------UNDER CONSTRUCTION!------

 

VOLUNTEER AND DONATE!

Introducing an innovative Democrats Abroad Lake Chapala program
that includes special perks for you.

 

Team Victory!  {Logo to come, with possible tagline}
______________________________

 

Join us so we can do more, be more and–yes we can!—win those U.S. midterms.

What you’ll get—besides satisfaction of doing the right thing!—includes:

  • A Democrats Abroad mug.
  • Two-for-the-price-of-one drinks at many Democrats Abroad gatherings.
  • Customized badge linking you with Democrats Abroad.
  • One-on-one opportunity to meet with DA leaders to tailor your volunteer commitment.

We’re guessing that you, like us, are heartsick at the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion rights,
the Jan. 6 hearings and so much more—and wish you could help make things better.  

Well, now’s your chance!

Why we need your help now.

We are the largest chapter of U.S. residents in Mexico and also one of the most active. In fact. this election year starting in February, we began assisting voters virtually every week at the Lake Chapala Society (LCS). It's a lot of work but so worth it as we've helped hundreds of voters request their ballots and more.  

Plus, on selected Fridays beginning in July, we're adding tables at LCS. Voter assistance is our primary purpose, and we are happy to be providing increased assistance opportunities for the primaries and general election.

But frankly, despite our vast membership, we’re an all-volunteer organization and stretched very thin—in terms of volunteers as well as the budget to pay for media advertisements about how we help get you all registered.

Our answer is a new program: Team Victory!

Team Victory combines increased volunteer help with more stable fund-raising.

We’re inviting you to join Team Victory. Volunteer and also become a Dems Abroad donor.*  Here's how:

  • Donate $150 or more in 2022 and commit to future donations to Democrats Abroad Lake Chapala. You can even make 12 monthly $12.50 payments. Couples get a special rate of $225 for both of you. And we will assist with online credit card donations, just to make it easier. 
  • As for volunteer help, you can make voter phone calls from home. Or work with us at LCS to help voters request their ballots. And there are many other volunteer opportunities available. 

*You´re an automatic Team Victory member, if you already donated $150 or more in 2022 and volunteer with us. We so appreciate it!

______________________________

To find out more about Team Victory—and to sign up for your online donation and to volunteer:

  • Email [email protected] 
  • Or stop by the Democrats Abroad table at the Lake Chapala Society—under the blue umbrellas on the patio just inside the LCS grounds—on Friday, July 8, 11 am–1 pm. {More dates to come.}  

AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
