|Diane -- |
The only reason that I'm here today, sending you this email as Chair of the Democratic Party, is because those people stepped up -- and I'm grateful for their support every day, because I know what a difference it makes.
Before midnight tonight, we need five people from your area to join in and help Democrats do what my friends in Broward County helped me do: Win elections.
We're asking you to pitch in what you can, like $3 or so. And that's why it seems kind of unreal when I read about the latest right-wing billionaire who's dumping tens of millions of dollars to help extremist Republicans. I saw the other day that the Koch brothers are committing $125 million to back their candidates this fall.
$125 million? Can the $3 that people like you contribute to support Democrats stack up against that kind of cash?
Absolutely, and let me tell you why, Diane. Your $3, combined with the tens of thousands of other Democrats who are investing in this movement, will help counter the Koch brothers, and it's going to help build the type of organization that a bunch of free-spending billionaires are just never going to be able to build.
Trust me, I don't take asking you for $3 here and there lightly, Diane.
If you're able, pitch in before the deadline at midnight, and take ownership of this organization:
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Democratic National Committee
P.S. -- One of the things that makes us different from our opponents is that President Obama likes to take every opportunity he has to thank a supporter like you. That's why next month, he's going to spend some time with a grassroots supporter at an event -- and if you chip in today, you and a guest will be automatically entered to win.

This is a BFD:
The New York Times is calling President Obama's plan "the strongest action ever taken by an American president to tackle climate change" -- he's proposing new EPA standards to limit carbon pollution from existing power plants, the single biggest source of the pollution in the United States that causes climate change.
Diane, it should come as no surprise that polluters and groups that like things the way they are have already started fighting this with everything they've got. The best thing we can do is show just how many Americans believe this is the right thing to do.
Add your name right now -- stand with President Obama and support aggressive action to fight climate change.
Announcements like this are why we all do this work. It's proof that grassroots organizing really does pay off. Climate change activists have fought for years for EPA standards on carbon pollution -- and this week President Obama is making it a reality.
This fight is about our future, but the effects of climate change are being felt right now -- it's linked to stronger weather, from more frequent and severe droughts to floods, storms, and wildfires.
It's affecting public health, too. Over the past three decades, the percentage of Americans with asthma has more than doubled, and climate change is putting those Americans at greater risk of landing in the hospital. Over half of all Americans live in an area where air pollution levels are too often unhealthy to breathe.
But while we place limits on dangerous air pollution like mercury, arsenic, and lead, existing power plants have had no national restrictions on the amount of carbon pollution they can emit.
None at all -- until now.
The President's plan promises to cut carbon pollution from power plants for the first time, setting a new standard for action on climate change.
As I write this, powerful interests on the other side are lining up their dirty budgets to try to tear this down. They have plenty of allies in Congress that will try to stop us.
I'm asking everyone who cares about this fight to stand up and say so today -- stand with President Obama and new carbon pollution standards:
Organizing for Action
P.S. -- We've all been fighting for big action to fight climate change -- something that will really make a difference. This is it -- add your name today and let's fight for it.
Contributions or gifts to Organizing for Action are not tax deductible.
This email was sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
|All of our successes, and all of the things we're going to achieve together, are because of people like you, Diane, who step up when you can and do your part across the country.|
If you can be one of the 12 people we need from your area to support Democrats before tonight's fundraising deadline, please chip in $3 or more today:
P.S. -- Your donation will automatically enter you for a chance to meet me in New York -- your flight and hotel are on us. Enter today, and I hope I get the chance to thank you in person for everything you do.

|I'm tapping you to be one of 18 Democrats in your area to chip in before tomorrow's deadline, Diane.|
Democrats are in one hell of a fight this year, and we need everyone to pitch in and do their part -- because this is our last chance to give Barack a Congress that will work with him.
Chip in $3 or more before midnight tomorrow:
P.S. -- If you make a donation of any amount today, you'll be automatically entered to fly out to meet Barack at an event in New York next month. Your hotel and airfare are covered, so this is a really great opportunity to help Democrats and have a fun trip.

Without people like you stepping up in your area, the outcomes of these big races in November will be decided by the dollars pumped in by special interests and shadowy groups.
The way we prevent that from happening is by all of us -- including 20 people like you in your area -- doing our part. Before the deadline on Saturday, chip in $10 or more to support Democrats:
We're going to win this, Diane -- but only with the help of folks like you. So, let's get to it!
All the best,
Amy K. Dacey
Chief Executive Officer
Democratic National Committee
You've been with us every step of the way -- during good and bad times -- and your support helps Barack keep fighting to move this country forward every day.
We've built a movement together, and Barack needs you with him now more than ever before. So before the end of the month, I'm asking you to donate $3 or more to elect Democrats who will support Barack like you always have:
P.S. -- If you make a donation of any amount today, you'll be automatically entered to fly out to meet Barack at an event in New York next month -- with your airfare and accommodations covered.

Democrats have a good shot at winning some critical races this November, and we have a fighting chance in some places you might not expect our party to be competitive. That's good news for you, me, and Barack -- but it also means that Republicans and their allies will be putting their resources into snuffing out our chances.
You know what I mean by their resources: Lots, and lots -- and lots -- of money.
We can't match them dollar-for-dollar, but we know there are other -- and better -- ways to win. Before Saturday's deadline, we need just 27 people from your area to step up and chip in what you can to help build our grassroots base. Will you be one of them?
Pitch in $3 or more right now:
We're in a critical fight, and we need to be smart about how we take on the Republicans. That's why it's so important to get a strong showing of support in every city across the country -- and you can help in your area.
From both me and Barack: Thanks for your commitment and support, Diane. We're in this together.
P.S. -- Don't miss out on this: Donate today, and you'll be automatically entered to win a free trip to New York to meet Barack. If you win, the Democrats will be picking up your hotel and airfare.
