ActRight offers conservatives a headquarters for competitive activism online

Friday, October 22, 2010

A new website is up and running that offers conservatives a central hub for online activism that will hopefully grow in strength to counter a liberal activism site funded primarily by George Soros.

ActRight offers a new kind of platform for online activism with an added competitive touch. Upon signing up and creating an account, which is quick and easy to do, you can donate to various conservative organizations from the National Organization for Marriage to the Susan B. Anthony List to the Heritage Foundation.

If donating to organizations is not your thing - or not enough, you can search for political candidates by name or state and donate directly to to them. Each candidate has their own page with embeddable widgets for your blog or website which come in a variety of sizes. The largest embeddable widget even includes a graphic detailing how much has been donated.

If you can't afford to donate anymore right now or this year, there's plenty of other ways the conservative activist in you can take action. You can search for and sign petitions - or if you can't find the petition you're looking for - you can create your own and then promote your new petition with easy share options for Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo and beyond. I've embedded an example petition to get you started right away.

I mentioned competition. Yes, the site automatically tracks your activism - what you've done and the actions you've taken with the causes, candidates or petitions that you support and gives you points based on how much of an impact you have made. Based on these points,  a leader board of the top activists gives credit where credit is due.

There's much more that could be said about this new site, which claims to be the online clearinghouse for conservative action. I don't want to give away all the site has to offer, it's best if you go take a look, create a profile and explore the site yourself.

That's where I'm headed right now.
