Interested in making a difference right away?
Taking a cue from down under, here are some ideas from the White Ribbon Foundation of Australia for other ways that Ambassadors can make a difference:
Promote public interest by talking with colleagues and friends about the campaign i.e. about what the campaign is involved in, how important it is to change community behaviors and attitudes, etc.
Talk about your role as an Ambassador in as many situations as possible and in particular when attending public engagements
Host meetings, social events, awareness raising activities to mark White Ribbon Day
Approach local councils, men’s organizations, sports and services clubs, etc. and offering to be a guest speaker, and encourage them to buy and distribute White Ribbons
Facilitate presentations in the work place, in recreational settings, etc. that address the issue
Participate in media opportunities wherever possible, e.g. direct interviews, writing articles, utilizing personal media contacts to extend the White Ribbon campaign message

Dear [Friend or Colleague]
I have joined an important campaign and would be delighted if you would join me as well in promising to help find a solution to eliminate violence against women.
On March 6, 2014, Jane Doe Inc. will host the seventh annual statewide White Ribbon Day Campaign to call upon men of good heart to stand up and be counted as allies against violence against women. As you know, sexual assault and domestic violence occur at alarming rates, and we are all affected. We need more men to speak out and pledge to be part of the solution for ending violence against women.
Here’s all you have to do:
1) Take the pledge
2) Wear the White Ribbon on March 6th
You can find out more about the Massachusetts and International White Ribbon Campaign and other plans for Massachusetts on campaign website: http://www.janedoe.org/whiteribbonday.
Thank you for helping.
