Help us win marriage equality in Washington!

Referendum 74 Washington marriage

By Scottie Thomaston

Courage Campaign is sending its members to Washington state to help approve marriage equality in the state, with dozens more making calls from home. And here’s a Friday special offer: if you contribute $22 ($1 for each Courage member currently scheduled to travel to WA and pound the pavement to get out the vote), there is a special offer of a nice Courage Campaign tote bag. The initial order of 50 tote bags is nearly sold out, so act quickly to get yours!

Ballots have already been mailed to Washingtonians this week, so now is the critical time. Chip in today! See the e-mail below.

Dear Scottie,

This week, our friends at Washington United for Marriage launched the “Donate a Day for Marriage” drive to reach 1 million Washingtonians. There are only 18 days until the election, and we still have 22 Courage members in Oregon and California who want to help get out the vote in Washington, but need a helping hand with gas and a rental car to get their GOTV carpool on the road. So we’re pitching in with a special offer!

Scottie, if you chip in $22 or more right now — $1 for each Courage member — we’ll mail you this beautiful Courage Campaign tote bag, hot off the presses.

You’ll help our members pound the pavement in Seattle, win marriage equality on the Left Coast, and you’ll have a great new bag for the grocery store or wherever your errands take you. Let’s leave no voter — or Courage member — behind.

Help our members pile into their carpools by chipping in $22 or more to fund our get-out-the-vote program. We’ll immediately drop your tote bag in the mail and you’ll have the gratitude of our members and same-sex couples in Washington.

Thanks for all you’re doing,
Adam Bink
Director of Online Programs, Courage Campaign

    OK, I just donated double ($44). Please don't send two bags, in fact I really don't need one so please send it to someone else who donates.

    And BTW, I'm not currently employed but this is very important so I donated anyway. I encourage anyone who is able to donate to please do so right away. This particular type of donation, to cover expenses of very active volunteers, gives us a whole lot of 'bang for the buck'.

    That's really generous, Dave. Thank you! I will make a note.

    Why not permit us to direct a donation to any one or more of the four ballot initaitives.

    We can all donate directly to the various state campaigns too. I don't think it's necessary for the Prop8TrialTracker site or Courage Campaign to act as an intermediary for those donations. Each of the four state campaigns has a 'donate' button on their site.

    That's correct. Courage Campaign's members voted to place our greatest commitment towards winning in Washington earlier this year, but feel free to donate where you like.

    I question focusing on Washington State. The numbers there and in Maine are great, why not give your efforts in Minnesota or Maryland?

    This video is private.
    Sorry about that.

    It's a YouTube video.

    Did someone (the person who posted the video at YouTube) violate copyright?

    Did a YouTube employee take it upon themself to take the video down?

    Why was it available, then not? In other words, why is it now private?
