Dear Marriage Supporter,
Today is the last day to help us reach our $100,000 fundraising goal for the 2014 March for Marriage.
It's the end of the month and bills are coming due. Contracts have been signed that require payment in advance for logistics, equipment, consumables, travel arrangements, and many, many more critical details.
We are still around $25,000 short of our $100,000 fundraising goal for this month — will you help us close the gap with an immediate and generous donation?
As you know, it's critically important that this March make a powerful statement. Right now, more than a dozen court cases are on their way to the Supreme Court and we have a chance to make our case that America still believes in marriage before the Justices next consider the issue!
As I mentioned yesterday, Justice Kennedy's strongly worded opinion about the sovereignty of the initiative process and rights of voters to enact social policy in the Michigan Affirmative-Action case is a very hopeful sign. So is the stay they issued earlier this year in the Utah case, halting the lower court's dictate that marriage licenses be issued immediately to Utah couples.
We still have a way to go to reach our goal of $100,000 before the close of the day, so please make a donation right away. If you haven't yet made a gift in support of the 2014 March for Marriage, please prayerfully consider investing right away in this noble and worthwhile endeavor. And if you have recently donated, please consider making an additional gift to help us reach our goal.
Marriage supporter, can I count on your help in this critical hour?
I'm asking you — regardless of the amount — to step up and make a gift in these final hours and help us make the 2014 March for Marriage an unparalleled success! Whether it is $5 or $5,000, if every one of us plays a part, we can make the case for marriage when it is in most need of a vibrant and energetic defense!
