You suggest, we send handcuffs: Who needs education about standards?


Do you know a certain politician who should really learn more about Open Standards? Have you tried to explain the importance of Open Standards to your boss, friends, local administration or service, but without any results? Would support from the outside world help? Definitely! Inform our Document Freedom Day (DFD) team about your situation and we will send a free, remarkable gift to your contact to help them learn more about the power of Open Standards.

All you have to do is submit the name and postal address of the person you'd like the DFD team to contact by March 30. The DFD team will then deliver by post gratis Open Standards educational packages, consisting of a short letter explaining the topic and - to symbolise proprietary standards - a pair of handcuffs! The DFD team is planning to send 100 packages, so submit your suggestion soon to be sure your contact will receive their free materials. DFD packages will be sent on April 4, and you can track shipment through our package tracking map on the right.

Your support directly increases the amount of packages sent. Any donation above the amount of 10 EUR gives you the right to indicate the name of an additional person who will receive our package. So, who needs education about Open Standards? Tell us today!
