11th Anniversary of September 11th Is Coming...

Sunday, September 2, 2012

Hello Everyone! In case you didn't realize the 11th Anniversary of September 11th is now a little more than a week away.  I wanted to take the time to tell you about a few things that are going on and hope that many of you will join me.

I've been involved with Project 2996 for a few years now and I've been pretty busy working on something for the 11th Anniversary of September 11th.  Below is a presenation that I've put goether that tells you a little bit about Project 2996.

For the 11th Anniversary we've created a Project 2996 group board at Pinterest.  The idea is pretty simple, we want to have a pin with a picture for all of the September 11th victims.  The pin should also tie into the various Project 2996 online tributes that have been published over the years.  Below is a screenshot that I captured of the board yesterday...

Project 2996 has also started a campaign called "Calling All Teachers" with the idea of getting teachers to involve there students in learning about the victims of September 11th. If you're a teacher or you know a teacher why not have a look into this campaign?

What is needed?

After the last review of Project 2996 tributes, there were still around 1,300 victims without tritbutes.  Have a look at "the list" to see if there is somethere that you'd like to write a tribute about.

Signup at Pinterest (if you're not already a member there).

Let us know your user name (you can let us know at the Project 2996 website or our Facebook page or leave a comment on the board in Pinterest).

We really need people that will create 'pins'. You can have a look at the pins that are already posted to see how they should look (see here for more information on pins).

I've already created pins for most of the Pentagon victims and I've created several pins for the various passengers and crew of the different flights.  We'll really need pins for all of the victims at the World Trade Center.  If you'e already created a tribute, it would be great if would create a pin that links to your tribute(s).  If there is already a pin existing, why not add a comment with a link to your tribute?

You can also create your own boards for September 11th and 'Repin' what is in the Project 2996 group board.  This would really help a lot because it helps generate Traffic and Traffic is the name of the game in the internet today. Don't be shy in sharing what you're doing in your social circles.

Thank you to everyone in advance and I hope that we make this a very memorable 11th Anniversary.
