Please join me in my first Circle of Eight
In an attempt to create a sustaining base for the funding of repeal work in Oregon, OADP has launched a new campaign for 2015. Titled Circles of Eight, the plan is designed to establish an affordable way for many people to participate in a meaningful way.
The design is simple…… caring deeply about repeal of the death penalty, I have taken the role of a “Circle Leader” and am looking for seven friends who will complete my first “Circle”. You are among the people who I believe to be like-minded and want better alternatives for dealing with crime, violence and murder in our communities. I will continue to create circles as long as there are people willing to support this great cause in this easy and simple manner.
Each member of my circle can establish a level of financial support that is affordable for you. I have started my first circle with a pledge of $20 per month. You can match that, or sign up for $5 or $10 per month, or do something more. Your sustaining donation is totally up to you. Once my first Circle of Eight is complete, I hope to start another one.
My $20 is equivalent to two movie ticket per month, or two glasses of nice wine at a Salem restaurant per month, or a weekly latte at Starbucks. Do what you can afford to do in support of Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (OADP)
Please join me by going to the www.oadp.org web site, hitting the DONATE button. Indicate your donation to be monthly, fill in the form and help us repeal the death penalty as soon as possible.
Thank you for considering this request. I look forward to having you in my Circle. You do not need to tell me the amount, but do tell me you have joined my Circle. When we have eight, I will start another one. If you like this concept and know others who would join in, donate only have of your affordable amount to my circle and start one of your own.
