ILoveMountains.org Recognized Nationwide for Innovation and Impact

Saturday, November 3rd, 2007

iLoveMountains is being recognized nationwide as one of the most innovative advocacy sites on the web.

* CNET pointed to the National Memorial for the Mountains as an example of the tremendous power of Google Earth to change the real world.

* A blogger on NetSquared included iLoveMountains in his 2006 list of Best Internet Marketing for a Cause.

* In December, the iLoveMountains.org website was discussed on NPR’s Diane Rehm Show, and she posted a link for her listeners.

* Worldwatch Institute has helped spread the word by covering mountaintop removal and iLoveMountains.org.

In their article “Hi-Tech Advocacy in Action” the editors of FundraisingSuccess magazine featured iLoveMountains as one of the best examples of using the web to involve and connect with thousands of new supporters. According to the article:

Thanks to cutting-edge technology, online advocacy campaigns are not only possible, but they can bring an issue located hundreds or thousands of miles away right to constituents’ backyard in ways that direct mail can’t.

The “I Love Mountains” campaign is a perfect example of this. A collaboration by local, state and regional organizations across Appalachia working together to end mountaintop removal, a type of coal mining where the tops of mountains are removed and mined for coal, I Love Mountains is operated through iLoveMountains.org, a site produced by Boone, N.C.-based environmental organization Appalachian Voices. It uses cutting-edge technology to inform and involve visitors in their efforts to save the mountains.

How does it do this? One of the coolest involvement features of the site is the pledge sign-up. When visitors fill in their name and contact information pledging to help stop mountaintop removal, they’re taken to a “personal impact page” that displays each person who has pledged as a dot on a map of the United States. A pledger can pass the word on to friends and invite them to pledge, and then their page will chart the number of friends that have been invited to support the campaign, and the number of friends their friends have invited. The personal impact page also shows the top 10 most active participants and the number of friends they’ve passed the word on to. These names link to each pledger’s personal impact page and, from there, connect to the personal impact pages of any of the friends they’ve invited.

“You can actually see the network of your influence spreading throughout the country” Mary Anne Hitt, executive director of Appalachian Voices, says.

National Memorial for the Mountains Earns Nationwide Coverage

An Associated Press Story on the National Memorial for the Mountains printed on November 4th has been picked up by newspapers and television station websites across the country. The story was written by Kentucky-based AP Writer Samira Jafari and puts the devastation caused by mountaintop removal in a human context. The story leads from the perspective of Benny Campbell, a resident of the Kentucky coalfields:

Benny Campbell experiences mountaintop mining day and night. His bed is rattled by the blasting. Gray dust blankets his porch and car if a few days go by without rain. His electricity goes out repeatedly when the coal miners accidentally knock down power lines.

But the worst thing of all, he says, is that the mountain peaks that once loomed over his lifelong eastern Kentucky home have been flattened by dynamite and bulldozers.

“When I was young, it was a really pretty place,” said Campbel, 53, who lives in a hollow called Bull Creek near Vicco. “Now it’s just a rock pile. You can’t do nothing with it.”

The story goes on to tell how iLoveMountains.org uses new technologies – particularly Google Earth – to lift the cloak of secrecy that has allowed mountaintop removal to continue.

Now environmentalists have found a way to let the rest of the world see what mountaintop coal mining has done to Appalachia: They have started a Web site that uses the Google Earth database to enable people to see aerial reconnaissance photos of the scarred countryside.

“The point is mountaintop removal has gone on under a cloak of secrecy,” said Mary Anne Hitt, executive director of Appalachian Voices, one of a half-dozen environmental groups involved in the Internet campaign. “Unless you have the experience of flying over the region in a small plane, it’s hard to understand the scale of mountaintop removal.”
