The time to engage Christian conservative voters is now! As we enter the next 29 days leading up to the most important election of our lifetime, it is vital that we reach out to the 30 million registered Christian women voters. I urge you to join Concerned Women for America’s (CWA) She Votes 2012 30-Day Challenge.
To help CWA get out the vote, simply accomplish one small mission each day between now and Election Day for your chance to win one of five complimentary $100 gift cards. Send your name and address to SheVotes2012challenge@cwfa.org and tell us that you are taking the challenge, and we will enter your name into the drawing.
Each task, easily accomplished on your own, contributes to our effort in helping turn out the 30 million Christian conservative women eligible to vote. Complete as many items on the following list as possible for your chance to win!
