A Letter A Day
We are launching a new campaign called "A Letter A Day for Syria". Every day, before you sleep at night, send a letter to your congressional leaders and president Obama urging them to help the Syrian people. This is the most effective campaign and will get the most results. Our goal is to have 2 million letters sent to congress by Memorial Day 2012!
Register now with Congress.org website. This will save all of your information, and you can quickly send a letter every day without having to login, edit your information, and reuse it.
They count how many letters are sent on each topic and that influences the decision makers. "Senator, we got another 15 on Syria."

Fifty-six leading conservative foreign-policy experts wrote an open letter Friday to U.S. President Barack Obama calling on him to directly aid the Syrian opposition and protect the lives of Syrian civilians.
"For eleven months now, the Syrian people have been dying on a daily basis at the hands of their government as they seek to topple the brutal regime of Bashar al-Assad. As the recent events in the city of Homs-in which hundreds of Syrians have been killed in a matter of days-have shown, Assad will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on power," wrote the experts.
