National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

I've written to you recently to share the incredible successes of our March for Marriage.

And today I'm asking you to make a financial investment to defend marriage with your most generous contribution of $35, $50, $100, or even $1,000 or more to help NOM build upon the momentum of the March for Marriage.

Please remember that every dollar you contribute right now will be matched dollar-for-dollar by one of our most generous supporters! So your contribution will have DOUBLE the impact in defending marriage!

The United States Supreme Court is deliberating two historic cases relating to marriage. It's no exaggeration to say that the Supreme Court's decision in the next few months will alter the future course of our society... for better, or for worse.

And although I could not be more confident in the superb work being done by the legal team defending marriage in both the Prop 8 and DOMA cases, I also understand the critical role that ordinary citizens like you and me play in helping defend marriage at this crucial juncture.

One of the greatest threats to marriage today is the silence of its supporters!

The Justices of the Supreme Court (as well as politicians at all levels) MUST understand that the vast majority of the American people believe in marriage and want their voices (and their votes!) respected.

And that's why NOM is launching a Citizen's Marriage Petition to the Supreme Court... gathering thousands of signatures from citizens all across the country to clearly and visibly demonstrate the powerful support for one-man, one-woman marriage.

We need to spread our message — explaining what marriage is and why it's essential to a healthy society — not only to those who agree with us... but also to those who are perhaps wavering in their support because they don't truly understand what's at stake.

Supporter, you support our cause and have defended marriage in your state and at the national level. But today, I'm asking you to take the next step: please financially invest in the fight to defend marriage and the future of our society right away!

The success and momentum generated by our March for Marriage inspired a heroic marriage supporter to pledge to match every donation, dollar-for-dollar, up to $500,000 to help NOM continue providing marriage with the best defense possible.

With this incredible opportunity and your help today, NOM will march on in defense of marriage... and we will be able to reestablish a marriage culture in our country... where children will have the best possible chance of being raised in a stable, loving environment by their own father and mother!

Thank you for all you do to assist NOM and to defend marriage!
