Happy New Year!
I have a meaty post coming tonight, but for now I thought you would be happy to know that we have come within $60 of our goal, as you can see from the thermometer above.
With a bunch more calls this weekend, I think we are going to reach somewhere around $30,000, maybe higher in our Epiphany campaign. I will have the thermometer amended to keep you apprised. Thank you all so much for your help in getting us geared up for a year of activism and hope through CORAC. Because of your donations, I was able to offer assistance for coordinators who have enough people coming that they are thinking of renting a van.
If you have not donated yet and have a little cash you can spare, please help us out as we head towards Epiphany in Washington, D.C.
For many of us, our trip to Washington will be our first exercise in open activism – though it most assuredly will not be our last. If you are going, please contact Mary Lapchak at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is keeping track of everyone in what could be a real huge crowd. If we have your name, number and email address, we can keep you notified of rally points. I intend to get the people I know are there from our group together for a late lunch or early dinner on Tuesday. I’ll be staying in Maryland so the dinner will be east of the Capitol. I hope to see you there, but I can’t tell you where unless you have let Mary know you are there.
Only one link today, but if you are coming to Washington, I ask you to click on this one. It is an article from Michael Yon on things you should do for basic protection if you are going to participate in a rally, given that the left tries to disrupt these things every way they can.
