Subject: 872... and Counting
Last week we began our Ten Days for Change campaign to reach 850 total donations
and 100 new volunteers. A few moments ago we reached our goal of 850 donations but
together we've surpassed it a full four days before Monday's midnight reporting deadline.
At this moment we have 872 total contributions.
Think about that for a moment.
Almost 900 contributions from people like you who have a voice and own a part of a
grassroots campaign that is not just competing, but flourishing, in a political environment
that has been dominated by political machines and special interests for far too long.
You've given your time, your passion and whatever you can afford to bring about real
change here in New Orleans.

That's just New Orleans politics as usual and it's exactly what our city doesn't need in
its next Mayor.

We want to send a message to people who think New Orleans can't move forward by
announcing on Monday that our campaign is built upon 1,000 donations from regular
people just like you.
Thank you for your continued support.
