Afraid

 


Dear Marriage Supporter,

Fear can be a tremendous motivator and I have to admit it has me very motivated.

I am tremendously concerned right now that we will not raise the money we need to pay for the buses we have reserved to bring thousands of marriage supporters — willing to take time out of their weekend to stand up in defense of marriage — to the 2015 March for Marriage.

So I'm extremely motivated to make a serious ask of you... because if we can't raise the money we need very soon, I will have to call up the bus companies and cancel many of the buses we have reserved.

And that would be a tragedy. I don't want to do it... I don't want to have to tell people who want to fight for marriage that they can't because they lack the financial means to attend... but I'm going to have to do it if we can't raise the money we need.

It costs on average $2,000 to subsidize a bus. Each bus will bring over 50 people to the March. We still need to raise a lot of money in the next few days to fund the buses we have already reserved — to say nothing about the additional buses we could add if we had the funds.

Won't you please make a donation right away to help us fund the buses we have reserved to help out struggling Churches organize buses for their communities to attend the March for Marriage?

I'll sponsor a bus full of marriage supporters to come for the March for $2,000.

I'll sponsor half a bus to come to the March for $1,000.

I'll sponsor a quarter of a bus to come for $500.

I'll sponsor three supporters to come to the March for $120.

I'll sponsor one supporter to come to the March for $40.

I'll make a donation of another amount.

Remember that anything you give will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000 by another generous donor.

Please, make a donation right away to help us raise the funds we need to pay for the buses we have reserved.

And then, please spread the word and help us raise additional monies by forwarding the information about the campaign on to friends and family by using the buttons below:

You could also go to our GoFundMe page and use the buttons available to you to share that campaign with family and friends on Facebook and Twitter. You could forward this email to people you know and ask them to join you in supporting the March. You could make an announcement over the weekend at your social gatherings or at your Church.

I know I'm asking a lot, but the alternative is too serious to consider... I'm going to have to cancel many of the buses for the March for Marriage if we don't raise a considerable amount of money very soon.

Please make a serious sacrifice to help defend marriage today.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

PS: Please send this email to as many friends and family as you can. Urge them to come out to the March for Marriage in front of the Capitol at 11:30 on April 25th; AND also ask them to prayerfully consider helping others get out. God bless you for all you do to defend marriage!
