The National Nursing Network Organization received word this week that it is now an official a 501(c)4 non-profit legislative advocacy organization. As you are probably aware, many organizations and campaigns hire a lobbyist who is paid to go to Congress and advocate on their behalf. This is not the case with the National Nurse Campaign. We believe this campaign is for those of us who live on Main Street, not K Street.
Members of the National Nurse Team value the power each of us as individuals has to participate and make a difference in improving the health of our country. All three of our elected nurses in Congress began with nursing careers, and all three have made a huge difference in helping to improve the lives of nurses and ordinary Americans. It is our goal to do the same.
So when advertisers approach us, and ask if they can advertise on www.nationalnurse.org and pay us, we continue to refuse their offers regardless of what they are selling.
This campaign depends on you-and today we ask you, our supporters, to please make an on line donation by clicking the donate now button, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn where to mail a check.
We are asking for $20. For those who contribute $20, the team will place a certificate in your honor inside a packet that will be delivered to your US Representative during our March trip to Washington DC. A copy will also be mailed to you. Please know that it costs $20 to make up a professional packet of supporting materials about the Office of the National Nurse, so your donation is actually paying for this packet.
Supporters living in California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Vermont, and Virginia have already made donations. Please join them and add your voice to the Campaign for the National Nurse. You have the power to make the Office of the National Nurse become a reality.
