I want to use this last day of February to give you a preview of what we plan for March. We're going to make a concerted effort to set records in all areas next month, starting tomorrow!
Our previous best month for recruitment was June of 2005 when we recruited 2,824 new DC Downsizers. We want to exceed that in March.
Our previous best month for messages to Congress was also June of 2005 when we sent 43,031 messages. We want to exceed that too.
Our previous best month for media interviews was 5 in May, 2005. Thanks to the financial help DC Downsizers gave us this month we expect to blow past that number in March.
Setting new records will be tough. We'll need your participation. But that's not all we have in store.
We'll announce the first two members of our new RTBA Coalition tomorrow.
We hope to launch the MeetUp groups for the "No Legislation Without Representation Conference" as well.
And we now have the first draft of a new piece of Downsize DC legislation in-hand.
Thank you for making all of this possible. Specifically, I would like to thank the following people for helping us meet our February fundraising goals yesterday: Dr. Mike Rosing, Steven Anderson, Alec Marken, Timothy P. Sauer, David W. Landram, Scott Moyer, Zachary Ullevig, Mike G., Jonathan Harstein, Edward W. Sudduth, Dick Clark, David M. Carson, and Joe Byrne.
Special thanks to Arlo R. Hansen and Leslie J. Russell for starting new monthly pledges. If you would like to help us get started on our March fundraising goals by making a donation or starting a monthly pledge you can do so by clicking here.
Let's get ready to rock-and-roll in March. Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.
