President Obama's 'For All' campaign is encouraging supporters to take pictures of themselves with their hands on their hearts and a note explaining why they support President Obama, reports the Washington Examiner.

In an Obama email to supporters, actress Jessica Alba said: “Growing up, my classmates and I started every day with a ritual: We’d stand up, put our right hand over our hearts, and say the Pledge of Allegiance."

"To me, that gesture was a promise. A promise to be involved and engaged in this country’s future. A promise to work for liberty and justice, and for affordable education, health care, and equality for all.”

“That’s why all across the country, people like you and I are proudly writing down our reasons for getting involved, and then taking the pledge to vote.”

“Make sure you’re ready to vote this fall. Putting your hand over your heart is making a promise. Casting your ballot is keeping it.”
