Create a seperate forum message for 'sending flowers'. And then we should all digg that message so that even media covers this practise.

I understand and appreciate people trying to do the whole flower thing, but I am not sure if it will work the way they expect it to.

I once worked in the admissions office at a very selective school. Applicants that didn't get selected resorted to such gimmicks (sending cards, presents, flowers to the dean of admissions), not sure what they expected - The dean to feel bad about his/the dept.'s decision and reconsider?

Anyway, one of my responsibilities was to screen the dept. mail, and sort out what was uselss and trash it.

Chances are, that is what will happen to the flowers sent to USCIS.

I don't mean to discourage anyone, but that money ($25-$40) you spend on flowers, could help IV a lot.

Thanks,

A single bouquet to the USCIS, perhaps will meet that fate. 500 on the same day? Well, that's a news story and that's what we are trying to do here.

Moreover, I don't understand the argument that those $30 given to IV will be useful. I am sure it would be and I am a recurring contributor, but can't these 30 dollars be over and above what we give to IV? It shouldn't be an either-or situation. I think this is an action worth taking.

Thumbs down Close this thread, far too many already!

If people want to send flowers, let them send flowers. I really don't see the point, but whatever

But please - do we need multiple polls and threads about this? How many of the 200 that are apparently ready (although this number differs on the 3 or so other polls, and countless other threads on this subject) have done actual IV action items?

Admins - please close this.

Default flower Idea

I am not sure who started this flower idea, who ever it is- I am not sure if this idea will even work.. But if you think it will work then work hard on getting media's attention.... I am not sure if flower will even go through security..

Let me know if you get any reporter who will cover this story...

If somebody wants to create a seperate message, release it, I can dig it.
I am specifically interested in getting media mileage out of this. I feel, you can get media mileage, if the media is alerted before hand, otherwise 50-60-100 or 200 boukets of flowers by itself wont be enough to get attention.

Iv has not endorsed it, probably because we have been trying to get serious media attention, and we have not gotten as much as we would like. If you are going with this flower idea - Make sure you get some reporters already involved, otherwise wont be worth it. (My take).

Thumbs up IV core is supporting the flower campaign

Great news: IV core is supporting the flower campaign - see this thread (Urgent Action Item: Send Flowers Campaign).

We have until tonight to place in the orders so that the flowers can be delivered on Tuesday.

Everyone who kept the faith - thanks and lets continue sending emails or calling people to let them know about it.
People who said that they will send the flowers only if IV core supports it - please send flowers asap.

BTW, I am curious as to who first proposed this idea.
