format. Most are more willing to sign where others have already done so, rather than the single pledge at a time approach. Everyone understands a petition.
I ask if they would "sign this petition in support of T, Boone Pickens energy plan to get us off of foreign oil?" Hand them the clipboard so they can read it. I do not require the signers to give me their email if they are reticent - don't let that be a deal breaker - some just do not want to give it.
Check out the 100CLUB group page to see how others have accomplished the task. (it is the first goup on my page) When you send/fax in 100, let me know, we will gladlyinvite you to be a member of the 100CLUB. Your leadership on this will inspire thousands!
There are over 150 people in the pledge challenge that I know of right now. Surely, there are many more that I am unaware of, as it is in many greetings. Those 150 willl bring 15,000 new members. If each brings just 5 friends, these 150 will be responsible for 75,000 new members.
This is the approach that works best for me - I tried many. Hopefully, this will encourage you to take the challenge, too. CAN YOU HELP?
When will we ever have a golden opportunity like this again?
Please congratulate your friend, Dianna Brown, for being invited to the 100CLUB - for those that fax/send in over 100 signed pledges! Dianna also drives the welcome wagon frequently. She is a Pickens hero!
Glad to have you here. Hope you can get others to join this historical effort. We must turn up the pressure. Is there anyone out there that still thinks it is a good idea to borrow 700 billion from China to pay the Middle East for our oil? every year? It is laughable....if it were not so damn stupid.
With a little bit of effort from all of us, we can make the numbers really grow!
PLEASE DONWLOAD A FEW PLEDGES and get them signed.
We all want to get off of foreign oil. We all want the leadership to hear us and do this. As has been clearly demonstrated this week, they will only act when forced to by circumstances and a cry from the public. WE NEED TO MAKE OUR CRY INTOLERABLE. The only way to get this done in our very small window of opportunity is to BUILD THIS ARMY.
PLEASE, tap into that passion you had the very first time you saw this plan. Rmember the WOW! moment you had, when you thought.... THIS COULD REALLY HAPPEN. and let's JUST DO IT! We are now a group of almost 1,400 friends. Mostly passionate folks, the real do-ers. If everyone got just 10 pledges this week signed, we could boost our numbers from just this group by 14,000 new supporters. THOSE ARE BIG NUMBERS! We only added 1,600 new members to the site in the last week. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET THIS DONE.
DO WE HAVE JUST A LITTLE BIT OF EFFORT IN US?? This is not taking up arms, but it is OUR REVOLUTION. We must fight for this. The good news is it is very easy if you just try.
Keep them with you, and remember to talk about it. It is time to engage. Please let me know you are in!
Welcome and THANK YOU for joining Pickens Plan. Here is how you can help.
EMAIL A LETTER TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVES
the creators of this site have given us the ability, with little effort, to send a letter to our Representatives in Washington and Governor, too. PLEASE GO TO "THE PLEDGE" (at the very top of this page on the blue header). On the top of the pledge page there are three rectangular buttons- two blue, and ONE RED BUTTON, that reads "CONTACT CONGRESS". Fill in the short, standard form. Done!
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE PLEDGE, get them signed and faxed back to Boone. This is how we build our numbers fast! Be a leader, be a part of the "100 CLUB", by faxing in 100 signed pledges. Let me know when you are done and I will add you to the list.
YOU CAN HELP BY BRINGING 5 FOLKS TO JOIN the site today, so that we can build a voice big enough that Congress will finally have to listen to us, instead of the lobbyists and special interests, who will certainly try to derail this historic effort.
THERE IS NO TIME TO DELAY
…to wait and see…or to see if someone else will step up to the plate. It is time for US to roll up our sleeves and go to work. Right now momentum is working in our favor, but if gas prices retreat, the public will forget the pain, and our moment may be lost.
FOR MORE INFORMATION
Check out Pickens "August Call to Action"- for a course of action! Here is an informative video "Topeka, Kansas Town Hall Meeting": http://www.pickensplan.com/news/2008/08/04/video-of-the-topeka-town-hall
PERSONAL ACTION OPTIONS
We need to do more than “preach to the choir”. Sharing ideas with each other is encouraging but that will not 1) increase our membership nor 2) influence public policy. If you know someone in the press or someone who blogs - get them to cover this. Ask those in the public eye to support this plan.
A GROUP FOR EVERYONE
Check out the many groups for Solar, CNG, your area, etc. Connect, learn and share. We grow stronger with your input. If you don't see a group that speaks to your interest, then start a group of your own.
PLEASE feel free to FRIEND ME so we can keep in touch.
Thanks again for joining this historical effort. WE CAN DO THIS!
