For the past seven years we’ve been able to count on a generous increase in donations during the last week of December.
In fact, 1/3 of our budget for the entire year typically comes in during this month!
For some reason, the pace of contributions this December is lagging and it has us very concerned right now. We have big plans for 2018 and the years ahead. Our December fundraising is critical to bring these plans to fruition.
Please donate $28, $50, $100, $500, $5000, or whatever you can afford. Your contribution will make sure Move to Amend meets the growing demand from our grassroots organizing.
The secret to Move to Amend’s success is pretty simple:
1. Your commitment to the American ideal.
2. Grassroots organizing.
That’s right. We succeed because of your love for this country and what it could be. And, because you’ve stood up and taken action. We succeed because you pay it forward!
We need to close our budget shortfall for 2015 and get 2016 off to a great start. Please donate $28, $50, $100, $500, $5000 or whatever you can afford today.
You’ve made sacrifices to do the hard—yet fulfilling—work of building a democracy movement. You’ve done it, despite all the odds, so our children and grandchildren will enjoy a democratic future.
A future where people can come together for the good of humankind, and for our planet.
A future where education, healthcare, and housing is there for whoever needs it.
A future where hunger and poverty don’t exist, where a person needs only one job to support their family—and can find one.
A future full of hopeful possibilities instead of crushing debt or prison walls.
A future where a person is a person and not a corporation!
We thank you for your support, and we appreciate everything you do to ensure a democratic future. We are asking you to do another thing, today. Pay it forward some more.
We were once a country that accomplished great things against huge odds. A few of us still remember how we came together to fight Hitler and the Nazis. We put a person on the moon. We came together to expand civil and human rights during the Civil Rights struggle. We have repeatedly come together to transform this country into something much bigger and better than the sum of our parts. We have a history of paying it forward.
Times are tough right now, make no mistake.
Changing climate has turned bad storms into deadly storms and raging fires, which have wiped out entire neighborhoods and sections of cities.
We have more dangerous enemies thanks to our biggest-bully-on-the-block diplomacy and foreign policy.
Wall Street is still running amok after the world’s largest financial scam ever, and nobody has served one day in jail. (Too many black, brown, and poor people sit in jail for a lot less.)
Congress just passed the Tax Heist to rob all of us, and the President is on the attack against the environment, immigrants, people of color, women and LGBTQ folks.
You already know that ‘corporate personhood’ and ‘money as speech’ cause or feed these problems, and many others. And, you also know that Move to Amend is on the right track. Every time our affiliates take a resolution or ballot initiative to the voters, Move to Amend wins. And every time Move to Amend wins, it is a strike for real democracy!
If you’re able, and as devoted to ending corporate rule as we think you are, we’re asking you to invest in a renewed America capable of great things.
We’re asking you to invest in a bright and promising future for our children and grandchildren.
We’re asking you to invest in Move to Amend -- please dig deep, and pay it forward.
P.S. There’s no better gift than the gift of democracy. Please give $28, $50, $100, $500, $5000, or whatever you can afford. No gift is too small when it comes to the future of our children. If you have already given recently -- thank you! Please consider an additional year-end gift to help us make our goal.
