Dear Marriage Supporter,
As you know, the 2016 March for Marriage is scheduled for just 9 days from now and we are working around the clock to get ready for the big event. We're finalizing the staging and sound systems, pushing hard with promotion, working to confirm speakers, putting the finishing touches on security plans and taking reservations from across the country. We expect hundreds of people to join us in DC on Saturday, June 25th for this important March.
But there is one major element of preparation that needs immediate attention — we have a $12,500 shortfall that must be eliminated for the March to be completed on budget. Just a week ago we had a $25,000 shortfall, and with the help of many supporters have cut that in half. But unless we can raise the remaining $12,500 before June 25th, we run the risk of ending up in debt and having to cut other critical programs.
I am asking you to make an immediate financial contribution of $35, $50, $100, $250 or even $500 or more to help us cover our budget shortfall. If God has blessed you with generous financial resources, please consider making a contribution of $1,000, $2,500 or even $5,000. But whatever amount you decide is right given your circumstances, please act today.
We will be releasing a preliminary list of speakers next week. I know that you will be inspired and pumped up to hear from leaders of the marriage movement, and to join with them in marching to the US Supreme Court to protest the illegitimate redefining of marriage in our nation's laws. We're also protesting President Obama's illegal and outrageous attempt to redefine gender. And we're marching to demand that Congress enact laws to protect supporters of marriage from discrimination and persecution by the government.
I hope you will be able to come to Washington to join with us on June 25th. All the details for the March are available here. Please let us know if you will be attending so that we have an idea about how many people to expect.
2016 March for Marriage
Saturday, June 25th
11:30am until 2:00pm
All the details are available at the March for Marriage website.
But even if you can't personally attend the March this year, you can still be a champion for marriage by making an urgently-needed financial contribution. Please give whatever you can — whether that be $25, $50, $100, $500 or $1,000 or more. Your contribution is tax deductible, and will be put to immediate use to help ensure that this year's critical March is a success.
If you have already made a financial contribution to support the March for Marriage, thank you! If not, please act today. And don't forget to use the share and email buttons below to let all your friends and contacts know about the March for Marriage and explain how they can support us as well.
