The holidays are rapidly approaching and with them numerous gatherings of family, friends, and co-workers. These all present excellent opportunities to discuss medical cannabis with the people in your life and ask them to support the cause by signing the petition.
Just by carrying a petition with you to these holiday events, you can likely gather 25 signatures, if not more. Will you commit to collecting at least 25 signatures this month?
If you have been meaning to get started with signature collection, this is the perfect time to do so! There are also many upcoming events where you can learn how to circulate the petition, pick up supplies, and meet your fellow advocates. In addition to our regularly scheduled notary and petitioner events, we are holding several volunteer appreciation parties over the next couple weeks, with complimentary food and beverages for both existing and new volunteers:
Kansas City: Thursday, 12/7, 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Prohibition Hall (1118 McGee Street, Kansas City, MO 64106)
- Springfield: Saturday, 12/9, 3:00-5:30 p.m. at Springfield Brewing Company (301-305 S Market, Springfield, MO 65806)
- Saint Louis: Thursday, 12/14, 6:00-9:00 p.m. at C.J. Muggs (101 W. Lockwood Ave, Webster Groves, MO 63119)
Now, that is a solid total for the month, but to complete signature collection on budget and within our current timeline, we need to average 15,000 signatures each of the next four months. That will give us approximately 135,000 volunteer signatures, which will be supplemented by 130,000 signatures from our paid petitioner workforce and place the issue of medical cannabis on the ballot next November.
We are entering the stretch run of our petition drive, and we need your help to sprint across the finish line!
- If you plan on gathering signatures, but haven't gotten around to it yet, now is the time! You can find upcoming petitioner events on our calendar here or reach out directly to a volunteer coordinator in your area.
- If you are already gathering signatures and have friends who you know want to get involved but need an extra push, forward them this email and ask them to sign up for volunteer updates.
- Regardless of whether you can volunteer, you can help fuel both our volunteer and paid petitioning efforts by making a contribution of $10, $25, $50, or $100 now!
As usual, we want to spotlight the amazing volunteers who gathered the most signatures in September:
10. Daniel Seymour: 328
9. Ann Rohan: 366
8. Jeff Mizanskey: 392
7. Rita Yencarelli: 450
6. Douglas Keeth: 466
5. Russell Holt: 513
4. Ron Plackemeier: 539
3. Sarah Lango: 543
2. Damien Johnson: 617
1. Jennifer Shockley: 659
Help these volunteers continue their dedicated work by making a contribution of $10, $25, $50 or more now.
I'm know you have received a number of emails from us over the past week, but I had to tell you that we are only $1,000 away from our $10,000 goal for grassroots contributions this month! You can bring this quarter to a successful conclusion by contributing $10, $20, $50, $100 or more now!
The goal is within reach, but we still need your support to make it happen. Go here to contribute now!
