We know that everyone has less time and money than they would like to do those things they would like to do, and to share with those causes they value. We have the same concerns.
Many people would like to be able to give $50 or $100, but feel like that would be taking food from their families. Here is an idea that may help us both! What if you spread that donation out over the course of a year? That $50 would be a $5 monthly donation, and that $100 could be a $10 monthly donation! Our donation link can do that for you automatically! AND WE ARE NOT OFFENDED by dollar to $5 dollar donations! How wonderful it would be if EVERYONE DID JUST THAT!
AND, we do realize that some people TRULY have no extra pocket change to share. For those folks, we still have a solution ~BUY4.
What is Buy4? It is a way to shop for things you NEED and buy anyway, online. It helps us, because we receive a percentage of what our users spend quarterly. One of our members has donated around $125 since Christmas just by buying Christmas gifts, dog food, grocery staples, gift cards, and other things she would have bought anyway. Her price was better than she could have done locally, and her purchases were delivered to her door! You can do that too!
Do your online shopping HERE. It won’t cost you a penny, but DUH gets a portion of every purchase!
• On Facebook and Twitter, you can join our Thunderclap campaign and help us reach thousands more people. It also helps when you ret-weet and share our messages!
As you can see, there are MANY ways to donate:.
We know times are tough, but there don’t seem to be any 1%-ers who are willing to support DUH on our journey west. And the arguments we’ve heard? I really support the idea of single-payer, but I can’t throw my money away on something that’ll never happen.” It sure won’t happen with that kind of attitude! “I think we need to give the ACA a chance to work before jumping on the single-payer bandwagon.” And how many people will get sicker, go bankrupt, lose access to care, and even die in the meantime? “I already give to other causes that will help achieve single-payer.” It’s true that there are many causes that are interconnected – ending Citizen’s United, restoring workers’ rights, taxing Wall Street to name a few – but DUH is laser-focused on pushing single-payer forward by spreading the truth and the passion on the trips we take.
We would rather not inundate all our sites and pages with pleas for money.
SO WE AREN’T GOING TO KEEP ASKING!
Each member of our touring team spends their own money to get to the places we tour. The expenses for our tour are for the tour itself. We travel on a shoe-string. The cost for the West Coast trip in April and May will be between 10K and 15K. We will be needing that much again in September for Colorado, MN, and the Western/Midwestern section. In April of 2015 we will need about that much again for our Southern Swing to end in DC!
Our West Coast adventure will start out in San Diego on April 11th and trek north through Orange County, Irvine, Claremont, Arcadia, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, San Francisco, Oakland, Chico, Santa Rosa, and Sacramento, in California. On April 26th, we’ll cross over into Oregon and visit Grant’s Pass, Eugene, Portland and Salem. In Washington, we’ll visit Fox Island and proceed to Seattle before returning home on May 4. The cities and dates have been confirmed by local advocates and organizations. Here is our CALENDAR.
Join us by driving with us from city to city, or by helping to fund the trip. We CAN do this, but, like true universal healthcare, we need
EVERYBODY IN, NOBODY OUT!
