All members contribute to Toronto Free-Net's success in one way or another, each according to their ability and their available time.
Rather than volunteer, some members participate informally, by spreading the word to friends and neighbours. They might put up a poster on a bulletin board while visiting their grocery store. Or they might mention TFN when the subject of Internet service comes up in conversation with friends. Thus, they can contribute without making a commitment — simply by seizing small opportunities, as they arise in their day-to-day life.
Here are some ways to help out, without actually volunteering:
Tell friends, neighbours, even strangers waiting in queue! Keep a TFN leaflet in your bag, to hand out when an occasion arises!
When going to your library branch, community centre, social assistance office, or other public space, take a small stack of TFN leaflets with you, and give it to a librarian or receptionist, to restock their supply. If they did not previously keep a supply of TFN leaflets, you get to introduce them to TFN!
When doing your errands, take a couple of TFN posters with you. Put one up when you pass by a good spot, such as the bulletin boards at work and at grocery stores, laundromats, bakeries, coffee shops, etc.
If in doubt as to whether a TFN poster would be welcome at a particular spot, ask the shopkeeper or custodian of that space. If they like it, they might post it in a prominent spot, such as on a store-front window! Please remember to be courteous in spaces that are owned or managed by someone. If a shopkeeper says "no", accept their refusal. It is their shop, so it is their right to keep it as they please.
Rather than sending them away empty handed, lift their spirits by telling them about TFN and handing them a TFN leaflet! Keep a small stack of leaflets by your front door.
The people who deliver those flyers have Internet needs too! Attach a TFN poster with tear-off strips to your mailbox, then watch as the people who bring you flyers also take a tear-off strip of paper with TFN's phone number!
