Hey Anne -
Isn't nice to have someone listen to you about this stuff!! Good job.

I edited CCJ's black info (copyright intact) and made it into very
short clear paragraphs with simple language, large type, and included
full pictures of burns and put it all in a notebook.
On the cover is a skull and crossbones and in big font, We do not use
the toxic black henna, Information. I throw the notebook out on my
table at all our events and let people browse throught it.
I've discovered if I'm trying to tell a black henna lover it's
dangerous they view it as and advert for my henna but if I hand them
the book they are much more receptive and often come and say thanks, I
didnt know, I'll never do that again!!
Also, through out the day I hear guys, usually, saying they only like
the black designs so I toss them the book, they open it up to the
front photo of a burn and freak.
It's very effective AND non combative.
I agree with you about sending out black henna info.
It 's easy to include a copy in every application you send out, only a
few pages extra.....

: Anyone have a good PPD flyer?
: So here's the strategy part: what if we all made an effort to
: festival organizers in our cities/counties/states with packets about

: cut down on cost and effort. I truly thought we had won the battle
: against this crap, but I see now it's just the beginning.
: The only way we are going to fight the "does it come in different
: colors"/fake tattoo/I don't want it if it's not black crowd is to
keepeducating people and showing them what henna, real traditional
henna,can do.
