The above links to three versions of the Promise Cards and a pdf version of the Pledge sheet.  This can be printed in whatever size you need.  The template for the cards is done on A4 size with four cards per sheet. These need to be printed two sided and then cut into four.  For best results print on light card.  Alternatively you can email justice@sma.ie for information about printed versions of these resources.  Postage and printing costs will be charged. 

 Prayer Service:  The Thumbprint Campaign can also be used by small groups or communities.   Begin by introducing the concept of Climate Justice (use the above leaflet as a source of information)  Next show the Campaign Video and then follow the Prayer Service which includes the act of putting ones Thumbprint on a Pledge sheet and collective reciting of the Pledge.

You will also need some poster paints or ink pads in order to put thumbprints on the Pledge Sheet.  Make sure you do NOT use indelible ink!! Also provide some wet-wipes to remove paint from fingers.

Prayer for the Earth:  Taken from from Laudato Si.   Use either as a poster or for reciting in a group.
