2012 Draft Sarah Committee - $20 or $10 for 2010 Challenge

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin's supporters who are on the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee email list have already received the letter below, which was sent out on New Year's Eve. Those who aren't, first, what in the world are you waiting for, and second, what in the world are you waiting for?! No, seriously.

The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee is the only FEC-registered draft committee, which means it's official, it's held to federal guidelines, and it's leading the charge to encourage Governor Palin to run in 2012.

In addition to our 2012 efforts, the Committee is dedicated to supporting the Governor in general. We've demonstrated that support with our physical presence at events from New York to Alaska--and many states in between. We continue to demonstrate that support with the work that goes on in our local areas across the country.

All Organizers are volunteers who believe in the cause, and we're counting on those of you who also believe to get involved. So be sure to sign up at our website by clicking here, and while you're there, take a look around.

The letter below is our $20 or $10 for 2010 Challenge. Check it out, and please answer the call.

Let's hit the ground running!

Dear 2012 Draft Sarah Committee Supporter,

We are on the verge of entering 2010, so let me be the first to wish you a Happy New Year!

2009 has been a challenging year for the nation, but one where Governor Palin has taken a stand on a variety of issues that are so crucial to America’s progress. It’s also the year of her best-selling memoir, Going Rogue. I am confident 2010 will be even more exciting.

The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee started 2009 by attending CPAC in February, which brings me to the point of this correspondence. CPAC, held in our nation’s capital, is the leading conservative gathering in the country. It was at CPAC where we were able to tell people more about the Committee, get feedback from Americans regarding Governor Palin, and acquire valuable contact information as we gained a myriad of online newsletter subscribers and volunteers. February is fast-approaching, and once again the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee wants to have a presence at CPAC.

We need your help.

In honor of 2010, I am asking you to start off the year with a $20 or $10 donation—or more—to the Committee. Contributions will go first towards booth rental and then towards material such as bumper stickers, flyers, shirts, and buttons for CPAC. Many of you are faithful to donate to SarahPAC; would you consider going above and beyond that contribution to make one to the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee as well, and would you consider making that contribution by the 10th of January?

We are doing important work, and even Governor Palin saw fit to thank us in Going Rogue. While we do operate independently of her, we are honored that she has taken note of our efforts. We want to carry on in this new year.

Please visit the website, www.2012draftsarahcommittee.com, to make your donation.

Thank you for considering a gift of $20 or $10, and Happy 2010 once again!

Hurry to join in this challenge by the 10th of this month! Thank you.

Good Grief! I’m Older Than Alaska!

I don’t have a problem with being 60 years old now. In fact, the thing that bothers me the most is how truly fleeting those years have been. Have I really lived that long, seen and done that many things that it accounts for my 60 years? Short answer YES! Longer answer would take too much time.

For someone born in the United States and lived all but one year and 6 months here, I remember when Alaska became a state. I also remember not being very concerned about it. After all, I was only nine at the time! I was more interested in Girl Scouts, scoring higher in Spelling than Jimmie Rae, and beginning to realize that math are science are not my best subjects.

I do take notice today, however, that Alaska has a birthday today. She’s 51 years old today!

Happy Birthday, Alaska! In your short yet celebrated history as a state, you have been a forerunner in contributing some of your best gifts to the lower 48. Including and especially Sarah Palin!

For that alone we owe you a debt of gratitude.
