During this season of gratitude we realize that all of the things SAVE is thankful for are due to your efforts.

We want you to know how much we appreciate your calls and emails to legislators. We want to thank you for your generous donations. And we want to honor all of the volunteers who have joined the Domestic Violence Legislative Project (DVLP), the Countering Abuse Misinformation Project (CAMP), and Campaign 2012.

Your many calls and emails have already improved Senator Leahy’s discussion draft of VAWA. Your generous donations have allowed us to distribute press releases, give dozens of radio interviews, and sponsor two public events in the last year, Hoax! and False Allegation Awareness Summit. Every one of your gifts, from $5 on up make a difference.

I want to take this moment to give a heartfelt “thank you” to each and every one of you who have committed yourselves to our success by joining the DVLP, CAMP, and Campaign 2012 .

Each month I am amazed by the number of people who join our DVLP conference calls. I love reading the articles, letters to the editor and op-eds written by our CAMP crew. And I get a kick out of seeing photos of Campaign 2012 members wearing their t-shirts and hearing how the public reacts.

Know that you are a valuable part of SAVE. We do.

Know that you can make a difference…you already have, and together we will continue to do so!
