We currently have our newspaper database e-mail project launched and moving forward in NC, NV, OH, MD and VA but we need to get the project launched in the other 42 states help compiling. If you don’t volunteer, your state will get missed . . . all we need is at least 2 volunteers for each state, more than 2 for each state is far better because it reduces the work load for each volunteer. In most state without at least 2 volunteers from your state, we won’t even launch the database project for your state. There is no staff on this end, you’re it! It’s called grassroots activism for a reason. If you don’t do it, it simply doesn’t get done, that simple. We just need to get it accomplished over a period of several weeks if possible. Just let us know if you’re willing to work on the project for your state and we’ll split up the workload based upon how many volunteers we receive for your state. You won’t be contacted until we have enough volunteers from your state.
Upon completion of the project, we’ll have a contact database to use to support the cause from this end with press releases, stories, data, information, legislation status, etc. (and as we continue to keep our story in the press, you'll be able to use the complete list as well.) That way, each state gets our support from this end. Without the database your state gets left out, that simple . . . it’s not going to happen without YOU.
Basically, you would be assigned letters A through D or T through Z for example and you would do the same research associated with this weeks outreach effort by compiling e-mail address contact points for newspapers in your state. Then we will compile a data base for your state and be off and running.
How to volunteer . . . simply shoot us a FB message along with your e-mail address of what state you’re in and that you’d like to help. That’s it . . . we’ll compile the volunteers from you state and be in touch when we have an adequate number of volunteers from your state.
Hesitant to volunteer . . . we totally understand. Once we ended up in the Army and the other time we volunteered we ended up working to pass HR3149 . . . the Army worked out “ok” and the jury is still out on this volunteer effort ;-) No pressure whatsoever, we just need this accomplished somehow and this is the ONLY way it will happen.
