Today’s Downsizer-Dispatch . . .

There are three days left in the month of May. It’s been one of our best months ever.

* We’ve recruited 639 new Downsizers.
* We’ve sent 32,727 messages to Congress.
* Recruitment is ahead of last year’s pace by 412
* Messages to Congress are ahead of last year’s pace by 27,888
* We won our fight in Congress to stop legislation that would have regulated us.

But May has been our worst month this year for fundraising. Why is that, when everything else is going so well?

We need more help from more people to keep doing what we do.

This is a grassroots organization with a grassroots strategy: Recruit a huge army. Make our proposals seen and heard by everyone, everywhere, every day. Overwhelm Congress.

It’s a simple approach. All it requires is constant growth of all the key indicators all the time.

There are just three days left for us to make budget for May. Can you help us keep going by starting a monthly credit card pledge or making a one-time contribution? If so, you can do it here.

Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.
