Hattip to Firefly Dove:
Stand For Marriage Maine needs help! Their coffers have run completely dry and we still have a month to go in the campaign. Maine is the second state that has had the opportunity to actually vote on their marriage law. If we lose in Maine, the opposition will be able to say that people voted gay marriage in.
I was on twitter yesterday and saw a link go by with the comment “I’m obsessively compulsively hitting refresh—donations are pouring in for equality!” I went to the link and they had a goal of 30,000.00 with a graphic showing how much had been donated. I looked at the number and hit refresh. Every time I refreshed, the number increased. In the five minutes that I monitored the page, the amount had risen thousands of dollars. Imagine what damage they can do with that kind of firepower unopposed.
The opposition is martialing it’s forces and donations are pouring in to their coffers from gay marriage advocates all over California and other states nationwide. After their stinging loss in California, they can’t afford to lose Maine. They’re pouring all their attention and resources into the state hoping to tip the election. There is a dire need for donations. We can’t afford to lose this fight. You can’t protect marriage with empty air. Please forward this message to friends, neighbors, churches, ANYONE who can help! and let’s get them the help they need to win.
