Fedora Says Thank You!

First of all, I do not want to take any credit for this idea, it belongs to John Rose, and has been bouncing around, trying to come to life, since July 2010. I am just happy to help it finally hatch!

John, Jared, Paul, Max, and I all want to thank Fedora users and contributors for everything that they do in our rich and diverse community. As a small token of our appreciation, we're giving away free Fedora stickers and case badges to any community member who sends us a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE). It is our little way of saying thank you for all that you do.

Here is a short FAQ:

Q: What is a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope?
A: A Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE) is an envelope with the sender's name and address on it, with affixed paid postage. In the UK, this is also known as a "Stamped Addressed Envelope (SAE)".

Q: Where do I send my SASE?
Red Hat
c/o Tom Callaway
314 Littleton Road
Westford, MA

Q: How long is this offer good?
A: We will return any SASEs that I receive on or before May 31, 2011.

Q: How does this work?
A: Basically, you write your mailing address on an unsealed envelope and attach paid US postage to that envelope (enough to send a letter to that address from the US). This is your SASE.

Next, you put your SASE in another envelope, which you then mail to me at the above address.

When I receive it, I will open your envelope, put in some nifty Fedora stickers and case badges, seal it up and drop it back in the mail to you.

Q: Is there a limit on how many SASEs I can send you?
A: Please, one SASE per person. If you have some sort of complicated situation, feel free to email me directly and we'll work something out (

Q: Is this offer open to contributors outside the US?
A: Of course! We realize that it may not be possible or simple for our international contributors to get their hands on US postage, so you are more than welcome to include an International Reply Coupon instead. (More info about International Reply Coupons can be found here: If you choose this option, please do not forget to include the self-addressed envelope!

Q: Can I decorate my SASE?
A: Sure. Just remember that it will be coming right back to you.

Q: Do I need to prove that I am a Fedora User or Contributor?
A: Nope. If you go to the trouble of sending us the SASE, we'll send you stickers and case badges.

Q: Can I tweet/dent/facebook/IRC/email/tell my friends about this offer?
A: Absolutely.

Q: Can I just put some money in the envelope and have you buy postage with it for me?
A: No. Any money found in the envelope will go into my 1 year old son's college fund. If postage is a problem, please send me an email (

Q: Will Fedora or Red Hat keep a record of my mailing address?
A: Nope. All we'll do is put stickers and case badges in the envelope, seal it up, and drop it back in the mail.

Q: How many stickers and case badges do I get?
A: One large Fedora Logo laptop sticker (3 inch) and four small foil "Powered by Fedora" case badges.

Q: What do the stickers look like?

Q: I have a question that isn't answered here, where can I ask it?
A: Email
