Hello A

  • Print

Hi A -- there are just a couple of days left in 2019, and I still need your help.

Corporate bosses and their lobbyists aren’t planning New Year’s resolutions that save the bees, protect our orangutans from dirty palm oil, or challenge the spread of hate online.

That job’s on us: you and me.

And right now the best thing you can do to put people and planet before profit is to donate a few coins today.

We’ve still got a little further to go to meet our budget for 2020: we need to raise CA$63,100 by 31st December. So please can you chip in now to stop corporations trashing our lives and our planet?

Thank you for all that you do.

John

P.S. You might have noticed we’re sending a lot of emails right now. That’s because, as the year comes to a close, we really need to make sure we can keep going after corporations behaving badly -- even if their budgets are a thousand times bigger than ours. We rely on small donations from members like you.

Here's my original email:




A,

My name’s John Curry. I mostly work in the back office managing the budget at SumOfUs, so I don’t usually send you emails.

Before leaving the office to celebrate the holidays with my family, I always do a final check of our budget.

I just finished going through the numbers for 2019 -- and to fully fund all the important fights we face next year, we need to raise CA$267,802 by December 31.

A, will you help close the gap?

2019’s been tough. The rise of the right wing, political chaos in many countries, the devastating fires in the Amazon. It's been a lot to take in, day after day this year.

But I’m lucky because working for SumOfUs, every day I see people like you, A, signing petitions, sharing actions, contributing ideas and chipping into to fund the fight back. You never give up. That’s what keeps me going.

You’re not afraid to take on even the biggest corporate bullies like Bayer, Google, and Nestle. When they try to silence us, you don't respond with fear, but with courage.

And you know what really inspires me? These winning campaigns are funded almost entirely by small donations from members like you. This is true people power.

In 2019, 137,602 people just like you chipped in 327,356 single donations to pay for essential legal support, targeted advertisements, surveys to prove to politicians that people care, viral videos to send corporate PR bosses into a panic, and much more.

But A, I’ve crunched the numbers and if we can’t pull together CA$267,802 more before December 31, we’ll have to scale back our campaigns in 2020.

I believe you don’t want that to happen. Can you be one of the core team of supporters that keep us going?

Thanks for always showing up A. I trust we can count on members like you to keep us strong.

Thanks for all that you do,
John and the team at SumOfUs
