This is a post from Pascal:
Today ACT launched Dare to be Different, the 2020 election campaign.
I was there, four rows from the front. Please, take the time to watch this. Listen to the stories of these ordinary people wanting to make a difference. There was not a dry eye in the house while Karen Chhour spoke, they all did well in their areas. And of course, David Seymour played the crowd well.
There is only one way to make a change this election – party vote ACT. And I know, I’ve begged time and time again for donations but let’s be honest here – they cannot borrow, they are not a government that can (or ever would) spend taxpayer money for electioneering – they’re Kiwis like us trying to make a difference.
We need $1,000,000 in fundraising to run this campaign. David will tell the story of the donation that made the most impact on him. It wasn’t the $75,000 one. It wasn’t the $50,000 one. It was somebody who donated $13. They didn’t pick $10 off the menu and $20 was too much, but they believed in ACT enough to say $13 is what they can afford. And that’s how we win this country back from Labour, by helping ACT get the tools and the message out so we can help Labour move out of parliament. Your $5 donation helps. Every little bit gets us closer.
I urge you all to look at the whole video. Not a platitude or slogan unlike Cindy. No extolling us to “BE Kind”.
Before watching this video, I was worried about the calibre of those who would be getting into parliament as an ACT MP. If all these speakers get elected, then our country is back on the right road to success.
PARTY VOTE ACT and Dare to be different.
