Another Package Sent!

9 02 2011

The White House can expect another FedEx package from the POTUS Project. Included inside are around 100 of your letters and Jody Zellman’s comic; we think that the POTUS is going to enjoy everything that we’ve included.

Of course, more letters would be ideal. If you’re feeling inspired to send a letter, either send one directly to the White House (1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC, 20500) or send it to POTUS at, and we’ll put it in the snail mail for you.

And if you are a student group who would still like to contribute to the project, email us!

That’s all for now; stay tuned for our upcoming community service initiatives.

24 10 2010

Thank you so much to all of you who came out today to learn about POTUS, and especially to those of you who have jumped right in and taken on action items for this week. For those of you who weren’t there this morning, you can still get involved by emailing the relevant contacts below. This will depend on your particular interest. If you are truly flexible and want to work on any initiative that needs the most support, simply email and we will set you up with a group.

The Groups:

Also, we are going to be making a listserv for easier communication with the work group. If you didn’t come to the meeting but are still interested in in being in on this communication, let POTUS know by emailing

By this Friday, our goal is for each group to have solidified its approach to its task. Please make sure to contact the group that you are interested in before Friday so that you may be involved in the process. As always, please respond with any questions that you may have.

The Meeting Details: Sunday, October 24 @ 10am in the EC 2nd Floor Lounge (directly up the stairs on your left after swiping into EC)

We’re going to divide up into individual outreach, student group outreach, and general publicity at this meeting.

If you just can’t make it, but you want to be involved, please email, and we’ll send you minutes & updates.
