A New Halfway Goal
JDRF advocates across the country accomplished an enormous feat by reaching our goal of 250 Promise Campaign meetings one month early! We initially set this goal for December 31, but we accomplished it on November 30. However, that doesn't mean we can let up yet! We still need to reach our overall goal of 432 meetings with Members of Congress.
One thing that will help us get there is to make sure that we utilize the month of December to our best abilities even though we already reached 250. Therefore, we have set a new goal to reach by December 31: 280 Promise meetings scheduled or held. We ended November with 51, so we only need to get 29 meetings on the books this month. If you are thinking that this goal is crazy with the holiday season, I can assure you that it is attainable! We scheduled 31 meetings in the month of December during the last Promise Campaign, and we only need 2 less than that this time around. We already have 6 meetings this month, so we need just 23 more to get there!
Let us know if you can join us in our quest for 29 meetings this month by signing up to attend a meeting on the Promise website. If you are interested and able to coordinate a meeting, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will happily let you know where you can help out. Now let's give our legislators the gift of Promise and schedule some meetings!
