  • Doris "Granny D" Haddock:  “Love is about cooperation, sharing and inclusion.

Make Your Own Card

We've made a generic HR 1 Valentine in PDF for which you can craft your own message, or one from above.      "We LOVE what you do for Democracy"   This quarter folds into a standard note card envelope, and you can add your own message.

Or you can make your own card from scratch, or using some of these graphics.   (Thanks to Joe & Melinda Bagshaw for the graphics.)  Have fun with it! 




If you enjoy this action and want to do more, consider joining an Open Democracy Team.   Our six regional teams are briefed each week for an hour and given 1-3 actions each week, but with more learning and strategy involved.   Actions include writing letters to legislators, letters to the editor, working with your local election officials on issues, calling your state reps and senators, and fun actions like this signs, walks, parades and festivals.   You can choose your level of commitment, but you'll be a smarter, more engaged, more powerful citizen as a result!  Check it out
