15 state ballots by tomorrow midnight.
(Listen to my Saturday morning audio message here.)
This is Ralph Nader.
It is Saturday, July 19, 2008.
As you know, hundreds of our stalwart supporters are deployed all over the country this weekend — on street corners, at malls, in front of post offices — seeking to meet their commitment to put Nader/Gonzalez on 15 state ballots by tomorrow midnight.
On our way to 45 state ballots by September 20th.
To give millions of Americans the chance to vote for a candidacy that will shift the power from the corporations back into the hands of the sovereign people.
One week ago, we asked you to help us reach this goal by raising $60,000 by Sunday midnight to fund this current ballot drive.
As of this moment, we are well over $50,000 — thanks to all of you.
Tomorrow night, we will raise our hands with you and declare victory in reaching this important milestone.
But first, we must get there.
We have less than two days to raise the difference.
Less than $10,000.
So, this is a special plea.
To those of you who have yet to contribute, now is the time.
Go to votenader.org, and hit the contribute button.
To those of you who have donated less than $250.
Remember, every dollar we receive from you up to and including $250, the federal government will match it, dollar for dollar.
It will double.
If you give $100, the federal government will give Nader/Gonzalez another $100.
If you give $250, the federal government will give us another $250.
And to those of you who have already given $250.00 or more, remember —
You can give up the legal limit — $2,300 per person.
So, go to votenader.org now and give whatever you can.
You’ll be fueling the hundreds of Nader/Gonzalez activists all over this country.
Let’s drive this one past the finish line.
In the safest vehicle you know.
The Nader/Gonzalez campaign.
In all their concrete manifestations.
Have a safe and happy weekend.
And thank you for your generous support.
