Defend Marriage: Win a Cruise

Same-sex marriage is legal now in California, but it is in danger. On November 4th, Californians will vote on Proposition 8, which, if passed, will make marriage only an option for straight people. 

For a while, it looked like Prop 8 was well on its way to defeat. But recently, those bigots out there who hate gay people have been raising millions of dollars and spending it on TV ad campaigns to pass Prop 8. Now the polls are turning in their favor. 

Sweet is a new lesbian travel company that is putting it's money where it's mouth is.  Anyone who makes a donation to the No on 8 campaign is eligible to win a free cruise from Sweet. Now that is a company whose values I can admire. Here's the details:

So far, Sweet has donated over $13,000 in cash and in-kind contributions to No on 8. To keep that fundraising going, we'll enter everyone who donates at least $50 to No on 8 in a drawing to win a balcony stateroom for two on our Sweet Caribbean Cruise, Nov. 8-15, 2009. All you need to do is forward your donation confirmation to info@discoversweet.com by October 31, 2008. The winner will be notified via email on November 1, 2008.
Please donate now and protect our right to marry. There are a number of worthwhile organizations working together to make sure Proposition 8 does not pass. We don't care which organization you choose. And you don't need to be from California to donate or win.
