It's a bit late to organise anything but nice to keep informed all the
same! As far as I know, Max and co. are delivering 631 letters to the
Bundestag, for all MPs, to promote Free Software and push for political
support :)

Dear associates,

our Free Software society would be nothing without enthusiasm and
dedication. You and your initiative contribute an important part to that
great universe, and you deserve a huge THANK YOU!

That's why each year on Tuesday 14 February, the FSFE organises the „I
Love Free Software Day“: to remind people that they are using a lot of
Free Software and that many developers, translators, designers,
documentation writers, or testers often work in their free time to
improve the software they love.

## How you can help

But we need your participation! Please help us raising awareness in your
community and beyond for this special day of love and thankfulness.
We have collected a few ideas for possible activities you or people in
your community can carry out on 14 February:

- Decorate your work or meeting place with our balloons, stickers and
  posters and share some photos or videos with your community, ideally
  using the #ilovefs hashtag
- Write a blog post / post in social media about why you adore creating
  Free Software
- Style your project's website with appropriate artwork:
- Throw a party! Invite Free Software contributors for a small ILoveFS
  get together, some ILoveFS cake and beverages
- ...and get some inspiration from last year's activities:

If you need some lovely promotion material, simply order it online:

## Contact information

We will be happy to help you in case you need to realise your ideas!
Please write to Max Mehl <max.mehl at fsfe.org> in case you have questions
about the activity.

We hope that all of you will also receive many signs of recognition for
your work next Tuesday.
