In my speech that I will be making in about a couple of weeks time, I have to persuade my classmates to join a cause . Any ideas what that cause can be?

    Well, there's no point in trying to persuade someone to do something unless you believ in it yourself! What is it that you get passionate about? Something that really gets you talking non-stop when people ask you about it. Things for me include poverty, injustice and the environment.

    Here are some ideas and causes that concern me. The Innocence Project, for assisting prisoners in the United States who could be proven innocent through DNA testing. To date, hundreds of people in the U.S. have been exonerated by such testing. One Laptop Per Child, which puts XO laptop computers in the hands of children in the global south through its Give One Get One program. Ending hunger is another important cause both in the U.S. and globally. Many organizations work on this devastating problem so no one goes hungry Bread.org gives a lot of information.

    Free Information on a global scale, reinvention of the existing economic systems, and reinstating "common" law.

    My speech class was very casual. We didn't have to speak on any "heavy" subject. I chose to try to persuade my class to adopt a cat from the pound. I also included a Power Point presentation, to show more detail. I gave statistics like the percentage of cats that are NOT adopted (you would be surprised at this number). Make sure you include "shock value," to really drive your point home. My "shock value" was this picture in my Power Point... http://www.google.com/imgres?q=euthanized+cats&hl=en&tbm=isch&tbnid=J7acRxV-gakuJM:&imgrefurl=http://www.lenscratch.com/2010/11/mary-shannon-johnstone.html&docid=EXiV0HVwdCWE_M&w=648&h=432&ei=lEhmTteUKvTp0QHRx-TyCQ&zoom=1&biw=1280&bih=622&iact=rc&dur=320&page=2&tbnh=135&tbnw=159&start=16&ndsp=18&ved=1t:429,r:10,s:16&tx=72&ty=69 So sad. I could tell, by the looks on my classmates' faces, that it worked. One girl even cried. But, that's what you want. You want your listener to FEEL something. THAT is what's going to persuade them. Good luck with your speech!
