If you support same-sex marriage...
...then why not pop over to allout.org, who "want to deliver the world's biggest Thank You card to the White House on Friday" by way of sending "a dramatic global message of support." Just follow the link at the bottom of this post. They're aiming for 100,000 signatures. They're now at 44,124.
President Barack Obama just became the first US president in history to voice support for marriage equality. In an interview today, he said "it is important for me personally to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married".

But before the backlash, before opponents try to kill the momentum this creates, we need to thank him and celebrate this moment. I just signed a massive Thank You card, ready to be delivered straight to the White House. Will you join me?
It is critical that we show support for our leaders when they stand for what is right, not only for what is easy:
