Dear WAPF friends,
As you might have heard, our California friends are working hard to pass Proposition 37, the initiative that would require the mandatory labeling of GMO foods. California is now in the final stretch.
We know GMOs are harmful yet as more and more studies come out telling us GMOs are beyond harmful, they are down right dangerous, it is confirmation that we need our food products labeled NOW.
I am forwarding to you a message from a California effort to launch and fund a billboard campaign because I know you all care so much about where our food comes from. So please…donate to this billboard effort that has been launched in support of Prop 37. We will receive photos of the billboards as soon as they go up so you will directly be able to see what your donation went to! Let’s be part of the exciting California billboard effort!

Hello all friends of Yes on Proposition 37, California’s GMO Labeling Initiative (yes, even those of you who live in other states!).
On November 6th, Californians will be voting on whether to support mandatory GMO labeling on food products.
This message that you are reading now is going out to Californians, but more importantly it is also going to those throughout the nation who are cheering this initiative on and want to help it pass soooooooo badly. No matter what state you live in we all need to ensure that GMO foods are labeled. As goes California, so goes the nation. Hence, Prop 37 could be the harbinger of things to come.
Yes, we do have each other …and you can help and be part of this historic movement with us.
So here’s the story behind this effort:
Some of us here in California want to get a BIG message out on Prop 37 directly to California voters via billboards ASAP. Each billboard costs around $800 to $2000. Time is of the essence as it takes time to get a billboard in place from design to display. All funds go to support Prop 37 immediately.
How do you donate/contribute? Easy. You can either pay by credit card, debit card or check. You can donate ANY amount from anywhere in the world. If you want to make a donation to this billboard effort, go to: https://rally.org/labelgmoscampaign.
All donations will be reported, meaning the law requires that we must at some point report your full name, occupation, address, employer and telephone #. However, donations above the amount of $999.99 (thank you!) need to be reported within 24 hours of the donation. Thus, if you donate more than $999.99 you will need to (1) immediately email Whitney Merchant at firstname.lastname@example.org, and (2) copy Yannick Phillips at email@example.com and (3) put in the subject line of your email “BILLBOARD ASAP.” This is necessary because California has strict contribution reporting requirements (this is a good thing).
For more information please contact Yannick A. Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 707-933-0312.
This billboard effort is separate from the official campaign http://www.carighttoknow.org/. We are not the official campaign. The official campaign will be working on a variety of sources of media communication. Our effort is only for billboards; if you want to help on other forms of media please contribute to www.carighttoknow.org. We hope that you will support all efforts that call to you to help the Yes on Proposition 37 movement.
We know that no matter where you are, you want to help. Here’s your moment.
