Dear Ontario Liberals,
It certainly is an exciting time to be a member of our party. However, with a dynamic leadership race underway – including some very strong women candidates – it is important that we don’t lose sight of the bigger picture. The fact is, opposition parties will use the first opportunity to test a new Liberal Premier. We want to be prepared for any eventuality.
Before the last election we were able to give each of our 26 new woman candidates $4,000.00 toward their campaigns and we want to thank you for making that possible. Your contributions sent an important signal to women candidates: “We believe that you can win!”
Due to logistical challenges surrounding the leadership convention we are unable to hold our annual Margaret Campbell fundraiser for women candidates until next year. It also means that there is no money available for women candidates if an election is called sooner rather than later.
That doesn’t have to be the end of the story though. With your continued support we can send even more Liberal women to Queen’s Park next time.
The Ontario Liberal Party believes in our women candidates and we know that you do too. Help us to meet our ambitious new goal of $10,000.00 per candidate. Your donation today will help get more outstanding women elected! We hope you might consider matching your donation last year at our $300 ticket price.
You may donate securely on-line by CLICKING HERE, or by a cheque payable to: Ontario Liberal Party-Margaret Campbell Fund, and please send to: Ontario Liberal Party, Attention: Brooke Crewson, 10 St. Mary Street, Suite 210, Toronto, M4Y 1P9. Attached, you will find a donation form which may be faxed to: 416-323-9425 or scanned and emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations made before year-end are eligible for a generous 2012 tax receipt. We hope that you will join us in making this important investment in the future of our party and the next generation of Liberal women leaders.
