Our Most Important Financial Deadline!

Share this

We face our biggest financial deadline of the campaign in just eight days.

Can our team count on you?

Now that our petitions have been submitted to the state, we are building out a truly grassroots campaign to reach every corner of Missouri.

All eyes are on the most critical financial deadline at the end of June. Our opponents will be monitoring the success of our fundraising to gauge the level of support for medical cannabis come November.

Your support right now ensures that we end the second quarter on June 30 – just eight days away – in the best shape possible.

We have set a grassroots fundraising goal in the final week of $5,000.

This is the biggest financial deadline we’ve faced so far. Can you help us?

Your help has gotten this important campaign this far, submitting far more signatures than needed to the state. That was a big deal and our opponents took notice.

Now those same opponents are watching to see how much we can raise from our community. Can you help us reach our $5,000 goal by contributing $100, $50, or $25 now?

Just 210 To Go!

Share this

Back on March 15, the team at New Approach Missouri issued a challenge:Worth_County_Challenge.jpg

Help us reach 2,171 grassroots donors - the population of Worth County, Missouri.

In response, 166 new donors answered the call and contributed to the campaign! We were amazed and grateful.

We are now just 210 online donors away from our Worth County goal.

To demonstrate that we are truly a grassroots movement, we need your help to add 210 new donors today.

If you have already donated – thank you. Your support is already making a huge difference in getting our message out. Will you consider forwarding this email to five friends to join you in supporting our campaign?

We are just 210 new donors shy of our goal, and your support is powering this grassroots campaign to take our message to every corner of our state, from Worth County (pop. 2,171) to St. Louis County (pop. 998,954) and everywhere in between.

Please help us give Missouri patients safe, legal access to medical cannabis by contributing now and forwarding this message to your friends and family!


This Memorial Day

Share this

I’m Kyle William Kisner. June 22, 2004 was one of the most important days of my life – the day I enlisted in the Missouri Army Kyle_Helicopter.jpgNational Guard.

I spent over seven years with the Guard, serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan on separate deployments. My job was to work as a Signal Support Systems Specialist, operating and repairing communication systems in the field.

In Afghanistan, I was attached to the 1141st SAPPER Company out of Kansas City. The 1141st was a company of combat engineers and we were tasked with clearing one of the most dangerous roads in the country called Route Alaska. Nearly every day, my guys came under fire or were hurt clearing roadside bombs or IEDs. The work was incredibly hard and grueling.

Three brave, honorable, and courageous men I served with didn’t come home, and I’ve thought about them every day since, but especially around Memorial Day.

I also think about the soldiers like me, who were fortunate to come home, but who still grapple with PTSD, chronic pain and injuries from our deployments.

That’s why I am fighting so hard to pass medical cannabis in Missouri. Will you join me?

Kyle_Petitioning.jpgMy life is a testament to the need for veterans to have access to medical cannabis to deal with PTSD. For years since returning to the states, I struggled with opioid addiction, anxiety issues, sleep deprivation, and chronic pain. I felt alone, overwhelmed, and questioned why I had survived. 

Over the next few months though, I began to connect with other veterans around the state and across the country who were struggling with the same sense of loneliness and depression. These conversations resulted in a critical visit to Colorado, where I met veterans who had access to medical cannabis. They were sleeping through the night, had kicked addictions to prescription drugs, and saw their marriages and relationships strengthened.

Missouri Veterans deserve the same access to these kinds of life-saving treatments. Will you join me in supporting my fellow veterans by helping to pass medical cannabis?

This Memorial Day, I hope you will join me in honoring the sacrifice of so many Missourians who served and paid the ultimate price so that we can live in peace and freedom.

 

 

Very respectfully,

Kyle William Kisner
