Take Action: Join the "To Gaza With Love" Letters Campaign
Posted on: Tuesday, April 19, 2011
This action comes to us from USTOGAZA. To download a pdf version of the flyer for this campaign, please click here. If you prefer to send your letter electronically via MADRE, please click here.
The US Boat to Gaza, The Audacity of Hope, is committed to breaking the siege of Gaza. Around the US thousands of people have been contributing. Not everyone can sail on the boat but you all are just as much a part of the campaign as the passengers and the crew.
Already mothers, farmers, teachers, students, cab drivers and artists are writing. Whether it’s a letter from a US mother to a mother in Gaza, a child in the US to a child in Gaza, or letters from students, teachers, business people, religious leaders to their counterparts in Gaza, the siege cannot withstand the power of our words to break through.
Please write your letter today.
To participate in To Gaza with Love:
- Write a letter and then encourage your friends and family to join this collective action of friendship and solidarity with the Palestinian people.
- Organize letter-writing parties in your home, school or place of worship.
- You can simply write a few lines on a postcard, a few paragraphs on paper or a card, or film a short video clip.
- Be creative. The only restriction is we need to be able to get it to Gaza. If you do a sculpture or a wall mural, you will have to send us a picture, not the real thing.

How Will We Share These Letters?
When The Audacity of Hope sails, your letters and messages will be part of its cargo. Meanwhile, we will send some of these messages right away and make them public through Twitter, Facebook, on our website, and in statements to the press. We’d also like to archive them and create an exhibit or book.
