On Wednesday and Thursday, May 25 – 26, we are flooding the Governor’s office with telegrams. (Yes – telegrams still exist!) Our goal is to make sure we are noticed and to send the simple and critical message that what happens to Bullseye Glass has serious consequences for tens of thousands of people around the world.
A telegram will cost you about $45 to send (depending on message length). We know that isn’t a trivial amount of money – but it is less than a sheet of glass and if we don’t make ourselves heard there may be no more sheets of glass with which to create.
Here’s what you need to do:
- “Go to https://www.itelegram.com/ and click the “Send a Telegram” button.
- Select “USA” from the blue tabs at the top of the page and then click the “Order Now” button.
- Follow the directions for sending the telegram. Here is a screen shot showing WHERE TO SEND the telegram:
- When you get to the screen where you enter your message we recommend keeping it to a single sentence along the following lines:
IF BULLSEYE GLASS DOESN’T SURVIVE I STAND TO LOSE EVERYTHING.
FUSING GLASS IS MY LIFE’S PASSION. I CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT GLASS FROM BULLSEYE.
PLEASE DON’T DESTROY BULLSEYE WHILE THEY ARE TRYING TO INSTALL FILTRATION.
IF YOU DESTROY BULLSEYE YOU DESTROY MY LIVELIHOOD.
Sign the message with your name, city, and state or country.
- Select “First Class Telegram” and click “Continue”
- Complete payment information. Your telegram order is not complete until you get to this button and click “Submit Order”.
Once you have completed this, please go to ONE of the following groups and leave a comment on the post that is pinned at the top of the page. Tell us your message and where you are from.
This is important so we can tell the press how many telegrams were sent AND what they said.
Your voice is critical if we are to save colored glass! Thank you.
