Dear Marriage Supporter,
The success of NOM's Summer Membership Drive is absolutely critical for us to generate the resources we need to carry on our essential work fighting for marriage and religious liberty.
And I have to tell you, I am disappointed with the response thus far. We should be over 20% toward our goal by now, but we're only at 10%.
Needless to say, ten percent is not going to cut it.
We can't influence Congress to pass the First Amendment Defense Act if only ten percent of our people help.
We can't persuade courts to uphold religious liberty laws and protect supporters of marriage from being sued, fined, fired or even jailed for refusing to be personally complicit in the lie of same-sex 'marriage' if only ten percent of our people help.
We can't fight President Obama's dangerous gender 'identity' agenda with only a ten percent participation rate.
And we can't effectively educate the American people about the issues, or establish a grassroots network, or work with allies in the states if only ten percent of our supporters are willing to step up.
What about you? Are you willing to step up and make an immediate membership donation of at least $35 so that I know you are still standing with us. The fight for marriage and religious liberty sits on a knife-edge, teetering between preservation and devastating loss. We are depending on you and all our supporters for the resources needed to prevail in this historic battle.
I don't mean to be dramatic, but the fact of the matter is that all our plans for the rest of the year are in jeopardy unless we get a strong response to our Summer Membership Drive.
The Summer Membership Drive is only five weeks long, and we're already 50% short of our objectives. Please, let's eliminate that deficit and get back on track. I'm asking you to take a minute to make your Summer Membership contribution of at least $35. If you have the resources available, please contribute more than the minimum.
I've been involved in running pro-family nonprofit groups for nearly twenty years. I've been through the “summer doldrums” before where people do not give as generously as they do at other times, but we can't have that kind of response this year. Our work is too important and it can't be put off until later when more people are able to give.
Whatever you can give in response to this critically important Summer Membership Drive, please act today. We need it.
PS – After you have made our own Summer Membership Drive contribution, please forward this email to anyone else you think might be willing to support us, using the buttons below. Thank you!
