Last Day Match: Double Your Donation
By . Debra Schrishuhn for Mike F., Donna, Mike H., Judy, Dan, Janis, Dr. Bill, Kim, and Bryan—your PDA National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004 to champion important progressive policies and to help elect progressive candidates. A few weeks ago, an angel donor in Arizona challenged us to raise $5,000 in donations of $100 or more. We’re very close to that number, but time is running out.
If you help us qualify for the match, we’ll to use these funds to hire field organizers for the fall campaign to help elect our Progressive Champions. Please click here and pitch in $100 or whatever you can afford to keep us organizing for progressive candidates and policies you care about.
Over the past two weeks, we’ve almost reached our $5,000 goal. We need your help now to make sure we receive $5,000 in matching funds. Thanks to everyone who has helped us get so far. If you haven’t pitched in yet, could YOU help us today? We know that for most people $100 is a lot of money to give at one time—in fact, the foundation of our loyal support from across the country comes from donations averaging about $18, and we appreciate every hard-earned dollar we receive. That’s why we STRETCH every dollar we get to the max.
Today is our last day to reach $5,000 in donations of $100 or more. Please dig deep and help us reach our goal today. If $100 is too much for your budget right now, please sign up to automatically donate $18–or whatever you can afford—to help keep PDA working for a more progressive world for all of us.
On September 8, we’ll be out in the streets to implore elected officials to address climate change and protect our land, air, and water from plundering corporations. We’re marching in parades, tabling at festivals, registering voters, and educating the public about progressive champions like Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Kevin De Leon, running for U.S. Senate; as well as Congressional candidates Randy Bryce and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. We’re also demanding action on voting rights, healthcare, election integrity, ending mass incarceration, and taking back our government from huge corporations and oligarchs.
We need rally signs and lapel stickers in particular to amplify our progressive message. All of our materials are union-made in the U.S.A. If we can raise $3,000 by August 31, we can also order a batch of “Healthcare not Warfare” and other T-shirts for our activists like you. Supplies are a recurring, year-round expense. Please help with a sustaining monthly gift of $50, $20, $10, or $5—whatever you can afford.
We deeply appreciate every single donation of any size. As a special incentive, the first three new sustainers at the $25 per month level or higher will receive an autographed copy of CODE PINK founder and PDA Advisory Board member Medea Benjamin’s new book, Inside Iran: The Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
For a more progressive future,
