Help Tony the Democrat and Postcards to Voters with a Recurring Monthly $20 Donation

Help Tony the Democrat and the Postcards to Voters army by committing to a recurring monthly $20 donation to sustain its good work.

 

If you read One Thing You Can Do, you know about Tony the Democrat and the Postcards to Voters army. We’ve written about it since the beginning, back in March 2017, before it was a thing.

 

Well, Postcards to Voters is definitely a thing now. As of mid-May 2018, it has more than 20,000 postcard-writing volunteers, who have helped more than 50 candidates in federal, state, and local races across America win runoffs, special elections, and general elections.

 

Recently, Postcards to Voters and Erika from Collective Vision, who creates and sells postcards designed with the Postcards to Voters army in mind, announced a new effort.

 

With the mid-term elections coming, Postcards to Voters needs to increase and strengthen its finances. It’s asking folks to commit to a sustained monthly pledge. The dependable funds will help Tony and friends recruit more postcard writers and accept larger address lists from candidates for office.

 

Erika at Collective Vision has a special offer for those who commit to a sustained $20 per month pledge by May 27, 2018.

 

If you sign on, you will receive a free, one-time gift of an 100-card set of a new, not-yet-released postcard design. (The rest of the world gets to see it and buy it in early summer.)

 

Some things to know about the $20 sustained contribution:

 

Committing to a sustained $20 contribution means you agree to give Postcards to Voters $20 every month, month after month, until and unless you cancel it.

 

Your pledge isn’t tax-deductible.

 

If you’re already giving Postcards to Voters $20 a month, you will receive the 100-pack of the new postcard design automatically.

 

You can’t do sustained donations through PayPal, sorry.

 

The 100-pack will be mailed to the billing address that you give on the donation page. If you need Erika to send the postcard pack to a different address, email her at postcards @collectivevision.us (but know also that she’s away between May 16 through 26, 2018).

 

If you offer a sustained donation of $40 per month, you will receive two 100-postcard packs, and for every additional $20 you can pledge monthly, you’ll get another 100-count pack.

 

You can cancel your sustained pledge at any time.

 

If you can’t commit to $20 per month, don’t feel bad! Every bit helps, even if all you can do is tell other people about Postcards to Voters and invite them to join.

Join the Postcards for America Page and Keep Fighting Trump With Postcards

This OTYCD entry originally posted in March 2017.

 

The OTYCD page on joining #TheIdesOfTrump–the effort to bury Trump in postcards on March 15–is the most popular in the young blog’s history.

 

Seeing as you all have such an appetite for sending postcards, we’re doing a post on one or our favorite Facebook activist pages: Postcards for America.

 

Its main goal is to encourage you to send postcards to your members of Congress about your fears and concerns. But it also alerts you to other postcard campaigns and suggests legislators who might benefit from receiving great wobbling piles of postcards that tell them they’re wrong, or in some cases, exquisitely correct and in need of thanks.

 

Apply for admission to the Postcards for America Facebook group:

Please note: Postcards for America is a closed group. You can apply to join and you will have to wait for an administrator to approve you before you are admitted.

Send Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, The Notorious RBG, Birthday Wishes on March 15

Send birthday wishes to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who turns 84 on March 15.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the queen of judicial badasses. She inspired the “Notorious RBG” meme. She’s served on the Supreme Court with wisdom and dignity since 1993, when she became only the second female justice appointed to the august body.

She turns 84 on March 15. Let’s show her some love, shall we?

Send letters and postcards (and include your full return address please) to:

 

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Supreme Court of the United States

1 First Street, NE

Washington, DC 20543

Dump Postcards on Trump on March 15, #TheIdesOfTrump

Are you stocked up on postcards and 34-cent stamps yet?

Consider mailing a few postcards to President Trump on March 15, which organizers are calling the Ides of Trump.

The goal of the movement is to get more than a million postcards off to Trump on March 15, none of which have anything good to say.

Postcards should go to:

President Trump

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington D.C. 20500

The Ides of Trump folks encourage you to take a photo of your postcard before mailing and put it up on social media. If you post to Twitter, use the hashtag #TheIdesofTrump

Here is a link through which you can purchase postcard stamps:

While we at OTYCD urge you to be civilized, the postcard messages should make clear that you are not happy with Trump.

Some messages that could work:

“Nevertheless, we persist.”

“John McCain was much funnier than you on his episode of SNL.”

“Release your tax returns.”

If you’d like a fine, subtle, albeit pricey way to troll Trump, you can purchase postcards of Titian’s painting of Danae.

Danae is a mortal princess from Greek mythology who was impregnated by the god Zeus when he visited her in the form of–no joke–a golden shower.

Here’s the link through which you can order the Danae postcards (warning–the company is in the UK, so the postcards and the shipping will be on the expensive side of things):
