Tomorrow is Colorado Gives Day, a statewide, 24-hour blitz to support Colorado nonprofits.
We are writing today to ask for your support, because you of all people know what we can do if we head full-force into 2014.
2013 has been an incredible year for us, to say the least–and we’re ready for an even bigger 2014, because it’s critical that young people have a strong say in shaping the future of our state.
This year, we ran the biggest campaign in our organization’s history–and we need to be bigger next year. We helped pass game-changing elections access legislation–and we need to make sure young voters take advantage of it next fall.
After a year like this one, it is clear that what we are doing is working. And there’s more where that came from.
We want to increase the youth vote share in Colorado, train dozens more leaders, and engage hundreds more volunteers. And we’re ready for it: this year alone, we made over 100,000 voter contacts. In the last two years, we have registered over 40,000 voters.
If you believe Colorado deserves a more hands-on democracy, if you know young voters will shape our state in 2014 and beyond, and if you think we’re the right organization for the job: please support our work today to have a lasting impact on Colorado tomorrow.
Thank you for your support–past, present, and future. It means the world to us.
