Good afternoon, Advocate,

Our staff and leadership want to thank you (and your organization, if you're affiliated with one of our 262 endorsing organizations) for your support of Advocates for Ohio's Future this year and wish you happy holidays!

As we gear up for the mid-biennium budget early next year, Advocates for Ohio's Future and our partners are collecting stories highlighting the ways that human needs programs strengthen families and communities. We need to collect stories by the end of January to have an impact on budget priorities!

In this holiday season, rather than making a donation to Advocates for Ohio's Future, will you take five minutes to share your story?

How has a food pantry, a homeless shelter, a long-term care program, a public service agency, or a behavioral health provider made a difference in your community? How has child care, PASSPORT, Medicaid, Help Me Grow, TANF, or Food Stamps met your needs or the needs of families in your community?

If you work for a human needs organization, you probably already tell your story to funders; we hope you tell it to your elected officials, too. Today, will you share your story with OhioSPEAKS? Click here to submit a written story or a short video clip. If you've already developed a video or have access to consumer stories, please share them with OhioSPEAKS!

Thank you for your work and your support.

Forward this email to others in your network to give them the opportunity to get involved and share their story.

Will Petrik, Outreach Director

Scott Britton, Coordinator
