Tweet to help Amnesty win $100k for human rights!

April 23, 2009

Today, please send Twitter messages supporting Amnesty International to actor Hugh Jackman @RealHughJackman.  The actor is asking fans to help him choose a charity worthy of his $100,000 donation and we hope you agree that Amnesty’s work to defend human rights and protect lives should be it.

“The more passion shown for your charity the better! Get the support of your friends and teach them the importance of giving” wrote Jackman on Twitter.

2.2 million people around the world already show their passion by fighting with Amnesty to free prisoners of conscience, abolish the death penalty, stop violence against women, and ensure that every person enjoys full human rights. Help Hugh Jackman see how vital human rights are for all by submitting your own tweet to @RealHughJackman!

Here are some examples to help you get started:

The students were seized at midnight. Fists and boots pummeled dreams.  Hope was almost lost, until at dawn, Amnesty International arrived.

Maybe if there’s pressure, like from Amnesty International, we turn them over to a judge. If not, they’re dead. – Words of a real torturer

No matter if you locked up in Burma or Gitmo, AI will campaign on your behalf
