It’s just a fact that every campaign must dedicate a lot of energy to fundraising; to hire staff, put ads on television, and run aggressive field campaigns.  Most depend on huge contributions from wealthy donors in the state, and from around the country.

But in our last financial quarter you helped us prove that everyday folks can make a difference.  

In the last 3 days of the quarter we received just under 100 $26 contributions from Facebook, Twitter, Myspace friends, and bloggers like you.

I can't begin to describe how meaningful it is to see the investment you've made in our message about Oklahoma's future.

To date, we've had hundreds of early supporters donate under $100.  This has energized us even further to connect with our strong online community that we know can make a difference.

So with your help, we launched the Change Makers.

Most of us have a big jar of change sitting on a dresser or in a shelf.  We're hoping you can help us find 10 of your friends who are excited to cash in $5, $10, or whatever they have in their change jar for a better Oklahoma. With you as our advocates, I know we can make even more friends and make the Change Makers the most powerful part of our campaign.

Join the Change Makers today by signing up on our website.  We'll send you all of the details you need to stay organized and introduce us to 10 of your friends.

Sign up to be a Change Maker today, and help us create change with change!


When you sign up to be a change maker you will receive a packet in the mail with the necessary tools to help you keep track of your progress. You’ll work with our staff to come up with ideas and the best people to reach out to in your daily lives. You can download the form here and email the campaign with questions here.

Thank you so much for your continued support, and for recommending this diary.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
