ActBlue Kickoff Campaign

The Christian Burridge for Congress campaign kicked off its ActBlue recruitment campaign on Thursday. ActBlue is an online clearing house where people can donate online and the money is forwarded to democratic candidates. Many people come to the campaign and ask how they can help. This program is a simple way you can help with very little time and very little money. Here is how it works:

1. Log on to our ActBlue page at the campaign's fundraising site.

2. Insert the name of your fundraising campaign in the first line. (Later, you can add multiple candidates to your profile.)

3. Put in your name or your organization in the next line.

4. Then make your pitch that is crafted to your friends, family, and associates when they consider donating to Christian Burridge for Congress. Be sure to talk about your beliefs and your connection to Christian Burridge when making your pitch.

5. Insert a personalized name to go on the URL so that when you tell your friends where to donate or insert the URL address in your email it will be easy to remember.

6. Upload your profile.

7. After the profile is uploaded you are given a chance to make a donation. Please set an example by making a donation at this critical step. Whether you donate hundreds or $5, $10, $25, or $50 it doesn't matter just donate so you will appear as a fundraiser on the "see who's raising" site.

8. Write an email message endorsing Christian Burridge with a request for your friends, family and associates to login under your site to make a donation.

9. Send this message to your contacts in your email address book or call your friends and refer them to your site.

We will be keeping track of those who are raising for our campaign. The top ten raisers will be invited to a VIP reception with Christian on the night of the election. Everyone who is listed on the "see who's raising" site will be entered into a drawing to win a one week of lodging and vacation at a Utah recreational area.
