Last week Jane and I donated a full year’s worth of our retirement savings to pro-choice candidates in North Carolina. Specifically to ten individuals in important and winnable races.
The truth is, we’d rather die a year earlier than live out our lives under the Tarheel Taliban.
It’s now or never. Give whatever you can. Do it today.
Sorry to be a nag
I feel strong about this, and I’m not willing to stay silent. It’s time to step up people. Whatever you can do. Do it.

How much to give … and to whom?
If we don’t restore democracy in November, we’re screwed for decades to come. Rightwing extremists will cement control over government and a century of progress will be wiped away. Here’s what you can do.
Double your contributions. Whatever you’ve given to candidates in the past, double it. If you’ve never made a political contribution, start now. If you think you can give $10, do $20 instead. If you can give a thousand, make it two.
Give now. It takes time to build momentum. Early money matters. A lot.
Focus on North Carolina. If we’re not the most important battleground state, we’re in the top three. Contribute first to these candidates.
If it seems we’re asking a lot, we are. With personal freedom on the line, this election
is literally a matter of life and death for women in our state. If we don’t stop this takeover
now, there’s no going back.
From Jane, Janet, Nancy, James, and other good NC Democrats on behalf of 160 million US Women.
Will be posting links to "donate" pages later this weekend
Of course, you can go ahead and find them in the meantime. :)
Found an hour. Got it done.
More important that pruning nandina
