Dodo Boxes - help needed to distribute round the country
Fellow Vapers,

This is a plea to all those who want to help in a coordinated "big push" to collect EFVI signatures from all around the UK.

Specifically, the members of UKV have commissioned 500 EFVI collection boxes to be made. Each box is branded with relevant EFVI information and will include some custom made (easy to use) paper signature forms.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to "Adopt a Vape Shop" (or 2...or 3!) in your local area, deliver them a box and some forms and ask them to put it in a prominent place. The shop staff should then be encouraged to ask customers to complete the paper slip and pop it in the box. Periodically (when it suits you) - you go back to the shop, collect the signatures and enter them into the online EFVI form.

There are regional coordinators, responsible for distributing the boxes to individuals in their local area (by post, in person, by pigeon - that's for them to decide). Your job is to make friends with your local Vape Shop owner and get them involved.

With an estimated 250+ Vape shops across the UK :-

250 boxes
2 signatures per day, per box
=== We hit the UK target within 3 months !!! ==

With a bit of personal time and effort we can reach our EFVI target and what better way to achieve it than having everyone involved.

More details have been posted into regional threads. If you can help in your region - please post there or contact us on email address dodobox@efvi-uk.co.uk . (If you're not sure which region you come under then there's a map here or a site here to help.)

We have 6 months left until the EFVI time limit expires so we need to start this as soon as possible.

P.S A huge thanks to Katherine Devlin at ECITA who has very kindly funded the purchase of the boxes Clapping The rest is up to us !

RE: EFVI collection boxes - help needed to distribute round the country
Now posted individual threads for each region of the country. If you can help in any way, please post into your regions thread.

We'll try and keep this thread for general information about the EFVI collection box project, the distribution progress and (hopefully) the numbers of signatures that we're getting as a result.

As soon as I can get a photo of the box, I'll post it here.

An example of the Vape shop signature form is available here :-


.pdf  Dodobox signature forms V2.pdf (Size: 85.25 KB / Downloads: 25)

But you don't have to print them yourselves - your regional coordinator will include some with each collection box.

P.S Huge thanks to UKV member Piddy for designing the forms 23

The EFVI signature "Dodo Box" :-

       

If you're a Vape Shop, or if you can deliver one to a vape shop in your area, please check the regional thread for your area and let's get these installed into every Vape shop/stall across the UK.

Thanks all.

P.S Mahooosive thanks to Andie Oakley for all his hard work on the artwork 23

RE: EFVI collection boxes - help needed to distribute round the country
Could i also point out that it may be a good idea for Regional Coordinators to keep an eye on the EFVI-UK Facebook page, as volunteers may be posting on there also. Worth a look.... Smiling (not everyone has a UKvapers account)

You don't have to stand out from the crowd to make a difference...

RE: EFVI collection boxes - help needed to distribute round the country
What a great first "official" day for Project Dodo.

To quote blaze - "The Dodo's have landed" as 150 boxes arrived today at various regional coordinators across the country :coolshades:

For all the volunteers and vendors waiting for their box - please be patient as we'll all need a few days, a lot of envelopes and an open Post Office before we can start distributing them out to you.

Anxiously waiting for the first photo of a Dodo Box "in-situ" at a Vape shop. Who's going to get there first ?

RE: EFVI collection boxes - help needed to distribute round the country
A great first weekend for the Dodo Boxes.

Requests for boxes have been flooding in from Vape Shops all over the UK (including Northern Ireland). Virtually all the regional coordinator positions are now filled, the first batch of boxes are now installed and working and the regional coordinators have been busy sending their initial allocation on to the local volunteers in their area. This is teamwork on a national scale Smiling

It will take a week (or so) for the box effect to "kick in" as the signatures probably haven't yet been entered into the EU system. But early indications are very positive from all the shops that have them.

The most important thing you can do is to volunteer to deliver a box in your region. Every box could generate hundreds of signatures, so you will be contributing a lot to the overall UK target.
