In case you missed it earlier this month, we announced some BIG news…and we want to make sure your chance to go to Washington, D.C., did not get lost in the abyss of your overcrowded inbox (we know it’s scary in there)!
For the next two months, we’re going BIG for clean water, so that children under 5 can grow up BIG and strong and healthy. Since we launched our Water for the World Act campaign, people from all over the country have responded to the call to be a part of something BIG: we want 30,000 signed postcards that we will deliver to Congress in January. What we’re doing is SO BIG, we wanted to make sure you didn’t miss your chance to make a difference AND win a trip to Washington, D.C.!
Here’s what to do:
1. ORDER POSTCARDS: Visit www.beyond5.org/postcards [this action has expired] and order bundles of 50 to share with your friends, classmates, congregation, co-workers, pets (just kidding), etc.
2. GET GATHERING! Gather signatures as creatively as you can (take an offering of them at a Sunday service, set-up a table at an event, pass them out to friends, etc.). The goal is to get 30,000 signed by December 30!
3. SEND ‘EM BACK: Your friends can send individual postcards back to us on their own, or you can collect them and send them in all at once—we’ve even paid the postage (just be sure you mail them early enough to arrive in our office by January 4)!
4. IT IS A WIN, WIN, WIN SITUATION! We need the Water for the World Act to help bring water, sanitation, and hygiene to the communities most in need. The more postcards you get signed, the more Congress will take notice….and the more chances YOU have to win a FREE TRIP to Washington, D.C.. in March [this action has expired] to attend our advocacy summit for clean water and meet with you member of Congress in person. The person who sends back the most signed postcards, or who has the most online signatures collected via a personalized link, will win a trip to Washington, D.C. including airfare, hotel and conference registration. (You will have a personalized number on all of your postcards, so we will know when they are sent back to credit them to you!)
