Plate Action Step-By-Step Guide

Once you've made your plate, you can organize a "Collection of Plates" in your community! Organize a "Collection of Plates" in 5 easy steps:

STEP 1 Gather paper plates or white paper, markers, tape or glue, and, if you wish, download the templates from the Jubilee website!

STEP 2 Publicize upcoming Cancel Debt Fast & the plate collection by making an announcement in local churches, meetings, classes, wherever you will be collecting plates! You can order free outreach brochures from Jubilee USA by contacting Nathan Fishman at nathan(at)jubileeusa.org.

STEP 3 Find creative ways to get people to put messages on plates:
 o Set up a table after a religious service
 o Help youth in your faith community or local school decorate plates
 o Set up a table at local community or faith event
 o Don't forget to have folks include their name and contact info on the plates so that the member of Congress will see that they are a constituent.

STEP 4 If you'd like, take pictures of your community displaying your Plate Collection, then submit them online to monet cooper at monet(a)jubileeusa.org. We'll feature your pics on the Jubilee website!

STEP 5 Send your Collection of Plates to the Jubilee office by October 15, 2007:
