Dear Marriage Supporter
I've got more exciting news to share with you!
A month ago a poll by The Baltimore Sun showed us 10 points behind in Maryland.
This weekend their new poll revealed that we have eliminated that deficit and are now leading by a point!
With victory within our grasp, I need you to dig deep and chip in whatever you can.
Please help now with anything you can spare—your help has never been more crucial! Every dollar counts—and if you could give even just $10, $15 or $25, it will go a long way. Your gift will go directly to Maryland and the other three states voting on marriage next week.
How did we overcome a 10-point deficit in Maryland in less than four weeks?
Here is our tried-and-true winning formula:
A robust, grassroots ground game of religious leaders and people of faith (in this state, we owe special thanks to the African-American churches!);
Persuasive TV and radio ads that attest the goodness of marriage and warn undecided voters about the harmful consequences of redefining it;
YOU! Your support and activism has always been and always will be critical.
Thanks to you, we have been able to commit an additional $400,000 to Maryland in these final days of the campaign.
These resources are helping us air our ads to the undecided voters who will decide this contest.
But in order to get these ads out there, we've been forced to empty our coffers.
Because this is the whole ball game!
So please help us with an emergency gift for marriage today! With your help, we have already overcome a 10-point deficit, and the race is now neck-and-neck.
Your last-minute gift can help us over the top. If you have the means, can you up your planned contribution to $50, $100 or even $250? Maryland and the four states voting on marriage need your immediate assistance!
Thank you for what you have done; thank you in advance for what you will do!
