Subject: Our Birthday
DownsizeDC.org was born three years ago today.
Happy birthday to us. Happy birthday to us.
During our first three years we have . . .
* Recruited 19,986 Downsizers
* Bombarded Congress with 661,101 messages and countless phone calls
* Distributed millions of educational, action provoking messages
* Built strong coalitions and won major legislative victories
* Created "The Read the Bills Act," "The Write the Laws Act," and "The One Subject at a Time Act"
* Begun to make our mark on America, slowly, but we believe, surely
Today was supposed to be an unveiling. We've been working on a new website and Congressional Contact System, seemingly forever. We are oh-so-close to testing it and then launching it, but . . .
As Pournelle said, "Everything takes longer and costs more."
So instead of our grand unveiling we'll just mention that today is our birthday, and if anyone wants to send us a birthday present we'd be happy to send you a gift in return . . .
We'll mail a "9/11: Press for Truth" DVD to your home. Here's how to get one . . .
If you're an existing monthly credit card pledger in good standing as of June 15, 2007, all you have to do is increase your monthly pledge by at least $1, and we'll send one to you.
If you're NOT
monthly credit card pledger then you can start a monthly credit card pledge of at least $6, or make a one-time credit card donation of $35 or more, and we'll send you the DVD. (Sorry, for technical reasons we cannot make this offer for PayPal pledges or donations).
You can make your contribution here.
Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.
