Dear Marriage Supporter ,
I wanted to write today to thank you for everything you have done to make this fight to save marriage possible!
And I wanted to ask you to once again renew your support of NOM by making a donation of $35, $50, $100, $500 or more to help us continue launching major initiatives that will provide marriage with the best defense possible!
I ask because we have another incredible opportunity before us to capitalize on the momentum generated by the March—a generous supporter has pledged to match every donation made to NOM in the coming weeks dollar-for-dollar up to $500,000!
The momentum and publicity we generated from the March for Marriage has been extraordinary. You can see one of the first instances of the Media coverage by watching my interview on Meet the Press (click here).
But although they couldn't completely avoid covering the issue, most of the mainstream media did everything in their power to avoid mentioning the March for Marriage. BUT they could not avoid showing pictures of our marchers in their coverage... there were just too many of us!
As you know, over 10,000 people gathered on the mall in front of the Washington Monument. Well over 60 buses drove in from as far away as Chicago, with 2,000 people busing in from NYC representing the Latino and African American communities of the Bronx and metro NY. One family came in all the way from Utah! It was truly a sight to see thousands chanting "One Man, One Woman" and then "Un Hombre, Un Mujer".
We marched up Constitution Ave to the Supreme Court, sending a clear signal to the Supreme Court Justices that the American people believe marriage is between one man and one woman, and every child deserves a mom and a dad.
We mobilized more than 40 co-sponsor organizations, who stood shoulder to shoulder with us, defending marriage. And we gathered many inspiring speakers, who reminded the Court, the country and the media that America stands for marriage!
An especially moving moment for marchers was watching a video of 11 year old Grace Evans testifying in front of the MN state legislature asking... "Which Parent Do I Not Need?" But every speaker was impressive, and you can now see them all online.
Supporter, the March for Marriage was a home run in every sense!
Everyone left energized and committed to stand-up and defend marriage no matter what.
Now is the time—an incredible opportunity to capitalize on the incredible momentum of the March. With our generous supporter's matching gift, every dollar you contribute will be DOUBLED! And you and I will continue to be able to give marriage the defense it both needs and deserves.
Thank you again for standing up for marriage and for supporting NOM's work in defending this critical cause.
You and every defender of marriage are in my prayers—always.
God bless you!
