FAQ: MomsRising Summer Postcards
Thank you for helping to power our massive summer postcard campaign to let the US Senate know that we must build not only roads and bridges, but a CARE Infrastructure. You are helping bring us to the future that we know is possible. We are so grateful - thank you again!
> Signing Up for Postcards <
Where can I sign up for the summer postcard campaign to the US Senate?
The sign-up page for our current postcard campaign is here and may close at any time. Another way to help is to donate to help offset the cost of printing and postage.
How do I update my address before the cards are dispatched?
Use our online form to update your address by Sunday, June 20th. Unfortunately, address changes after that date will not be honored.
> Receiving Postcards <
I haven't received my postcards yet! When will they arrive?
Postcard packets are expected to be mailed in late June and arrive before July 4th. Some packets may arrive late! If you do receive your packet late, just make sure to drop them in the mail before July 26 for maximum impact.
Please note that address errors sometimes result in postcard packets that don't arrive. You can check your confirmation email for this campaign to see which address you signed up with. We are unable to send replacement packets of postcards.
> Writing Postcards <
Do I have to handwrite the message that MomsRising suggested in the instructions?
Yes, we hope that all volunteers will handwrite the message provided on the instruction card. Please note that you can use the entire width of the postcard, above the the barcode and below the stamp section.
I lost my instructions sheet – what should I write?
Check out the instructions sheet on our website!
> Mailing Postcards <
When should I mail my postcards?
Drop them in the mail before July 26 for maximum impact, but all postcards should be mailed to the U.S. Senate as soon as they are completed -- the sooner the better!
My local post office said I need to buy stamps to mail the postcards – is this right?
A few volunteers have reported this happening. We want to assure you that the printed postage on the postcards is correct and valid. It is part of a USPS program called "Share Mail". Unfortunately, some USPS employees may not know about this fairly new postage program. We suggest that you simply drop your postcards in a blue USPS mailbox outside your local post office, or one that's located in your neighborhood. This way, your postcards will be accepted into the mail stream automatically and processed without delay!
> Other Questions <
Do I have to be a mom or parent to participate?
No – anyone and everyone is welcome to volunteer to write MomsRising voting reminder postcards!
Do I need to add stamps to the postcards and cover the cost of postage?
No, MomsRising is covering all postage costs to make this project fully accessible to everyone that is interested in participating. The postcards all have pre-stamped indicias.
