What is “Supporting”?
Supporting a Thunderclap campaign is like signing a petition but with the added power of simultaneously sharing a message. You and every other supporter are standing up for an idea with the power of your voice.
How do I support?
Choose between your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account to grant Thunderclap permission to post a message on your behalf. That’s it! If the campaign reaches its support goal by the deadline, Thunderclap will automatically post your message and all other supporters' messages at the same time.
A note on privacy
When you log into Thunderclap using your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account, you’re allowing our platform to share a single message on your behalf. That’s all. We use the absolute minimum permissions possible to post a message on your behalf. The platforms we integrate with sometimes include additional permissions that we do not use and we will not post anything from your friends' accounts.
The purpose of the Rally for Medical Research and the
National Day of Action is to call on our nation's policymakers from all 50
states to make funding for National Institutes of Health (NIH) a national priority
and raise awareness about the importance of continued investment in medical
research that leads to MORE PROGRESS, MORE HOPE and MORE LIVES
Aside from supporting lifesaving research, NIH funding sustains a vibrant and
innovative 21st century U.S. economy and supports jobs. Thanks to the $2 billion increase to the NIH budget that Congress
approved for FY 2016, the U.S. saw an additional economic gain from investing
in the NIH of $4 billion compared to 2015. In 2016, NIH funding
and jobs generated by that funding produced $64.799 billion in new economic
activity compared to $60.717 billion in 2015. Nineteen states saw an economic
gain of $1 billion or more.
Join us to encourage Congress to continue to act now!
