THANK YOU TO PEOPLE WHO COMPLETED THE CHALLENGE!

WHAT IS IT? 

Help amplify the Catholic voice on climate change by taking the Five on Five Challenge. On AUGUST 5, reach out to 5 people to sign the Catholic Climate Petition either online or in person.

PRIZE

If you get 5 people to sign the petition,  we’ll include your name on the “Five on Five Challenge Page” and send you a link to a special thank you video message.

THE GOAL

If everyone in our networks reaches out to 5 new people, we can bring in almost 50,000 more signatures to demonstrate global support on addressing the climate crisis.

SOUNDS GREAT, HOW DO I DO IT?

  1. Before August 5 IDENTIFY 5-10 people to reach out to  (always good to shoot a little higher) .
  2. Figure out HOW you are going to contact them. Will it be through text, email, or a Facebook message?
  3. DEVELOP your message.  You can share our Facebook banner of the day, use one of the messages below, or make up your own.
  4. On Wednesday, August 5, PRAY AND THEN CONTACT your people! Send out your initial ask, and then later on in the day FOLLOW UP with a personal text or phone call.
  5. Once you get 5 people to sign the petition, fill out the form below with the names of the people you recruited. We will add you to our “Five on Five” webpage which you can share with your friends and family. We’ll also send you a link to a special thank you video from our team. The best prize, however, is the satisfaction of acting in solidarity with communities around the globe on climate justice.
  6. Want to go bigger? Invite 5 of your friends before August 5 to join you in the 5 on 5 challenge
