My name is Katrina Barnes and my husband and I have a four year old son named Booker. Booker was born healthy and is absolutely the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to us as a family.
About a year ago, Booker started having seizures. We took him to doctors and hospitals to find out what was causing the seizures and, hopefully, what we could do to stop or at least reduce them and help Booker lead a typical life.Read more
Our campaign to bring medical cannabis to Missouri patients has now gathered more than 25,000 signatures. With nearly a year until we must submit approximately 260,000 signatures to the Secretary of State's office, we are putting ourselves in an excellent position to qualify for the November 2018 ballot!
However, reaching our goal requires collecting hundreds of signatures day in and day out and for that we need consistent, long-term support. Can you help over the long haul by making a monthly pledge of $15, $10, or just $5?
Spread out over the course of the next year, a small $10 monthly pledge will add up to over $100, and, taken together, these recurring contributions can form a solid foundation for the campaign's regular expenses. If you cannot make a recurring pledge, please consider making a one-time contribution of $10, $25, $50 or more now and help us continue to grow our signature numbers!
Cities across the state held Earth Day celebrations this past weekend, and our volunteer petitioners exceeded expectations by gathering thousands of signatures in just two days. We're still notarizing and counting all of them, but the haul appears to be around 5,000 signatures, pushing us towards 20,000 signatures total!
Our campaign to bring safe, legal medical cannabis to Missouri patients has now collected more than 15,000 signatures, and that has only been possible thanks to the hard work of volunteer petitioners across the state. We want to acknowledge and thank every volunteer who has submitted even one signature, and some volunteers have truly gone above and beyond and deserve special recognition for the time and effort they have dedicated to this cause.
In the interest of celebrating our volunteers, we plan to periodically share with you our Volunteer Scoreboard, featuring the volunteers who have collected the most signatures. As of Monday morning, the totals for the top ten signature gatherers stand as follows:
Signature collection is going very well, but the fact is that if we can't expand our capacity by continuing to add volunteers and bringing in a signature collection company later this year, it will bust our budget and timeline. The less time we have to gather signatures at full speed, the more we must rely on paid collectors, and the higher their price will be. That makes our efforts this spring absolutely crucial to oursuccess!
If we can continue on our current trajectory, we will make the ballot, and we will win, but that will ultimately be determined by supporters like you. You can keep us on pace for victory by contributing $10, $25, $50, or $100 now!
