Proud Copt Stickers
Written by Website Admin   
Monday, 01 May 2017

Volunteers at St Mina and St Abanoub Coptic Orthodox Church in Dayton, OH, created, designed, printed and are currently marketing a car sticker (laptops too) that says: Proud Copt.

The concept of Proud Copt sticker is to serve one main purpose, and that is to raise awareness of us Copts, and our beloved Coptic church in our cities and communities, by getting people to ask: “what is COPT?”

As we use our cars daily, while driving, stopping in traffic, as our cars are parked at work, schools or shopping centers, the Proud Copt sticker on the rear windshield can be seen by many. The majority may not bother, but a few will surely look up the word “COPT”, and learn about us. When that happens, that’s success! Perhaps, some may even like what they learn about our church, history and may decide to come see our church and learn more from us.

The second purpose is to let local citizens know that COPTS is not just a small community that lives thousands of miles away, in the Middle East (or Egypt). We’re here too. We live, work, go to schools and have churches here in the US. We’re a part of the local community.

Since we started this project, we have received very positive feedback, first from our church congregation on the concept, design and the quality of the sticker. More importantly, some members from our congregation have shared with us experiences when folks approached them with questions and comments about our Coptic church. Now after a few days of starting out-reach through our l friends and family on social media, we already shipped hundreds of stickers to Copts in eight states. Eight states where Copts are now introducing our Coptic church to their communities.

100% of funds collected (Cost is $5 per sticker) from the Proud Copt sticker will be donated to the poor and/or needy. Funds collected between April 1st and July 31st will be donated to the Coptic families that fled the city of Arish (Sinai, Egypt) due to the barbaric attacks and threats from the Islamic State terrorists, leaving their homes and all of their belongings behind, and now have to start new life from nothing.

Please help us make our Coptic Church famous. We are depending on strong Copts like you to get the word out. Purchase a sticker for you and one for a friend, and tell everyone about this cause. Thank you and God bless!
