Here is one of the letters we wrote:
Dear [Student Name],
The Blue Wave Postcard Movement is a non-profit organization focusing on creating social changes. Our mission is to increase civic engagement and turn out millions more voters through peer-to-peer postcard outreach. We help organizers coordinate local postcard writing efforts. Our goal is long term community building and getting underrepresented voters out to vote.
Thank you so much for writing postcards for 5 hours in October 2020 to help people vote during the pandemic. Recipients reported that these postcards provided them with the information they needed and also inspired them to vote. This year, you became an important part of our effort to make our government work for everyone.
