Over $2300 raised in 35 days for Indivisible Ferndale
You did it time and time again. We asked for your help and you gave it! From the Avenue of the Giants Marathon on May 4 and 5 to the Tour of the Unknown Coast on June 8, you stepped up! And yes, we raised over $2300 in 35 days!
Thanks to the team who managed the booth at the Tour of Unknown Coast on June 8 including Pat, Karen, Kathleen, Tom, Kerry, Joe, Barb and I. A beautiful day with great music and friendly folks. Thank you to Stephen, Kathy and Jan for your help setting up our booth.
Thanks, as always, to our IF bakers including Susan Aste, Vicki, Ruth, Sylvia, Jackie, Kathleen, Lori, Karen and Barb. Check out the photos here.
Some friendly competition with Cloverdale Indivisible
The Indivisible Ferndale Postcard Writing Warriors already know this, now you will too! I recently intercepted a Cloverdale Indivisible communique in which its membership was being asked to write 400 postcards to voters in the North Carolina 9th congressional district. There will be a special election on September 10 for this district since the November 2018 election was mired in Republican fraud. Read about the November 2018 election here.
It occurred to me that Indivisible Ferndale could “see their 400 postcards and raise an additional 100 postcards” for a total of 500! In a more recently intercepted Cloverdale Indivisible communique, CI members are accepting the challenge. (They must must not know that we wrote over 3000 postcards to voters during the 2018 midterms!) Read the communique here.
I now have 500 names and addresses for voters in the NC-09 district, scripts and prepaid postage postcards. Postcards and addresses come 20 in a packet. Please be prepared to donate $8 for postage on every pack of 20. If you would like to get in on this action, attend our next Postcard Writing Party:
- Date: Tuesday, June 25
- Time: 7 to 9 pm
- Location: Barb and John’s home at 1095 Cream Court
- Please RSVP for the June 25 Postcard Party by sending an email here.
- If you can not attend the party, you can drop by our house and pick up postcard packs or call us at 786-7172.
