Marriage Equality's Club 500
Can you believe how far we have come in 4 years?
Public support for marriage equality has grown from 58% to 73% - that's one of the highest levels in the world!
In the last year alone, the Marriage Equality campaign has made HUGE progress:
- The Constitutional Convention voted by 79% in April 2013 to recommend to Government to introduce marriage equality for same sex couples.
- The Tanaiste called marriage equality "the civil rights issue of this generation" and said he expects a referendum on marriage equality in 2014.
- Multiple City Councils passed motions in favour of marriage equality.
Imagine what ELSE we can achieve with your help! With your support we can make marriage equality a reality in Ireland.
That's why we're launching the Club 500 for Marriage Equality.
Why Club 500?
At the end of 2012, our main funder The Atlantic Philanthropies wrapped up their funding to the LGBT sector in Ireland. They've been incredible allies in getting our campaign this far, but now, with the final push for a referendum on the issue by 2014, we need YOUR help to ensure we can continue our work!
What Can I Do?
We're looking for 500 supporters to become Marriage Equality partners by committing to give €20 per month to replace the funding from Atlantic and fund the vision - an Ireland where same sex couples, our families and our children are valued and protected equally.
There are 3 ways to sign up:
- Set up a standing order
- Monthly Donation by Credit Card (PayPal)
- Monthly Donation by Laser (MyCharity)
That sounds do-able, doesn't it? Your help can make it happen!
How Does My €20 Per Month Help The Marriage Equality Campaign?
Your €20 per month will build on the solid foundation already laid so we can continue our work to remove the marriage ban for same sex couples in Ireland.
We want that the Constitutional Convention's recommendation is acted upon by government as soon as possible. We want to do more media work, get more supporters out to visit their TDs, send more briefing materials to TDs and Senators, raise awareness with more of the general public about why marriage equality matters.
They say it takes a whole village to raise a child. We say it takes a whole community and beyond to make Ireland a fairer and more equal society.
We're better together. We hope you'll join us.
