The tobacco industry launched a multimillion-dollar ad campaign attacking California?s Prop 29, ? a vital ballot initiative that will:
? Fund pioneering cancer research
? Prevent kids from getting addicted to cigarettes
? Reduce smoking across California and save lives
Big Tobacco wants to cloud the facts about cancer and protect their profits at the expense of children?s health. We?re going to fight back, but we need your help to clear the air.
Mike Bloomberg, a longtime supporter of cancer research, has stepped up and offered to match all donations to Californians for a Cure up to $500,000.
Your support will help fuel voter outreach by a coalition of leading public health organizations — including the American Cancer Society, the American Lung Association, the American Heart Association, the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids, LIVESTRONG and dozens more.
To combat the myths of the tobacco industry?s overwhelming TV ad campaign, the coalition needs the resources to run a robust grassroots campaign that gets the facts out with phone calls, mail, and door-to-door canvassing.
Please make a matching gift and help make sure voters learn the truth about the Prop 29 ? the California Cancer Research Act:
California can lead the fight against cancer and your support of Prop 29 today will help make sure we do just that.
Thanks for pitching in,
