Free Saeed postcards (Thu. Aug 21, 2014 12:00 pm)

Contact Info:

Peoria and surrounding areas
Everywhere, USA

We, as Christians, will be bombarding the White House with "Free Saeed" postcards to raise awareness and to let President Obama know that we have not forgotten our brother in chains and we don’t want him to either.


We want individuals, churches, ministries, youth groups, non-profit organizations, etc. to join with us. Beginning September 22, 2014, the week of the 2-year anniversary of Saeed’s incarceration, we will begin to send postcards en mass to the White House.


We have one approved postcard style, approved by Saeed’s wife, Naghmeh, that we will be using. The back of the card shows a quotes by President Obama and Naghmeh Abedini and a specific message to President Obama himself. Postcards should be ordered as soon as possible in order to begin sending them on time. But the blitz can and hopefully will go on after the anniversary date.


Postcards can be ordered through Trinity Worldwide Reprographics by emailing or calling them. Pricing and quantities available are below.
