We apologize. We were formerly giving away free bumper stickers, but we became simply overwhelmed by the number requested. We do not have the budget or volunteer staff to send out as many as were being requested, and as a small non-profit, resources were rapidly dwindling. We still have bumper stickers available, but we have had to begin charging a nominal fee for them to cover for their cost, shipping and paying a staff member to send them.
1 bumper sticker: $1.00
2-5 bumper stickers: $0.75 each
10-49 bumper stickers: $0.50 each
50-99 bumper stickers: $0.35 each
100 or more bumper stickers: $0.30 each
Shipping included. Thank you!
