Guys, I'm going to spend all night and all weekend on Orkut promoting the rally among our different national communities in and near DC and other places. I will also be blogging and calling everyone I know and networking. Let's all do the same! We need 30,000 at the Rally!!!!!!!!!!!

I pledge to devote 5 hours this weekend for the same!

And this time I also pledge to ignore and not to get into fights with people who tell me "Don't advertise on my scrap book"

We need more pledges!!

Guys, here's my suggestion how to go about it:
Scrap all your friends in DC/MD/VA
Scrap all your friends' friends in DC/MD/VA
Scrap all your friends' friends' friends in DC/MD/VA

Then replace DC/MD/VA with other neighboring states and repeat

I have been actively trying to promote IV through Orkut. I cant say the response has been very warm... though I am not disheartened as yet & will keep trying... I am still trying to stir the pot as much as I can, to spread the message & increase attendance at the rally....
GO IV!!!

Some of my friends in Orkut acknowledged and joined (very few) but most are pretentive.

I was happy to note that one of my closest friend on Orkut works for Cisco did the SJ Rally.

yes scrapping works, unfortunately from Seattle, getting people to come has become more challenging, but people living in D.C please see if there are more people who know/don't know or don't have time.. encourage them, spread the message in grocery stores, blogs, emails, speak up hand fliers, driving distance members, family and friends we need as much support. Go IV Go IV..

Why not call the IV members? I am willing to call the IV member in GA. At least if we can get the 50% of the IV member, that would be a good number.
I called couple of them yesterday.

Phone campaigns have been going on in full swing. A lot of "SO CALLED SMART IV FREE RIDERS HAVE GIVEN FALSE NUMBERS, SOME NUMBERS WERE GOING INTO GOVERNMENT AGENCIES". I guess all these poeple realize that life just does not revolve around "selfishness", to achieve something you have to give something.

WOW.

I know many IV'ans have written that people should join the rally. But I will make another attempt.

Oe people in GC line wake up!! It is you who has the destiny of your GC in your hand. If this rally fails, you will not find any unselfish organization like IV. IV is trying hard to alleviate the cause of immigrants and trying to get some relief. But remember IV is made of you. If you do not take care of yourself, this organization can not go on for long!!!
After that you can only say if I supported the IV rally I would not be in this situation!! And that would be tooooo late.

My dear friends its your call.

This rally is legal. Very much legal. If you have any doubt you can look around on net and you will find testimony from prominent attorney on the legality of this rally.

This rally will not spoil your GC application. Again there is testimony from prominent attorney on this issue.

Last call that's all....

I have been posting on orkut too & scrapping people. Looks like most of the people are not INTERESTED in participating in something that may ease them of their problems.
I guess they are waiting for OTHERS to do so... I don't care... I will still continue scrapping & keep trying.
At the end of the day, I know I will be satisfied with myself that I at least tried to make a difference to the whole scenario...
