Dear Marriage Supporter,
Today I'll be brief and to the point: I am happy to announce, new for the new year, that NOM's website has gotten a makeover!
We've been working hard at rolling out this redesign, and I hope that this new site will enable NOM to serve you and all our constituents better in 2014 and in all the marriage battles ahead.
Of course, as with everything NOM does, this has been only made possible through your generosity and financial support. From the bottom of my heart, I give you my thanks.
Due you your generosity, NOM met our fundraising goal to close 2013 and completed our million dollar matching campaign! It came right down to the wire, but your generous giving enabled us to raise the $1 million just in time and to have the full amount matched by our generous donor's pledge! So now — all thanks to you! — NOM heads into this critical year with $2 million that will help us give marriage the defense it needs and deserves!
In addition to checking out the new NationForMarriage.org sometime today, here are two other things you can do for marriage in America:
First, if you haven't done so already, please sign our new petition to the U.S. Congress calling for marriage to be protected through an amendment to the Constitution. (If you want to read more about this new initiative, click here.)
This petition is vitally important and opportune. We've seen, from the stunning decision by the Supreme Court this week to reinstate Utah's marriage amendment, that the question of marriage is still very much up for grabs! So we need to capitalize on this newfound momentum and urge Congress today to protect marriage once and for all with an amendment to the U.S. Constitution!
Second, if you live in Indiana, or if you have friends and family that do, please make sure you or they visit this important action notice, and take the steps to contact the Indiana legislature today. We're urging them to pass the proposed marriage amendment there and put it on the ballot for the state's voters in November!
Again, I cannot express how grateful I am for you and all of NOM's great supporters: you really are the best!
God bless you for all you do to stand up and fight for marriage.
