On January 8, Birth Defect Research for Children sent out a wire release about the petition for a Center to diagnose and treat the children of Vietnam veterans. This was picked up by several online services and the blog below appeared in our local paper.

Despite our concerted efforts to gain support for this petition, we only have 3025 signatures so far. Yet a pledge to protect dolphins has 49,121. A pledge to boycott products made of kangaroo has 17,205; a pledge to create an artic home for polar bears has 68,718 and a petition to rehire someone at a radio station has 40,368. I am not saying that these are not all great causes and I am certainly in support of wildlife protection, but why do children take a backseat to animals.
I would appreciate any thoughts you may have on how to get more signatures.
