This week, we placed another order for the #ProtectTransKids yard signs – that’s officially 1000 signs. Over 800 have been requested with more requests pouring in every day – here’s the link if you want to get on that list now.
We’ve distributed 1300 out of 2500 stickers. People are putting them on water bottles, travel mugs, laptops, and in their workplaces. We’d love to get more into school districts and college campuses. Student groups just need to ask.
There is no charge to request signs or stickers. However, we do rely on donations to pay for them. Signs and stickers are produced in Pittsburgh by union printers at Commonwealth Press. Our soon-to-debut pens are being manufactured by a union shop in Wisconsin.
Show your support. If you think what happened in Beaver County was outrageous. If you think the ad running on almost every major radio station in Pittsburgh is horrible. You can send a positive message right in your front yard or in a window. Teachers are putting these up in classrooms. The options are endless.
The signs cost us $12 each and the stickers are $1 for printing and postage. We don’t look at donations when filling requests – we just look at how much inventory we have on hand.
Share this link with your neighbors, post on NextDoor, add to a Facebook thread. Ask your school board member to put up a sign in their yard. Ask your employer to display a sign. If no one drives by your property, that’s okay. The post office does and you’d be surprised who sees it. If you rent, that’s fine. This is not a partisan political sign. Or maybe put in your window. Grab a sticker.
We will continue to order new signs as long as we have requests (and donations.)
