OUCH! DOING POLITICS AIN'T CHEAP
Running effective political campaigns costs money, and we are currently looking into alternative ways to help fund our 2021 Welsh Parliament regional election campaign.
£200 WAS JUST THE BEGINNING...
A BIG THANK YOU to EVERYONE who helped us raise our first £200 - this will go towards a pasting table, "2nd Vote Green" banners, an A-board, and office expenses/sundries.
We've budgeted an effective Senedd election campaign to be around £10,000, yes.
Delivering an election leaflet to every home in the South Wales West region, for example, can be around £5,000.
We hope to pay for billboards, bus advertising, radio advertisements, posters on bus stops and train platforms. We need 11,000 Labour '2nd voters' to "2ND VOTE GREEN" to elect Wales' first Green Member of the Senedd.
How exciting is that?!
MONEY'S TOO TIGHT TO MENTION?
We understand, during the current pandemic, money might not be easy to come by, so we're asking our members and supporters to go up their attics, or sort out their garages, and sell unwanted stuff in car boot sales or on Ebay.
If our 200 regional members each donate £1, we'll reach £200 easily, but if each person can raise a minimum of £50 by selling junk, then we will reach our election campaign target of £10,000 with ease!
A regional Green Party member has already held a car boot sale and raised £68 in one morning!
So, RECYCLE YOUR RUBBISH, and turn it into a great Green Party election campaign, so we can elect Wales's first-ever Green member of the Senedd in Cardiff!
AND DONATE THE MONEY YOU RAISE TO THIS CROWD-FUNDER!
NB The South Wales West region consists of the the following constituencies: Swansea East, Swansea West, Neath, Aberavon, Gower, Bridgend and Ogmore.
