WE NEED YOUR HELP! JUST 5 MINUTES CAN CHANGE THIS EFFORT!

Hello Litter Free Friends!

The big day is approaching and we need your help! We went to the Mall yesterday and we realized there is not enough trash cans and already coffee cups, plastic, napkins, food wrappers, and white rappers (Rakesh thinks he saw Vanilla Ice)…

YOU CAN HELP FROM ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY TO KEEP OUR FRONT YARD CLEAN!

Please contact the two following media contacts and make sure they have our Press Release. Make sure they have it! If they don't have the information, send them the following email. A few phone calls and some copy and pasting can MAKE A LITTER FREE MALL A REALITY.

YES WE CAN!!! LET"S GET THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION OFF TO A CLEAN START!!!

Litter Free Inauguration
A group of young people from across the country have created a new media campaign to encourage people to keep the National Mall Litter Free during the Inauguration.

In just a few days Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States. As President, Mr. Obama will inspire us to do more to help change the country for the better. Barack has said in order for real change to happen, each of us needs to make it happen. As our first commitment to change, we propose that every American planning on attending the Inauguration without a ticket pledge to make it a litter free event. Many campaign events this fall ended with hours of clean up by volunteers and city workers. We should not have to rely solely on them on Inauguration Day to keep America's front yard beautiful. By bringing a bag to the National Mall and picking up after ourselves, we can ensure a clean and socially responsible start to the Obama administration. Yes we can take responsibility for our actions! Yes we can change the World! Yes we can keep the National Mall litter free!

Thank you for your help in creating a clean and responsible celebration!
