If there was ever a year where people needed to be empowered with the tools to make a difference, it was 2017.

This year family members fought powerful insurance companies to get lifesaving treatments for their loved ones. In the aftermath of disasters like Hurricanes Harvey and Maria, people stepped up to help communities get the relief they needed. There were countless campaigns that saved an animal from being put to death or led to the passage of a law addressing animal cruelty.

These were just a few of the examples of the more than 2,100 petitions that won this year in the U.S. alone. And they won because of supporters like you.

Even the petitions that didn’t go on to become a victory this year had an impact. They put a spotlight on important issues, brought communities of supporters together, and built the momentum that makes winning possible.

Whether you started a petition or signed one in support of an issue you care about, you are the reason millions turned in 2017.

On behalf of the family, thank you for your support, compassion, and belief that together we can make a difference. Your petition or signature meant more than you may know. You gave people hope when they needed it the most and helped change people’s lives. For that, we can’t thank you enough.

We look forward to an even more empowering 2018. Together, we can turn hope into progress.

Thank you,

Amanda Luther
