Project aim

Include Greens in the election so social and environmental justice are in the debate – and London Borough of Barnet voters can vote for the common good.

About the project 

No achievement has been made without sacrifice. We are giving you the opportunity to make a very small sacrifice, the price of a bottle of wine or cake and tea in a cafe, to pay the deposit for our three candidates, have them on the ballotpaper and enable our volunteers to spread the Green word in this vital election. Barnet Green Party policies would save struggling people serious amounts of money.

It costs a lot to run a campaign, and 2015 is the biggest ever. The more this video is shared, the more people see it, and the more people give, the more likely we are to be able to afford a decent campaign.

The good news is that Crowdfunder campaigns have already been getting a fantastic response. Across England and Wales £220,000 has been raised enabling Greens to stand candidates in more than 90% of seats as well as targeting resources to get the message out. Thousands of people have given as much as they could afford, and our Crowdfunding deposits have not only broken records but made headlines locally and nationally.

If just 300 Barnet residents gave an average of £5 each, we would raise the deposits for all our three candidates: Ben Samuel, Adele Ward, and A M Poppy.

Money pledged in this way will only be deducted from your account if we get to the £1500 target before the deadline. We are hopeful about that - your money will go a long way.

Energy & Time

We would of course value your time and energy as well -

Can you share this with your local contacts - people and organisations and work-places please? Crowdfunding uses the power of the crowd so please be brave and give our fundraising a shout-out at any Barnet-based activity.

The more residents give, the more likely it is that local people will get a Green voice in 2015.
