Support the Texas Young Democrats

By Byron LaMasters

My apologies for the shameless plug. For the purposes of full disclosure, I am the Vice President of Finance for the Texas Young Democrats (an elected, unpaid position). Several other members of the BOR crew are also active in the TYDs. Katie is the Region 6 Director, and Karl-Thomas is the Region 6 Judicial Representative. Jim and Andrew are also members of TYD in addition to being former officers in the UT University Democrats.

We need to raise money for our administrative account in order to fund many of our activities and programs over the coming months. We have set a goal to raise $5000 online during the month of June. Click here for more information, or check out the extended entry. We certainly appreciate any and all donations. Thanks!

Update: I just spoke with our President, Mike Apodaca, and he says that we have raised $700 in the first two days of our fundraiser.

Texas Young Democrats needs your help! We would like to fill our "donkey bank" during the month of June with $5000 to help us with administrative cost and help us the build the future of the Democratic Party!

We are pleased to write that the Texas Young Democrats are strong, active and working across the state to make a difference. Our chapters across the state show this strength such as both University Democrats at UT-Austin and El Paso winning their "Organization of the Year" awards on their campuses for their work registering and turning out student voters. The Dallas County Young Democrats worked hard on the campaigns of Young Democrats, and volunteered and raised money for Lupe Valdez, the first Democratic Sheriff in Dallas County in over 25 years. Harris County YDs continue to make strides in Houston by assisting at home and even traveling to other parts of the nation to help democrats and our party. Our chapters around the state made a difference in 2004, and we are already making plans to improve upon our success in 2006.

We are proud of our success, but in order for the Texas Young Democrats to continue our work spreading the Democratic message, we need your help. For those of you not familiar with Texas Young Democrats, we provide several important services to the Democratic Party. We coordinate activities with our local young Democratic chapters and help plan projects. We have an internship program where we train young Democratic leaders and place them on the campaigns of Democratic candidates in the final months of each election cycle. Our local clubs reach out to students and young professionals many of whom are just forming their own political beliefs. Polls have shown that young people are the age group most likely to agree with Democrats on the issues, so it is critical that we have the resources to reach these voters and engage them in the process.

If you agree that in order for Democrats to be victorious again in Texas by engaging and energizing the young people of this state, then we hope that you will be able to join us in our $5000 in June fundraiser from June 6th through the 30th! The money we raise will help us with administrative costs over the upcoming year. These costs include improving membership correspondence, hosting workshops and trainings, providing funds for members to attend conventions, and finally beginning plans to make our 2006 TYD convention our best ever. We ask you to donate any amount you are able via PayPal $10, $25, $50, $100 or more to help our organization, or you can send a check.

We need your help, and with your help, we can turn our state blue!
