Pick Up Postcards to Swing States Shipping Kits

Since announcing on July 6 that they were expanding to 10 swing states, Postcards to Swing States has been inundated by orders for 8 million cards...and counting! Check out recent coverage they got in The Hill. The organizers are in desperate need of volunteers willing to “kit” the packets of postcards to ship to postcard writers all over the country. That's where we come in!

As of August 6, Indivisible Evanston has helped them ship over 600,000 postcards! Help us ship 2,000,000 postcards through September which will be a huge help at the program's goal of sending 15,000,000 GOTV postcards to voters in Swing States by late October! 

Help us ship postcards to volunteers nationwide! All you need to so is sign up to pick up a kit in Evanston. Kits can be assembled at your home, and all you need to do is follow the easy instructions and call USPS to pick them up. 

KEY POINTS AND KIT INFORMATION

  • How does it work? Volunteers pick up kits containing postcards, paperwork, boxes and shipping labels.
  • You assemble the kits for shipping and then call USPS for a special pick up OR drop the orders off at a post office.
  • Each kit includes supplies to prep and ship approximately 56 orders of 200-400 postcards to volunteers.
    • Boxes of postcards with bundles of 100 postcards.
    • Postcard writing instructions and packets of 200 addresses for each order.
    • Shipping labels, holders and envelopes are provided.
    • Each kit requires 1-2 hours volunteer time to prep for shipping.
    • Note: boxes of postcards are heavy, be prepared to lift 20-30 lbs.
    • Once all kits are prepped, you just contact USPS for a pickup.
    • Kits are TIME SENSITIVE and must be shipped within 3-5 days of pickup.

Sign up: Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up for a 15 minute window to pick up your kit. If you can take more than one kit, please sign up for consecutive slots! Thanks!

Pick Up Location: Home of Laura Tanner: 2319 Park Place, Evanston, 60201. Social distancing protocols in effect. Once you sign up, you will receive an email with pickup instructions.

Thank you for helping us help Postcards to Swing States!
