A Story I Need to Share...

 

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Yesterday I asked if you had given up… and today, I want to share with you the inspiring story of a young couple I met that is most definitely not giving up the fight to protect marriage!

Let me introduce Melissa, David, Emily and Ella Hunsaker.

They baked and sold 289 loaves of bread (!) to fund their travel all the way from Utah to participate in NOM's March for Marriage in Washington, D.C. along with their two young girls.

Why did they put in so much work to travel across the country?

As David told the BYU student newspaper, the Student Review:

"It is the future of America. I want my children to grow up in a society that values and understands that men and women have unique things to bring to the table. Children deserve both a father and mother. It's about what the children deserve."

I couldn't put it better myself, David! Thank you so much for you and your family's beautiful witness on behalf of marriage!

Part of the reason we organize the March for Marriage was to share OUR stories, stories of sacrifice, love and courage, even in the face of our aggressive and well-organized opposition that constantly attempts to malign us and impugn our motives.

We Americans who believe marriage is about bringing together men and women for the sake of the children are not a minority. We are not motivated by hatred. We are motivate by LOVE —that's why our tools are not angry signs, they are loaves of bread!

Won't you please make a generous donation today of $35, $50, $100, $500 or more to support NOM's efforts to defend the rights and religious freedoms of ordinary Americans like the Hunsakers to stand up and profess their common sense, political, historical and religious views on marriage?

Remember—thanks to a generous supporter, we have secured a NEW $500,000 matching gift! So every dollar you donate will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $500,000!

David recently wrote on his blog:

The March for Marriage was a huge success. Mostly we felt privileged to meet so many wonderful people defending marriage from all over the country and to make our voices heard. It may not have been well represented in the media, but we saw first-hand the thousands of people who still actively support traditional marriage and the way it impacts children and society.

Please stand with me, the Hunsakers and the thousands and millions of everyday Americans who support marriage by making a generous contribution to NOM today.

Special Thanks to Melissa, David, Emily and Ella... God bless you all! History is on your side!
