Dear Marriage Supporter,
I have reviewed our updated financial reports and they look fantastic!
As you know, one of our most generous donors has offered to MATCH—dollar for dollar—every single gift we receive before New Year's Day, all the way up to one million dollars!
Friend, I don't need to remind you how much of a blessing this was to us. NOM has never been able to match our opponents' financial resources. But this is our chance to level the playing field! We can raise more, be better organized, and succeed for our cause.
Thus far, we have set the bar high and raised $782,111. Even with this amazing outpouring of support, we cannot stop now. We need to push harder, stay strong, and work together to put us in a position to continue winning victories for one-woman one-man marriage.
If we can take full advantage of this Year-End Million Dollar Match, we will enter 2012 ready to go toe-to-toe all across America with the anti-marriage radicals...taking the $782,111 we have already raised and strategically deploying it in preparation for early fights in the courts, over the airwaves, in the halls of power, and at the ballot box...and WIN.
We are counting on you to make sure we receive every penny of this $1 million matching gift offer. I know you stand for marriage—answering our calls to take action, speaking out when necessary—but now we need your financial support.
As soon as your donation is processed, we will immediately match it with funds from our anonymous donor and DOUBLE the size of your contribution.
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 build on the $782,111 we have raised and close out 2011 on even stronger financial ground.
That's exactly what we'll do with this Million Dollar Matching Gift offer, but only if you join us today by making an urgent, generous gift to help us level the playing field in the fight for marriage.
Thank you in advance.
Brian S. Brown
National Organization for Marriage
P.S. Friend, in case you were waiting until we were fully in to the 2012 Election Year to make another gift to the National Organization for Marriage, please do not wait one more day! Your gift right now will be instantly matched by an equal amount from an anonymous donor. We have come so far, and we truly cannot stop now
So every dollar you send today to fund our pro-marriage 2012 campaign will pay for twice the amount of hard-hitting direct mail pieces, twice the number of radio and TV ads, and twice the number of Get-Out-The-Vote phone calls—all designed to produce a landslide of voters to SAVE marriage from being destroyed.
Please don't delay. You know how important this is. 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 impact.
So please be as generous as you possibly can right now. Thank you so much, and God bless you!
