World Post Day - POST CARDS FOR CANBERRA

World Post Day

This year "World Post Day" falls on the 9th October 2018.

Why don't we invite our customers to help us send a collective message to the Minsters of communications, Senator Fifield, or the Shadow Minister Michelle Rowland, whichever party supports your political ideals, or send one to both for good measure.

Print out the flyer and share the idea with your customers throughout September to get this message to Canberra for World Post Day.

We could send post cards from our suburbs/towns/regions with the simple message 'this card was sent from an Australian owned Licensed Post Office - employing locals and supporting local businesses and we are worried about our future viability'.

The salutation for Michele Rowland could read : 'Senator Fifield doesn't seem to care, do you?' and to Senator Fifield:  'Do you care about the future viability of the LPO Network Senator Fifeld?'

You never know who may be inspired to take up the cause. Imagine if a politician started waving the Post Cards from Australia's LPOs in the air at parliamentary question time, asking why we had to send them a Post Card to raise our issues again.

Senator Fifield's Parliament House address is:

PO Box 6100
Senate
Parliament House
Canberra ACT 2600

Michelle Rowland's Parliament House address is:

PO Box 6022
House of Representatives
Parliament House
Canberra ACT 2600

If we collect POST Cards for Canberra all through September and post them on the 1st of October, 6 working days should see most of the POST CARDS delivered on the 9th October, the day gazetted by the UN as World Post Day.

Does LPOG have any approved press info we can use? I have some sympathetic media (paper and radio) that I would like to reach out to in the coming weeks to raise the profile of our campaign in the local area.

Has there been or is there arranged any media coverage? Has everyone sent theirs off? We did, but small town won’t make much of an impression alone.

I was going to post ours tomorrow, we have over 500. I was also wondering about media coverage?

Just wondering if there is any info on the impact or reaction to our efforts as yet?

It’s not a sitting week so we will have to wait until next week to get the response. I think we should keep them going till Christmas asking Mitch to match the banks contribution.

Sent about 600* on the 5th. Have sent about 30 every day since then and will continue to send them as they come in.

* 50:50 split between the minister and shadow minister.

Have we heard any official news yet? I know they have been received as network manager rang me and asked if I was closing the next day, they received a " ministerial enquiry". I said no, but you guys know I am struggling so he said oh, ok. I stewed about that overnight and rang this morning to give him my truth. Where is any empathy or offer of help? anyway he is coming to visit next week now so I will give him some more of my truths. "We all matter" my bum.
