This is it: Help Launch Huge New Plan for Victory

Dear MoveOn member,

We've done bake sales. We've done house parties. We've bought ads. Now it's time for the home stretch - getting out each and every vote where it counts. MoveOn PAC is planning an incredibly ambitious, groundbreaking, precinct-level neighbor-to-neighbor campaign we're calling Leave No Voter Behind. We want to hire 500 organizers in the last weeks before the election to work in 10,000 key neighborhoods in battleground states to get 440,000 new votes for John Kerry to the polls.

If anyone can do this, together we can. The best proven model for getting out votes like this requires paid organizers helping thousands of volunteers ensure that their neighbors get to the polls. It will cost $5 million to make this happen. So we can't do this without you.

If we can raise the first $1 million in the next 48 hours, we'll go for it. You can sponsor a precinct in a battleground state for only $500 and make a huge difference in this election. But whether you can give $25 or $2,500, we're asking you to help launch this program today. Just go to:


John Kerry has now accepted public funding and stopped raising money for his campaign. That means that the most effective thing you can do to retire President Bush is to support MoveOn PAC or the Democratic National Committee.

This is going to be an incredibly tight election. Most analysts believe that with so few undecided voters, this election is going to come down to three things: turnout, turnout, and turnout. The MoveOn network is in a great position to make the difference here: a personal contact from a friend or neighbor is the most effective way to get people out to vote. It's a tried and true technique but its impact would be unprecedented: together we can produce 440,000 new votes for Kerry in the most important swing areas - more than enough to win.

Of course, Leave No Voter Behind won't just happen in swing states. Whether your state is red, blue, or a tossup, we'll offer powerful ways that you can make this program effective, from making phone calls and to getting on buses and going to nearby states to help with the final push.

Using the Internet to make our work more efficient, we can cover each neighborhood for only $500. If you can support one or even 10 neighborhoods yourself, that's a huge boost to our efforts.

If that's too steep for you,

* with $225 we can knock on the doors of each of our target voters in one neighborhood,
* with $110 we can run the crucial final 2 weeks of our campaign in one area, or
* with $55 we can contact every voter in one area one last time on Election Day itself.

Help build our Leave No Voter Behind campaign. Just click here:


If we hit our goal now, we'll get back in touch with you next week to start the on-the-ground effort and tell you what you can do. This is the biggest challenge we've ever taken on. But with your help we can do it, and make history together.
