October 1, 2016 is the First Day of Hillary. Pictured are Secretary of State Hillary Clinton perusing e-mails and making calls, B4H Executive Board members Alex Mohajer and Rance Collins (bottom left) and B4H members Alicia Tucker, Robert Carnival, and Guest (bottom right).

It’s October 1st, 2016.

You know what that means.

The #12DaysofHillary have officially arrived. Consider this your official Bros4Hillary “October Surprise!” October 1st shall forevermore be known as “The First Day of Hillary.”

Well, maybe not. But the first, most obvious, and most impactful way you can contribute to this campaign is to MAKE CALLS.

Many people feel timid about this time-tested and true campaign tool, known in political circles as “phonebanking.” Isn’t it awkward to call some stranger in some far off land and have a – gulp- conversation with them? Millennials in particular have shown in various studies that they are averse to that old-fashioned phone call stuff. But it is such an effective way to communicate with voters all over the country and the campaign has taken all of the anxiety and guess work out of the process. It’s easy. And all you need is a computer and a phone.

You don’t need to go to your local campaign office. You don’t even need to get into your car to help. All you need is access to a computer and a phone. It’s that easy.

So how do you do it?

  1. Go to: https://www.hillaryclinton.com/calls/
  2. Click “Start Calling.”
  3. You’ll be asked to login. You can use your Facebook account, or register a new account (it will only take a minute).
  4. Once you’re logged in, you are provided phone numbers and a script, and you’re ready to make calls!
  5. The site provides training if you need it, and always has help if you need it.

Volunteering is so important. Every person you call is another person who may not have heard from the campaign. You can do it from anywhere! The gym, the comforts of your own home, while working on your tan lines, and even in certain prisons.

Spread the word! Share this article with your friends, and tweet #12DaysofHillary #1stDayofHillary #MakeCalls and #Bros4Hillary.

Stay tuned for The Second Day of Hillary, tomorrow!
