Last year I had a GoFundMe to raise money for sending 10,000 postcards to minority voters in rural parts of North Carolina's 2nd Congressional district. This is a traditionally underserved population which may, due to illegal NC voter purges, have to think well in advance to be able to vote.
Since then I've sent out many more GOTV postcards on my own dime - for instance, I sent 3,420 into the western part of Wilson County and probably another 2,500 to other rural districts. I've figured out a way to do this more cheaply than I used to (I bought a heavy duty printer and guillotine cutter so I do the printing in my house). I mailmerge the addresses onto the cards, so that saves on time and mailing labels.
I plan to send as many postcards as I get postage money for. A postcard stamp costs 35 cents so if you contribute $50 that pays for 142 stamps! The more contributions, the more cards I can send out. I would like to cover as much of the Second Congressional District as I can. If you live nearby, you can come help me stick the stamps on the postcards (BTW they don't look exactly like these pictures - they are printed in black ink on the green cardstock). If you haven't been able to canvass, if you think minority voters in North Carolina deserve more attention - then this GoFundMe is for you! Thanks!
