Will you help preserve marriage in your home state? With the May 8 election just around the corner, we urgently need your help today!
In just 70 days, North Carolina voters will go to the polls to decide the future of marriage. If adopted, the Marriage Protection Amendment would make North Carolina the 31st state to protect marriage with a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
As of today, North Carolina is the only state in the South whose marriage laws are without this basic protection.
The Marriage Protection Amendment protects marriage in North Carolina from backroom political deals and—more importantly—unaccountable judges.
The stakes could hardly be higher. In 30 straight states, voters have approved constitutional amendments to protect marriage. A loss here would be devastating—not only for marriage in North Carolina, but for the entire nation.
As we enter into the final two months of this campaign, we need to make sure that every North Carolina voter understands the importance of protecting marriage—and gets to the polls to pull the lever for marriage!
Whether it is radio and TV ads, online outreach, automated phone calls, yard signs, or organizing get out the vote volunteer efforts, a statewide campaign is expensive—and it would be heart-breaking if we had to pull back in the final days before the election due to lack of funds.
That's why NOM is organizing this 7-day campaign to raise money for the Vote for Marriage NC campaign. Over the course of the next week, we are asking you—our North Carolina supporters—to help raise $100,000 to make sure this amendment passes.
And NOM will match every dollar donated between now and next Tuesday
with a separate contribution directly to the campaign from
NOM's general account, doubling the impact of your gift.
Here is what I'm asking you to do:
Go to VoteForMarriageNC.com and make your most generous gift right now. Whether you can give $25 or $2,500, don't put it off—every dollar you give today will be doubled through NOM's matching gift! The important thing is that you stand with us today.
Then forward this email to your friends. We have just 7 days to raise $100,000 for the campaign. If we can reach our goal, we will ensure that the campaign has the funds needed to get the message out over these final two critical months.
I know I'm asking for a lot. But we can't afford to rest. Please be generous and give whatever you can today. In order to reach our goal, we need 1,000 North Carolinians willing to give $100 to protect marriage. Will you stand for marriage today?
Thank you in advance and God bless you!
