The store is up and running. With the store comes 10% earnings back to Free The Egg. As stated before, we WILL NOT pocket any of that money. The only thing we want out of this site is Kinder Surprise Eggs in the USA! All financial proceeds will go to printing and mailing the final petition to all members of Congress. In fact, we have the Zazzle store set up to NOT send any of the earnings until we ask. All money left after printing/shipping will be donated to ChildLight Foundation for Afghan Children. (www.childlightfoundation.org)
Beginning today, we will post the total earnings in the store. (If Friday comes and goes without an update, please email us!)
Total for Free The Egg Zazzle Store as of February 18, 2011 – $11.
Here we go, folks! http://www.petitiononline.com/freeegg/petition.html Please sign the petition and spread the word! We need A LOT of signatures to really make a difference.
Coming soon – on-line petition! Rather than everyone emailing their Congressman, we’ll soon provide an on-line petition. Once we hit a certain number of signatures, we’ll print and mail the petition to EVERY member of Congress. We WILL need help with mailing. Because we do not make any money with this site, we will need people to contribute a bit of their time and postage to accomplish our goal.
For now – keep emailing your Congressmen, but keep an eye on the site for the petition.
Any further ideas? Let us know!
Have a chocolatey day!
First, thanks to Delphina Rojo for sending me this link:
Apparently you can buy the eggs through Amazon…for the moment. We need to check this link daily because I can guarantee it will be removed once the gov’t finds out.
And, second, in researching Kinder Egg deaths (new link coming your way – it’s only fair to share both sides of this issue, even though our side is RIGHT) – I found this website. http://www.acreativerevolution.ca/node/2576
Interesting read. It never ceases to amaze me how twisted things can be.
