If you are planning to attend Meetup this Wednesday, there is definitely something you can do to help out:
Over at Democracy for America Headquarters, they’ve been asking for suggestions to guide the future of the organization. One suggestion they have considered is to bring back the popular DeanCorps (a grassroots organization that did community service during the campaign).
Reorganized DFACorps will be collecting phone cards for wounded veterans spending the holidays in VA hospitals as well as for soldiers currently serving overseas who otherwise do not have the means to make long distance calls to their families.
This Wednesday at Meetup, Democracy for Pittsburgh will be collecting calling cards (any denomination) for the drive. If you would like to help unite the brave men and women serving our country to their families during the holiday season, please bring along a phone card. The great thing about the phone card drive is that every card donation sent into HQ will be matched by Democracy for America. A $10 phone card automatically becomes $20 worth of phone time!
If you are unable to make it to Meetup on Wednesday, but would still like to participate in the phone card drive you can still do so. Just simply send your phone cards to:
Democracy for America
PO Box 8313
Burlington, VT 05402
Thanks for helping out and hopefully I’ll see you at Meetup!
