THIS IS THE LATEST EMAIL I RECEIVED FROM AVAAZ. ARE THEY COMMITTING FRAUD HERE? AND IF SO, HOW DO WE STOP THIS BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE?
PLEASE READ THE MESSAGE AVAAZ SENT TO ME, AND PROBABLY THOUSANDS OF OTHERS!
There's 6 days left -- response has been amazing, but with help now we can double our impact before the deadline!
Dear friends across the US,
We've just discovered a way to register likely anti-Trump voters at way below the cost of the best voter registration efforts out there!
I was shocked, but the numbers are holding steady. You've probably seen that Avaaz has taken the lead on registering the 8 million US citizens overseas (who normally don't vote!) with a dead simple tool that reduces the process from days to minutes! It's been covered in hundreds of media outlets.
Now with targeted Facebook ads that reach Americans overseas and link to the tool, we're registering new US voters for as low as $2.50 per voter. That’s pretty great -- we could get thousands of voters registered quickly! The election is close, registration deadlines are approaching and we need every vote, will you chip in ?
Some of the largest groups of expat Americans come from swing states like Florida. It was actually overseas Florida ballots that decided the 2000 election!
Avaaz and our American members are mobilized all over the world for this - with battle buses, rallies, and ad campaigns running from London to Berlin to Mexico city. BUT the law requires that US citizens must provide 100% of the funding for this effort. So how big the effort can go will be determined by how big the response to this email is!
Let's make it huge:
Our movement has fought and won many battles for environmental sustainability, human rights, anti-corruption, democracy, women's rights, and peace. Donald Trump is the greatest danger we've ever faced on all of these fronts. He could erase decades of progress. We have just weeks to stop him. Let's pull out all the stops.
