TAKE ACTION

TPP and TPA legislation is expected to go before Congress in April 2015 and it will be a very close vote.  Critics of the bill are well organized. Small businesses, which stand to gain the most to gain from reduced export barriers, are not.  Protect your business's access to the 95% of consumers who live outside of the U.S. by ACTING NOW.

Listen to Hello!Lucky co-founded and Share Trade founder Sabrina Moyle discuss the need for action here:

CHANGE.ORG PETITION

Sign our petition to let Congress know that TPP matters to small businesses and conscious consumers!


SMALL BUSINESS EXPORT BADGE

Let Congress and social media know that small businesses care about exports, and that increased access to export markets would mean more jobs.

Send us a few facts about your company, and get a badge back to post on social media and your website. Or, make your own using the Over app.

GET YOUR BADGE NOW.

   
Example

HOW TO GET YOUR BADGE

You can make your own badge quickly and easily by downloading the Over app. Or, simply email a product photo, logo, or headshot to sabrina@hellolucky.com and submit the form below.  We will email your badge to you asap. Once you have it, share on social media (feel free to email it your member of congress or tag them on Twitter!).  To estimate # of employees for export, simply sum the product of each full-time equivalent (FTE) x % of time they spend on export-related tasks including marketing, order-fulfillment, trade shows, and logistics.

Estimated number of full-time equivalent employees (FTEs) who contribute to exports. Give your best estimate - we get that there is often no such thing as a full-time employee dedicated to exports in a small business and employees wear many hats.

Do you make products or offer services that have a market or potential audience outside of your home country?  

Tell us and show us what you make, and share what values your products stand for worldwide.  

Add text to a photo using the Over app. 

Or, record your 15-second video on your phone and edit it, if necessary, in iMovie, directly in Youtube, or using a similar simple editing app.   

Follow this template:

MY NAME IS...

I MAKE...(describe your product)

I EXPORT...(describe the values your products stand for)

Your name and occupation (if desired)

If making a video, add the following (optional): WE NEED TPP TO PASS* AND WE NEED EVERYONE TO SHARE TRADE.  (Or, if you disagree with or don't care about TPP, just say "We need everyone to share trade."  There are many levers for opening up fair and ethical trade between countries.)


SHARING IS CARING

Post on your badge, selfie or video on social media with #sharetrade or e-mail it to us and we will post it on the Shop Share Trade Youtube Channel
