Win a post-election vacation and marriage in Washington!

Marriage equality

By Jacob CombsGoal Thermometer

With only one week to go until voters head to the polls in Washington to decide the fate of Referendum 74 and equal rights for gay and lesbian couples in the state, we’re at the most important point for fundraising to help the campaign.  It’s all about ground game and get out the vote right now, and every dollar we raise helps us make more phone calls, knock on more doors, and get voters out for equality.  If you donate now, you’ll be entered in a drawing for post-election vacation to one of California’s four most beautiful cities.  Check out Rick’s email about the drawing below:

There’s only a week until Referendum 74, and we’re still short of our fundraising goal to get out the vote. If you make a contribution to send ANOTHER dozen Courage Campaign members to get out the vote in Washington State and expand our call-out-the-vote program, we’ll enter you in a drawing for a post-election vacation weekend: free round-trip airfare to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Barbara or San Diego, and two nights with pro-equality Kimpton Hotels! It’s the perfect way to do your part before the election, and relax afterwards, too.

Here’s what we know:

  • This Friday, over a dozen Courage Campaign volunteers will travel to Seattle for 5 straight days of getting out the vote for Referendum 74 and make Washington the 7th state (plus D.C.) to allow same-sex couples to marry. Hundreds of other Courage members are calling from home.
  • Zach, the campaign manager at Washington United for Marriage, just called to ask if we could send another dozen and add another hundred on the phones. The reason? Last week’s poll showing our side below 50%, leading by just 4 points (49-45%) means we HAVE to have a better get-out-the-vote ground game or we’ll lose.
  • We just gave away an iPad Mini in our drawing on Monday night. But we’re so committed to beating National Organization for Marriage and winning this fight thatwe’re pitching in with another prize to win in Washington so we don’t have a sick feeling in our stomach on November 7th.

Make a contribution to help us get out the vote for marriage. We’ll enter you in our drawing and put every dollar you contribute to work immediately.

Thanks for all you’re doing,

Rick Jacobs

Chair and Founder, Courage Campaign

This is the final stretch, and we’re on the brink of making history by achieving the first popular vote in favor of marriage equality in American history.  Help us make that a reality!

    Got a "Courage Campaign" Tote in the mail, along with a personalized note from Rick Jacobs(Hello to Rick and your sister in SLC!) …been entered in the iPad drawing…now entered in the "after elections travel drawing"…that is all nice but what I really care about is the ref 74 vote. Me and husband signed up several days ago to volunteer to hit the streets in Seattle now until election day but have not heard back from CC: emails to Anonthy Ash or emails sent to [email protected]… I hope that means you have all the shifts covered, but mentioning here in case there is a technical glitch or something that has prevented our inquiries to go unanswered?

    GO Washington! Thank you and GOOD LUCK/Karma to all those on site canvassing!

    I don't think this ad will convince the opposing side…but hope this "feel good" ad will encourage those in favor to get out and vote!

    yea , this ad is kinda a more of a closing statement saying its time to approve ref 74 and the get out to vote effort

    I was going to contribute to until I saw the query on the form asking for my employer info. I do not feel there is a reason for me to give out that information to a fundraising campaign, so now I am not sending funds, but will send them in to continue to support our local CA Prop 8 battle instead. I DO hope you help to raise awareness for same sex marriage in Washington and for it to get and stay legal and unquestionable as a right for humankind.
