“What is the Million Conversations Campaign and how will it work?”
Since we started fundraising the $1-million it will take to start one million conversations with Canadians in 2012, I’ve been emailed that question a lot.
This video explains everything.
(Don’t forget that because of the generous tax credit on political contributions, that donation will only cost you $2.50 — the price of a cup of coffee!)
As National Director of the Liberal Party of Canada, it’s going to be my job to turn a million dollars into a million conversations.
Politics isn’t rocket science. It’s about people talking to people about the issues they care about, and offering real solutions that make lives better.
Whoever talks to the most people — and builds the strongest relationships — wins.
I’ve got bad news. The Conservatives figured that out eight years ago. They adopted a voter relationship database years before we did, and have since launched a telemarketing operation that makes thousands of calls each day “on behalf of the Prime Minister.”
Their approach is systematic, disciplined and explains why there are two Conservative donors for every Liberal donor – and why they’ve raised over $10-million more than us this year.
We can’t let this continue in 2012 — and we’ve got until midnight, Monday, December 12 to do something about it.
Neighbour-to-neighbour conversations. Living room meetings. National Days of Action on doorsteps. Telephone town halls. And ongoing telephone outreach. This is how modern campaigns are won years before a ballot is cast.
If you want to learn how the Million Conversations Campaign will help us rebuild one million relationships in 2012, you have to see this video.
You can also call 1-800-701-7789 (9am – 5pm, ET, Mon-Fri) to donate by phone.
Stay tuned Monday to find out how much we’ve raised so far.
