Join an invite-only call with Ralph and Matt

Dear supporter,

We've just finished another hectic day here in the D.C. office and I wanted to dash off a quick update about the "Dinner with Ralph" e-mail contest.

Over the last five days, over 200 of our supporters have reached out to more than 10,000 of their friends -- clearly there's nothing like a little of the good ol' competitive spirit!

And, we've just added two new prizes!

Yes, indeed.

You read that right.

You can win the grand prize -- a dinner with our main man -- Ralph Nader (at a mutually agreed time and place.)

So, we're having a contest.

The person who brings in the most e-mail sign-ups by August 7 at midnight to votenader.org wins.

Open to legal U.S. residents, 18 years or older at time of entry.
