Join the Smart Irrigation Month Thunderclap campaign

Smart Irrigation Month is almost here, and the Irrigation Association wants to spread the message of water-use efficiency to more people than ever. To do this, IA is hosting its second Thunderclap crowd-speak campaign.

Thunderclap is a platform that allows organizations to promote a specific cause and increase its social reach through Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Individuals who join the IA Thunderclap campaign donate their social media accounts to send out the same message at the same time as their fellow supporters.

This year’s Smart Irrigation Month Thunderclap message is: “Happy #SmartIrrigationMonth! Join the cause & help protect our global water resources. Every drop counts!”

To join the campaign through Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr, visit IA’s Thunderclap page. Thunderclap will request permission to send the Smart Irrigation Month message on your behalf to your contacts on July 7 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern. After the campaign is complete, Thunderclap won’t post any additional messages on your behalf.

The campaign needs at least 100 supporters for the message to be sent on July 7. Become a Smart Irrigation Month Thunderclap supporter and help spread the word about water-use efficiency to more people than ever before!

IA first launched Smart Irrigation Month in July 2005 to increase public awareness of the value of water-use efficiency and water-saving products, practices and services. The initiative is designed to:

Educate farmers, homeowners, businesses and other users about simple ways to save money and water.


Encourage industry firms and professionals to promote smart irrigation practices and technologies to customers.

Reinforce the role efficient irrigation plays in providing real solutions to today’s water challenges.
