Dear Mark,

124,000 signatures in just a few days — Thank you!

Burger King is feeling the heat, and today, we’ll make sure to grill BK on Twitter. 

Burger King’s executives and investors are gathered in Kissimmee, FL, in part to roll out a new marketing campaign: the #WhopperChallenge. This is the perfect opportunity to publicly tell BK’s decision-makers that it’s time to go deforestation-free.

Can you join the Twitter mass mobilization? Please click on the tweet to share it with your followers:

Want to use your own language? Just make sure to use #WhopperChallenge in order to jam Burger King’s marketing.

Thanks for all that you do,
Hanna, Fatah, and the team at SumOfUs

P.S. If you don’t use social media, please forward this email to your friends to show how together, we’re pushing Burger King to end deforestation in its supply chain.
