Update: Wow. That was fast. Just wow. Thanks all. Whatever you can give above and beyond, every cent goes towards our efforts to expand this work in other states. Thanks everyone!
I’ve written before about how one of the things I love most about writing here is the community aspect. Folks helping each other out with info/links, folks meeting and falling in love, folks taking actions after their fellow community members put out a call.
This afternoon, P8TT community member Peterplumber generously offered to match any donation made from the P8TT community between now and Monday night, up to $1,000. The funds will be earmarked for our work on the ground in other states to bring the kind of success we had at pushing back on the anti-marriage equality bill yesterday in New Hampshire, pushing back hard on NOM, generating Testimony stories, contacting legislators, finding the next “voice” for an issue, and more. The thermometer above will update every 15 minutes or so.
Peter and I just spoke on the phone and he said to me,the reason I’m doing is is that the one disadvantage we have is money. NOM has more. Period. But if we get to parity or better, there’s no limit to what we can do. And we can do that.
He’s right. Match begins now. Whether you can donate $5, $10, $100 or anything in between, let’s match Peterplumber- and pull even with NOM.
