FAQs

  • Where can I get a set?
    Justice Postcards are not available for sale. They are only offered as a thank you gift for a donation made to a participating organization. Follow us on social media to hear which orgs we are partnering with.
  • How much postage does each card require to mail?
    These cards need a letter rate stamp such as a Forever stamp. They are too big for the postcard stamp rate.
  • Who should I write to?
    You can write to anyone! I hope you will use some of them to thank activists and leaders who you appreciate. Supportive words are powerfully strengthening.
  • How can I find the address for someone I don't know personally?
    Activist leaders can receive mail through their organizations' mailing address. Help people maintain their privacy by not searching out their home address if you don't know them personally.
  • NonProfits

  • What's the deal here?
    Justice Postcards are a tool to help justice oriented organizations raise much needed funds. They are meant to be used as an incentive and a thank you gift to donors in a month-long donor drive.
  • How can my org use the Justice Postcards?
    The idea is to get new sustaining monthly donors of $20 or more so your org can have a more stable funding source going forward. Some orgs will also send this thank you gift to current sustainers and big donors.
  • Do we have to be a 501(c)3?
    Your org does not have to be a registered 501(c)3 to use Justice Postcards.
  • How is an org chosen?
    Interested organizations apply using the Inquiries form. Criteria include a justice oriented mission, number of potential donors, capabilities of donor platform used, staff capacity to run an online donor drive, and ease of communications.
  • How many orgs will be using Justice Postcards?
    Probably 6-10 orgs will use the first print run of the Justice Postcards. Further print runs will be TBD.
  • Will a similar org be offering them at the same time?
    We will endeavor not to select more than one org who has a significantly overlapping supporter base with another org using Justice postcards in their donor outreach.
  • Logistics

  • Who runs the donor drive?
    Someone from your organization will be writing and sending all the emails for the donor drive.
  • What kind of donor platform is required?
    Since all donations will come directly to you and this is designed to help your org get monthly donors, you will need to be using a donor platform that allows donors to sign up for monthly donations to be automatically made using their credit or debit card.
  • Is there a cost to my organization?
    In order to keep this not-for-profit project going, your org pays the replacement cost plus postage to mail the set to your donor. So your cost to procure and send each set of 20 Justice Postcards to thank your donors is $4.
  • Is there a minimum donation our supporters need to make to us?
    The rules of how to get a donor drive thank you gift are up to you. However, I recommend setting the threshold at $20/ month or a one-time $100 donation, if this seems appropriate for your donor base.
  • Can we only give Justice Postcards to recurring donors?
    I recommend you focus your donor outreach for this drive on getting new monthly donors. However you are the one who will make the rules of how your donors can get a Justice Postcards thank you gift.
  • How long can we offer these as thank you gifts?
    I recommend a one month donor drive. This gives you time to send 3-4 reminder and update emails which will maximize your returns without fatiguing your supporters. Having a deadline is a powerful call to action. :)
  • Can we do a second donor drive using Justice Postcards?
    Depending on availability of Justice Postcard sets, this may be an option.
  • What if this is so popular that there aren't enough Justice Postcards?
    We will discuss projected needs before initiating a donor drive and try to minimize the risk of them running out.
  • How do sets get sent to our new donors?
    When your donor drive is over and the number of sets needed to be sent is determined, the sets can be mailed to you in a box to send out to your supporters or you can send me the list and reimburse me for postage I will volunteer to get them mailed out for you.
  • Origins

  • Do you make any other postcard sets?
    Not anymore. The postcards designed to be sent to Congress (Democracy postcards and Climate postcards) are out of stock and discontinued. The Be a Voter postcards I made for Postcards to Voters are still available through Postcards to Voters, but not through Collective Vision.
  • Why did you make Justice Postcards?
    I made Justice Postcards as a way to help support the super important front line advocacy and organizing work being done to create a more just society.
  • Who printed them?
    Justice Postcards were printed by a union printer in Portland Oregon. The union "bug" is printed on the address side.
  • Are you going to make another postcard set or other thank you gifts?
    There are no plans to make any more sets or other types of gifts at this time. But I'll never say never!
