Thanks so much for your engagement with us at the Tompkins County Workers’ Center (TCWC) over the years in order to build our collective and local grassroots labor movement!! We at the TCWC have historically realized how very important it is for us to raise the money we need to raise from our grassroots base, so that we always remain rooted in our community, which OF COURSE very much includes you!
Tomorrow/Friday, June 1st, we at the TCWC are participating in the local Giving Is Gorges fundraising campaign online. Please join us in the effort by ‘throwing in’ and contacting your friends, family, or online networks and see if THEY would also consider supporting the TCWC in whatever way they’re able to do.
If you are willing to participate with us (and this can be started from the time you receive this email until tomorrow/Friday, June 1st) there are TWO WAYS you could do so:
- Share our call to action and a link to TCWC’s main page on the Giving is Gorges site. Just send the link to folks you know who care about workers’ rights! The way you would then share is either with whomever you feel comfortable with sharing via email or on one of your social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.
- Create an account through the Giving is Gorges site and become one of our Champions with your own fund-raising page connected to the TCWC. The link will take you to TCWC’s main fund-raising page for the campaign. At the top are two buttons: Donate, and Fundraise (you can click this one to create your own fund-raising page for TCWC! It asks for your name, email address, and a password and you’re all set, OR you can sign up with Facebook). Here’s an example of what Pete Meyers was just able to easily create!
P.S. Please remember that this year donations can be made and received before June 1st.
