How it works

  • Each person volunteers for a letter
  • They make their letter on a double sheet of paper (2 (8.5×11) = 11×17)
  • They take a photo of themselves holding the letter
  • Email photo to organizer who prints and mounts them on a big sheet of cardboard
  • Someone places them in a strategic location and takes photos and videos
  • Complete details and video
