DEADLINE: March 15, 2017 Call for Political Action/MailArt #TheIdesOfTrump

We invite you, anyone in the world, U.S. Citizens or not, to take part in this global Call for Political Action/MailArt #TheIdesOfTrump by making and mailing your postcards in, partaking in and/or organizing your own local Art-Making events, inviting your friends here and abroad to participate.  Post images online via your favorite social media outlets using the hashtag: #TheIdesOfTrump.

We will be hosting our own Political Action/MailArt-Making Event at the Democracy Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA on March 15, 2017, 11am-1pm and will ceremoniously walk to the post office to mail in our postcards directly to:

President (for now) Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Here the original facebook post and call to action!

On March 15th, each of us will mail Donald Trump a postcard that publicly expresses our opposition to him. And we, in vast numbers, from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the man with his unpopularity and failure. We will show the media and the politicians what standing with him — and against us — means. And most importantly, we will bury the White House post office in pink slips, all informing Donnie that he’s fired.
Each of us — every protester from every march, each congress calling citizen, every boycotter, volunteer, donor, and petition signer — if each of us writes even a single postcard and we put them all in the mail on the same day, March 15th, well: you do the math.
No alternative fact or Russian translation will explain away our record-breaking, officially-verifiable, warehouse-filling flood of fury. Hank Aaron currently holds the record for fan mail, having received 900,000 pieces in a year. We’re setting a new record: over a million pieces in a day, with not a single nice thing to say.
So sharpen your wit, unsheathe your writing implements, and see if your sincerest ill-wishes can pierce Donald’s famously thin skin.
Prepare for March 15th, 2017, a day hereafter to be known as #TheIdesOfTrump
Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Take a picture and post it on social media tagged with #TheIdesOfTrump ! Spread the word! Everyone on Earth should let Donnie know how he’s doing. They can’t build a wall high enough to stop the mail.
Then, on March 15th, mail your messages to:
President (for now) Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

It might just be enough to make him crack.
Not my original post but someone else's great idea!
Copy and repost.
