New Project to Commemorate Dr. Paul – Please keep bumped

We need to complete one last grassroots project on behalf of Dr Paul and I'm willing to do it but I need some help. This project will be easy. No long letters, no expensive donations, no talking to strangers.

Dr. Paul has inspired, educated and cured the apathy of many. I think we are all grateful of Dr. Paul for having the courage to stand up and speak about the things that no one else dares mention. It takes a strong man to stand up and criticize the status quo all the while being mocked and laughed at by so many. I am now quite sad that this election cycle is coming to an end and I think we should do something for Dr. Paul to honor him for his achievements and to thank him for his candor.

I want to create a very professional and high quality shadow box to send to Dr. Paul at his Congressional office. For those of you not familiar with the term, a shadow box is a 3D picture frame that allows you to place objects on the inside as opposed to photos. There are lots of 3rd rate shadow boxes, but when done properly, these highly impressive keepsake frames can be a beautiful representation of a specific moment.

I would suggest browsing Google for shadow boxes if you still need more information. Just remember... some are better than others.

As I said, I want to create a very professional shadow box and send to Dr. Paul. I will be seeking out a large (preferably) solid Cherry shadow box with a glass face to protect the contents.

Here is where I need some help. I need some items to go in the box. I'm looking for high quality items that are representative of Dr. Paul’s presidential election. I am also looking for some of the unique items that were created by the many who were inspired. The only requirement is that the items have to be fairly small and have professional quality.

Some of the items that I've thought would be useful:

* Pens
* Buttons
* Keychains
* Magnets
* Positive News print and Magazine articles
* Magazines where Dr. Paul appears on the cover.
* DVD's
* One of all the Slim Jims
* RP 2008 Letterhead
* Revolution: A Manifesto
* RONPAUL license plates (There are several across the Country. I have one and I will seek to track down the others to include as no other candidate ever has supporters getting their names on license plates)
* Silver and/or Copper Ron Paul Liberty Dollar (would be really cool but I imagine those who have them will not want to give them up)
* Anything else that you may have that would look great in a shadow box on the wall of Dr. Paul's office.

As I've stressed, this will be a high quality and professional shadow box that I would like to create and have delivered to Dr. Paul’s congressional office very shortly after the November election, but, that means it's time to get started on this now.

So here is what I need. Items, Items, Items! If you are interested in donating something please contact me via email at adam1mc@hotmail.com and I will provide a mailing address and telephone number so that you may stay in contact. Anyone that participates will be included in regular emails and pictures of the work in progress as well as information to help track the package once it has been shipped. I am willing to pay for this entire project (estimated cost about $250-$300) but if anyone is willing to send $1 or $2, I would be appreciative. Please just send me an email to adam1mc@hotmail.com and I'll provide you with a mailing address or PayPal account.

Anyone that donates anything of any significance (i.e., Ron Paul Liberty Dollars or anything with a value of over $100) will be specifically mentioned in a hand written letter to be included inside the shadow box.

I like to consider myself a decent writer but I have horrible penmanship. I need someone with beautiful penmanship to hand write a letter on behalf of the grassroots to Dr. Paul thanking him for inspiring many and having the courage to stand up for liberty. The letter will need to be written on high quality Hemp paper (as was the Constitution) using a heavy black pen. The writing of the letter will come towards the end of this project as specific names will be included on the bottom of the letter. I wish to include the names of those who have donated significant items for this project, those who made significant contributions or ideas and those who have been an overall inspiration for all of us. The letter will be choreographed towards the end but I'm looking for a volunteer to write now as well as nominations for names to be mentioned (Trevor Lyman, Granny Warriors comes to mind).

So if you have any professional items that are representative of Dr. Paul’s presidential campaign that you would like to include in a presentation on be half of the grassroots, then please send me an email to adam1mc@hotmail.com and help me get started on this memoir for Dr. Paul.

Get in touch with me, send me items and please post thoughts or ideas here in the forum.

* Disclaimer - If lots of people were to send me things it would be impossible for me to include everything. Therefore, sending items does not guarantee their placement inside the shadow box, unless previously agreed that your item WILL be included (i.e., license plates, Liberty Dollars, Revolution: A Manifesto and others). Once sent, all items become my property and items will not be returned if not included (excluding the previously mentioned and items of significant value). All donations that are sent will be used 100% entirely on this project. Funds received that exceed the cost of this project will be donated to the Ron Paul endorsed Freedom candidate, George Lilly of the 1st congressional district of Colorado.

Unfortunately I haven't had

Unfortunately I haven't had much response regarding this project. I have had only 1 person send me Ron Paul related items and I have had one enthusiastic individual offer to create the letter from the Grassroots.

I really had hoped to collect enough items to present Dr. Paul with this wonderful memento at the September 2nd rally. Without items from members of the grassroots I fear this project will never take off. Unfortunately, without your donations I do not have enough items to create a worthy gift for the person who inspired us all.

If you have any extra Ron Paul related items laying around, please get in touch with me and I'll send you my mailing address. I'm not asking for money. All I am asking for is some Ron Paul related merchandise that will be presented to Dr. Paul himself. If you have anything and would like to donate to this worthy cause please email me at adam1mc@hotmail.com

Have you tried posting your request at other r3volution-friendly sites like RP Forums, etc.?

Shameless Bump

I still need stuff from people.

Anyone want to send something that can be used? I've got samples of the copperplate penmanship, I'll post pics later in the week.

I sent you an email but

never got a response back.........the day this hit the daily paul I answered...

Lets bump this for this

Lets bump this for this beautiful Saturday!!

I received a sample of the copperplate penmanship yesterday. I'd post a link but I'm on my way out the door to head to a wedding but I'll get one posted later.

I'm wanting to push up this project and hopefully present this project to Dr. Paul at his convention in MN. I still really need some items.

If you have anything that you would like to contribute, please send me an email to adam1mc@hotmail.com and I will send you a mailing address.

1st package of stuff received.

I received my first shipment of goods today. The package contained a nice collection of Ron Paul related stuff.

The following is a list of items I received from the generous supporter:

Mouse pad
Several different styles and sizes of pin type buttons
Blue RP round stickers
White and Blue bumper stickers
RP Chocolate coins (will probably have to place these in coin cases to protect the shape)
RP wrist band

So we can cross those things off the list. Who else has some stuff to donate? I'm looking for pens and would love some blimp merchandise (trevor hasn't replied to my email) magazines and newspapers. Any other cool stuff that I can't think of at the moment.

I've tried to get in touch with the other people who have RONPAUL license plates. One person didn't want to give theirs up and the other person hasn't responded. Do you know anyone that has a custom RP type license plate? Have them get in touch with me if you do.

I haven't forgotten!!

Just a head's up -- I'll be supplying that which you requested tomorrow. I suddenly had some work (!!!) which was *desperately* needed, and therefore received my full attention. Since that is now completed, I'll get right on the task I promised you. :)

Thank you. I'm surprised

Thank you.

I'm surprised more people don't have items that they would like to donate to Dr. Paul. I really had expected my email box to blow up... Instead I've had only about 8 people get in touch with me.

Oh well.. those 8 people have all offered to contribute items and as I said I don't really mind doing the work myself... I just had expected more of a response from the GR.

Come on supporters!

Dr. Paul has dedicated a lifetime to the spreading of the freedom message. Can you not contribute towards this worthwhile project?

I've had someone offer to

I've had someone offer to write a letter (that will be included on the inside of the shadow box) in copperplate penmanship (similar to the font used on the Constitution) and we may be writing the letter using Hemp. Pretty cool stuff. That person is supposed to be snail-mailing me a sample. When I get it (maybe today) I'll post pics to her work.

That sounds like a winner!

Another bump before leaving work. I know you guys posting on DP know that this is a pretty cool gift to express our appreciation for all that Dr. Paul has done for this movement. Let's do this thing!!!!

I appreciate

all the creativity that has come from this freedom movement. We do owe our awakening to Dr. Paul. At the very least, this shadow box will serve as a warm reminder of how many people he has touched with the message of freedom.

Well I still need a few

Well I still need a few items. I found some of the copper Ron Paul liberty dollars on ebay for pretty cheap. I'm going to purchase one or two of them on payday. So I'll have the copper coins, Revolution, mousepad, pens, stickers, slim jims and someone to create the letter to Dr. Paul.

So I'm well on my way. If you've got anything worthy of donation please get in touch with me and I'll send you my mailing address.

Im so broke adam but Ill see what I can do after I get the summe

I hope your not talking

I hope your not talking about the Amero coins that were purported by Hal Turner and Daniel Carr... If so, you can always still buy the *fake* coins at the following site:

Great project

That will be a wonderful gift for him. Pictures of family and special occasions.

Then when you finish the project, present it at a high profile event.
