The Bolts are using the hashtag #BeTheDistantThunder during the playoffs to organize their faithful behind the team.
Be The Distant Thunder
The 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs will be unlike any other in history and we need you now more than ever. You showed up to send a message of support by signing actual glass from Amalie Arena that traveled with the team to Toronto. Now we’re asking you to show support locally by writing a message of support on any glass you can find – your car windshield, your house window, your wine glass, whatever! And share it using #BeTheDistantThunder. Because no matter the distance, we know you don’t have to be with us, to be with us. It’s time to Be The Distant Thunder.
And they got some key support from the Master Builder community at LEGOLand Florida.
Great use of a hashtag on social media to band their supporters together and support the team.
