EVENT: Obama Gocco Postcard Writing Party in Portland, Ore.
If you are in the Portland, Ore. area, come write postcards to undecided women in swing states this Friday! Susan Beal is hosting an event at Tandem Coffeehouse in Southeast Portland on Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and has printed up a punch of awesome postcards like the ones in the photo above on her Print Gocco machine. Here are the details:
Join us to write postcards for the general election! (Details on the postcard drive are here.)
We’ll be gocco-printing handmade Oregon and US-map postcards for people to write on the spot and send in to the campaign as part of the GOTV effort in October. I’ll have a stack of hand-printed postcards ready for people to write, but feel free to bring your own souvenir/map postcards along with pens and 27-cent stamps.
This event is baby- and kid-friendly, and please bring your friends along too! Tandem Coffeehouse has coffee, tea and food, and a play area for children. Hope to see you!
Update: We’ll be mailing them in bulk after this week to a national office to address there, so no worries about bringing your own list of addresses or other details like that. We’ll just write the messages and stamp them and the volunteers in Ohio send them out in October. Thanks!
You can also bring your own cards–lots of shops like Fred Meyer and the Made in Oregon Store sell Portland and Oregon tourist postcards that would be appropriate. Please remember to bring your own postcard stamps (they’re 27 cents these days).
