I don't want to ask for too much.

The truth is, I don't want to ask for too much. But as you know, with the end of the month tonight comes an important fundraising deadline for our campaign. We set an ambitious goal for February, and today is our last chance to hit that goal and prove that our movement for a Green New Deal is st…

70 people (including you?)

Friends — We’ve had a slow February and our fundraising has fallen a good bit behind where we hoped it would be as we approach our deadline tomorrow at midnight. Believe us, these goals are not arbitrary. We set fundraising goals so that our campaign and our movement can have the resources we ne…

$5...for what?

When you power this campaign, you’re powering the work we do every day to fight for this agenda. Friends — When you make your first $5 contribution towards our February fundraising deadline, you’re not just contributing $5 to Ed Markey's campaign for Senate. You’re contributing $5 for a Green New…

Let us save you some time

Friend — We’ll save you some time by keeping this quick. Three things: We’re five days away from the close of our February fundraising deadline. This is a crucial deadline for our campaign as we fight for the Green New Deal in Congress and gear up to support Democrats up and down the ballot. …

60% (emails)

We will continue to push for justice and make great progress for this country when we fight not alone, but together. Friend — Let me put something in perspective: In 2023, more than 60% of all the money our campaign raised online came from emails like these. That may not sound like much at first,…

Happy Anniversary to the Green New Deal 🎉

[signature needed] Expand the Court!

Friend — We need to talk about the Supreme Court. One of the biggest barriers to progress in America today is our far-right SCOTUS, and it’s time we take action to prevent the further rollback of our rights. If you agree, take just 30 seconds to sign our petition calling on Congress to expand th…

playing catch up

Friend — Truth is, we have to play a little bit of catch up this month. We fell a little short of our January fundraising goal last month, so we started from behind in February. Look. I don’t want to be spending my time writing fundraising emails like this, trust me. I would rather be talking ab…

Less than 1%

Friends — Here’s the thing. Less than 1% of our supporters actually take the step to support our work by making a contribution. And despite that, we’ve been able to power a successful Senate campaign and a diverse movement for progressive change and justice for all. Because all it takes is a few…

It’s time to stop holding back our democracy

Friend — Ed’s stance on the Senate filibuster has been clear for years now: Abolish it once and for all and pass much-needed legislation to secure our democracy. In too many ways, the extremist far-right has taken hold of our institutions and made it harder for our government to deliver the com…

“If everyone reading this..”

Friends — You’ve probably heard or read me say the phrase, “If everyone reading this chipped in right now, we’d meet our goal today.” It’s kind of a mind-blowing idea, isn’t it? A contribution of $5 or $10 may not seem like much. And it’s certainly true that one person’s contribution alone isn’t…

A $5 movement

Friends — $5. That amount is so crucial to meeting our goal before our first fundraising deadline of 2024. You may be wondering what a $5 contribution can possibly do when we’re up against corporate PACs, fossil fuel interests, and far-right mega-donors who want to stop our movement in its track…
