In just 29 hours 2017 will turn to 2018, and our fourth quarter fundraising period will end along with the year. This week, we set out to beat last quarter's record of 63 individual contributors in the final week and raise more than $5k total.
As of this writing, 52 of you have contributed just under $2,500. That means we only need 12 more supporters like you to contribute $10, $20, or $50 to reach our goal for individual donors!
We are a bit further away from our goal for total amount raised, but I know we can raise $2,500 by midnight tomorrow. Please dig deep and contribute $20, $50, $100, or more now to help us reach our end of year goal and ensure that 2018 is the year that medical cannabis becomes a reality in Missouri!
Yesterday I emailed you about our quarterly fundraising deadline and our goal of exceeding the 63 individuals who contributed in the final week of the last quarter. Since then, 20 supporters have contributed nearly $500!
That puts us on pace to meet and even surpass our goal. We only need 44 contributors before Sunday at midnight to beat our previous mark.
We are just five days away from the New Year, which closes another quarterly fundraising period for our campaign for medical cannabis in Missouri. Each quarterly deadline represents an opportunity for us to prove the strength of our movement to Missouri's political class, and that is especially important as we enter the final few months of signature collection!
Within a few days of January 1, we will pass 150,000 signature mark, as well as open two new petitioner offices to expand paid collection into the final priority congressional districts. But none of that happens without your support. Contribute now to ensure that we can hit these vital campaign goals!
With your help, we hope to raise $5k by the end of 2017, but as important as the total amount we raise is the number of people who contribute. Each individual who contributes shows the state of Missouri that not only do they support medical cannabis, but they are willing to work to make it a reality.
In the final week of the last quarter in September, 63 people contributed, and I think we can beat that total. Go here to contribute now -- whether it is $2, $10, $25, $50, or $500 -- and prove the strength of our grassroots movement to bring medical cannabis to Missouri!
