2016

My Project – Elect Bryan Caforio for Congress – Change Red to Blue

I invite you to help elect Bryan Caforio, my nephew, to represent the 25th Congressional District in California. Here is the link to an article than ran in the Los Angeles Times on December 9, 2015, the day he announced his candidacy. http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-bryan-caforio-steve-knight-20151210-story.html

My goal is to raise $7000 before the California Primary on Tuesday, June 7, 2016.

My strategy is to ask 1000 people for a minimum donation of $7.

I need your help!

Would you ask seven people to donate $7?

Would you ask these seven people to ask seven more people to donate $7?

My perspective is captured in the words of Marilyn Paul, “Small steps actually taken lead to more progress than great steps that never happen.

A donation of $7 is one small step that can help us elect a Congress that will take action.

Here is a flier you can use if you’d like to contribute through My Project 70. My Project 70-Donation Form

You can also donate directly to Bryan’s campaign through www.BryanCaforio.com. If you donate through Bryan’s website, please email me at Kathie@timeforsuccess.net so I can track donations toward the goal of raising $7000 through My Project 70.

I look forward to sharing more details with you about My Project 70. (Some friends and acquaintances may recall My Project 65 which I created to commemorate my 65th birthday in 2011. My Project 70 will commemorate my 70th birthday in 2016.)
