Some of you may have missed the point of my email last week about the apocalyptic consequences of missing our fundraising goals tomorrow.
Perhaps referencing the end of humanity, hellfire, brimstone, dinosaurs, zombies, the Borg, the Sith, and rabid puppies didn’t adequately convey what would happen if we don’t show a good quarter.
Let me rephrase: We need you to donate, right now, (today) so we can win the most important election since Kelly Clarkson won American Idol.
Would you honestly prefer a generic fundraising email written by automatons, algorithmically designed to bore you? At least we’re being creative while asking you to support us in a race that will help determine the fate of education, your water, your taxes, your insurance rates, and more.
And that’s what it’s going to take to win SD40 and take the first step of securing the Senate and turning Florida Blue. We can’t just keep saying “Trump Trumpity Trump Trump Trump Pence Scott Russia” and hope that our electoral fate changes.
We need people to pay attention. We need to talk to voters about what matters in a different way. And right now, we need you to donate so we can actually get this done.
Please, in all seriousness, tomorrow really matters in the quest to turn things around.
I know everyone says that.
This time it’s actually true. Your money will make a difference.
