Recently I’ve been doing A LOT of writing. I’ve been sending postcards to voters about the upcoming US election at the rate of 10-15 per week.
The upcoming election in the United States is a very big deal. Never have the two candidates been more divergent, and given issues like public health, the economy, immigration and more there’s a lot at stake. And I’ve felt like I needed to get involved in some way.
So I’ve been writing postcards to voters. In today’s day and age (and in the US) we receive tons of pre-printed direct mailings about which candidates to vote for. But how often do we receive a handwritten postcard encouraging us to do our civic duty? My intent in simple: encourage people to vote because their voice matters.
And so each week I’ve been sitting down with my Ink Joy Gels (who doesn’t love a little color?), some USPS pre-paid postcards, and writing to people I don’t know to encourage them to make their voices heard.
