This is the last email I'm able to send you before tonight's midnight deadline and the conclusion of our tremendous million dollar matching campaign.
As you know, one of our most generous donors has offered to MATCH—dollar for dollar—every donation we receive, all the way up to one million dollars!
As of this morning, we have raised $894,915.06 toward our goal. We have only until midnight tonight to raise another $894,915.06 to take full advantage of this incredible opportunity!
Today is the last day for the match and we are so close!
As you know, our opponents get huge checks from Hollywood celebrities or well-funded left-wing foundations. NOM counters with tens of thousands of small donations from supporters just like you, who sacrifice your time and money to defend marriage.
If we are able to take full advantage of the Year-End Million Dollar Match, we will have the sort of financial security and proof of grassroots support that will show the anti-marriage crowd that we are not going to roll over and allow marriage to be destroyed. It will send a strong message that we are ready to go toe-to-toe with the anti-marriage bullies all over America.
We are counting on you—one of our most loyal supporters—to make sure we receive every penny of this $1 million matching gift offer.
So please make one urgent year-end gift to the National Organization for Marriage before midnight tonight to put us over the top and send a message to those who would see marriage in America destroyed.
As I said, today is the last day before this offer expires–you must act now!
With so much at stake in 2012 (marriage under fire in dozens of states, the legal case to uphold Prop 8 in California, a bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act moving through the Senate, and the most important presidential election for marriage ever), we MUST close out 2011 on strong financial ground.
That's exactly what we'll do with this Million Dollar Matching Gift offer, but only if you make your own urgent, generous gift right away.
Thank you for all you have done and all that we will do together in 2012. Happy New Year!
Brian S. Brown
National Organization for Marriage
P.S. Please do not delay. When thinking about how much you can afford to stop same-sex marriage from being imposed on your state in 2012, consider that your gift will be immediately matched for maximum effectiveness.
So please be as generous as you possibly can right now. The offer expires tonight at midnight, so I must hear from you as soon as possible. Thank you so much, and God bless you!
