VERY IMPORTANT



WILL YOU MAKE JUST ONE PHONE CALL TO SUPPORT ESTABLISHING 9/11 AS A NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE?



We need everyone to make just ONE phone call today, tomorrow or Wednesday to support the 9/11 day of service and remembrance initiative.



The seven year campaign to establish 9/11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance is at a critical moment and coming to a head. This week, the U.S. Senate will start debate on the ServeAmerica bill (S. 277) which includes the provision offered by Senator Charles Schumer and Rep. Peter King to officially establish 9/11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. We already secured passage of this provision last week in the House of Representatives. But the Senate will be tougher!



And we only have this week to make it happen!



As a member of the 9/11 community you can make a real difference right now -- helping to put us over the top -- by agreeing to call the office of just one senator: U.S. Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) even if you do not live in his state. Senator Specter is key to our efforts and he represents a state impacted by the events of 9/11. Our goal is to generate 500 calls to Senator Specter's office over the next 24-48 hours, which means we need a lot of participation. All you need to say is the following:



"I am calling as a member of the 9/11 community to strongly urge Senator Specter to vote in favor of, and actively support the ServeAmerica bill, (S.277). This bill is being debated in the Senate this week and includes among other vital national service initiatives key suppprt for establishing 9/11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. This is very important to me and the 9/11 community." That's all you need to do. (If you are ambitious, feel free to also call any other Senator you want as well!).



Here is Senator Specter's phone number...calls work far better than email. If you get a busy signal, be persistent. You'll get thru.



US Senator Arlen Specter

202-224-4254





IF YOU ARE WILLING TO MAKE THIS ONE CALL, PLEASE EMAIL DAVID PAINE TODAY AT david.paine@MyGoodDeed.org.



Thanks so much,
