Not a bad idea.

Pros:
Even the laziest of folks cannot come up with an excuse for not sending the cards, and sending them ASAP!

Cons:
May diminish the "personal" touch that you get when you personally write the message. That said, the "flowers" were sent via FTD.com, and they did not carry a hand-written message.

My personal preference would be to hand-write it, and I am doing it rightaway as I have a Post Office+ Walgreens right below my office building:-)

Will work on the video over the weekend.

Can i request core group to consider it ?

But needs to be carefully co-ordinated just like the rally and the flowers campaign. If we do anything that helps the community, we will be knocking the socks off our opposition, who is always trying to show us in bad light.

I would recommend faxing (Fax (202) 225-3336) thank you letter to DC instead of postal mail as all mails are delayed for security reasons. From http://lofgren.house.gov/emailform.shtml

"Contact Zoe

**IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING MAIL SENT TO MY
WASHINGTON D.C. OFFICE**


Due to ongoing security concerns on Capitol Hill, all mail sent to my Washington, D.C. office is delayed. Unfortunately, this means all constituent mail sent to Washington, D.C via the U.S. Postal Service will likely experience a delay in receiving a response back from me of a few weeks.

In that case, we can send the cards just to her San Jose office.

Use windows moviemaker(free). (IMovie for Mac)

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...e/default.mspx
http://www.youtube.com/t/video_toolbox
http://www.youtube.com/t/video_toolbox

Basically, there will be timeline on all editing software. You will several parallel tracks on the timeline.

1) Lay out the video on one track
2) Music on another track
3) Add text to another video track.

To make text video. Just type the message you wanted in the text in photoshop or windows paint and import the JPEG into the video editing s/w

It is very simple

Even though I have agreed to do this...the latest issue of the Cornyn bill getting rejected has caught my attention more.I think that should be our first priority followed by the thank you cards and the youtube campaign.

I am shocked to see that a lot of us did not even know that the Cornyn bill is being passed and no information about it was posted on IV.

Let me reiterate what logiclife has said. There is no risk for recrimination with the video. Protests can not happen anonymously.

A little story for you, I had a lengthy interview with a reporter just yesterday who was relieved to finally find someone willing to go on record and talk about this issue. She had been trying to write a article for sometime, but everyone she spoke to was more than happy to talk off the record, but not have their views published. What we are doing is perfectly legal and within our rights.

It has not affected my applications at all, and as long as I remain within the law (which of course I intend to!) I don't expect any negative repercussions.
If any reporter is having any issue getting people for interview, they should contact the core team. We will arrange people for them.

Default All four greeting cards sent

Also, I request all and one to post the videos. Don't have a story to tell? How could that be?
Maybe, you did not waste a few years like many others did. But do we need to wait and waste N years before speaking up?

When I was a kid, people would "wait" for years before they got a telephone connection. Today, you get it almost immediately, and a wait of even 2months is unacceptable! Likewise, right now we are so used to the delays in the GC process, that we think a wait of less than a year is not even worth "talking about"... I really think we need to change this mindset.

I think, we should dream big, and aspire and work to see the day on which, like the telephone connection, a properly filed green card application would take no more than a few months to be decisioned.

So, even though it has been only a year since my PERM was filed, I think I have a reason to speak up and seek improvements to the EB GC program. I am going to work on the video because even I have a story to tell about what I let go in the last one year.

I urge all and one (whatever your PD) to do it!

Default Greeting card and Video posting

This really nice time to have someone hear us and not being left unheard. CNN YOUTUBE is also great idea, we have been watching and hearing about it now.
Let's make use of it.

Thank you IV for great ideas..

Default Blood donation drive

For the attention of Core Team

I think another innovative idea would be to hold a blood donation drive under Immigration Voice banner all through the country . I am sure we could work some thing out with the red cross for this. This might be a good way to do something good for the community and generate news about our issues.
