You can create a email signature like "I support Dennis Kucinich www.kucinich.us" that appears at the bottom of all outgoing messages through your email settings. You can also do this with many online forums.
Something as simple as chalking messages on sidewalks where there is pedestrian traffic can have a great impact in raising awareness about the campaign. Short, simple messages such as "www.kucinich.us", “Google Dennis Kucinich”, “Dennis Kucinich 2008”, etc, can be a great way to put “advertising” in places where people notice it because they don’t expect it. This is especially great on college campuses and it can also be done in the places where you are going to hold info rallies. It is very simple and cheap to carry a piece of sidewalk chalk with you and do it subtle in some places. I don’t advise going nuts and writing ‘Ron Paul’ on every single inch of the sidewalk, just a few well placed messages. If every one of us wrote the web address on a sidewalk everyday imagine how many people we could reach for that few minuets of writing.
Fortune Cookies Edit
Fortune cookies can be bought with custom messages like:
"Dennis Kucinich 2008 - Strength Through Peace www.kucinich.us"
"Vote for Dennis Kucinich www.kucinich.us"
"Who is Dennis Kucinich? www.kucinich.us"
"Why Dennis Kucinich? www.kucinich.us"
In Massachusetts you may be fined up to $100 for posting up campaign signs but you can still ask permission from the city or private property owners to put up signs. Some places offer bulleting board space for things like this.
Buy a stamp that says "www.dennis4presicent.com", "www.kucinich.us", "Dennis Kucinich 2008", or a stamp that you can customize, and stamp anything that will be circulated beyond your hands, namely, money, letters, etc.
Hints & Traces Edit
Leave hints and traces of the campaign wherever you go. If you use a shared or public computer at a library, at school, or anywhere else, leave campaign websites or video of Dennis up.

Portable wall of Dennis Kucinich. Using ALL of the printouts from http://www.dennis4president.com/go/resources/issues-library/ and http://www.dennis4president.com/go/resources/downloads/ cover a poster wall and bring it to popular public places to raise support!
