May Day occurs on May 1 and refers to several public holidays. In many countries, May Day is synonymous with International Workers' Day, or Labour Day, a day of political demonstrations and celebrations organised by the unions, communists, anarchists, and socialist groups. May Day is also a traditional holiday in many cultures. (Wiki)
“If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain when I’m in the White House, I’ll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself. I’ll walk on that picket line with you as President of the United States of America.” (Obama, 2007, campaign)
Please send President Obama a comfortable pair of shoes for May Day.
If we mail the shoes during the week of April 25 – he will receive them on or around May Day.
Choose a pair of comfortable shoes that are in decent condition, but that you do not wear anymore, put them in a box and mail them to this address:
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
You don’t need to send a letter, he should get the message intended – a short polite note would be sufficient if you need to say something regarding your shoes.
(The White House can donate the shoes to homeless shelters after they are received – if one of his staffers is smart enough to think of that.)
Please join me –
"It’s May Day Mr President – here’s your shoes."
