You and I have an incredible opportunity. But we must act fast. It's an opportunity to fan the embers that remain from the elections into a flame that burns for generations to come on behalf of the values you and I share. It's an exciting opportunity. But it requires that you respond before the end of the year in order to fully capitalize on it. It's called The Family Foundation’s "Ignite" plan. It's a long-term plan to ignite an enduring cultural transformation in Virginia. It's designed to ensure Virginia’s pro-family movement doesn’t "go home" thinking the election results are enough to stop those who work to undermine the timeless values you and I share. It's designed to turn the moment that was the 2009 and 2010 elections into a movement that takes back lost ground in the areas of life, liberty, marriage and family.

It strategically focuses on the areas of overlap in order to create synergy and, ultimately, maximize the impact of The Family Foundation's work.

Before you download the plan, though, I want to share with you a real blessing: In order to get us off to a strong start in implementing this plan, a small group of The Family Foundation's donors have offered to match every contribution The Family Foundation receives before December 31 — up to $25,000!

That means every donation made to The Family Foundation before December 31 will be doubled automatically. A $20 contribution becomes $40; a $50 contribution becomes $100! That’s why I hope you'll consider making a contribution today. Click here to make a secure online contribution.

Ignite may well be the most important plan The Family Foundation has ever undertaken, and the matching gift is an incredible opportunity to get it off to a really fast start.

You and I both know the people and organizations who work to undermine the timeless values we share are not going to "go home" just because they’ve had a couple bad elections. History shows us losing elections only serve to motivate them — and not just for the next election. Those who work against the principles The Family Foundation advocates are likely to become even more aggressive in training new leaders, pushing radical legislation, preparing voter education programs, and much more.

Simply put, if you and I don't start immediately working to build on the momentum of the 2009 and 2010 elections it won't be long until we end up right back where we started.

Like you, I want to build on our past victories because there is so much more to be done. From adding to past pro-life victories to reestablishing our religious freedom to bringing school choice to Virginia, we have many victories ahead! And the Ignite plan will play a big role in realizing them. But we need you today.

So please, take a few minutes to review the plan today. Thank you for your loyal support. I’m excited about the future and look forward to working with you to ignite an enduring cultural transformation in Virginia.
