Dear Debbie,

Only a few hours until your ONE house party and the Global Day of Action! Thank you for standing up against poverty with the ONE Campaign!


Please see below the checklist of preparations for your party. At the end of the email, you will find instructions for your sneak preview viewing of the ONE Vote TV Spot. You will need a PC (it will not work on a Apple) and you must be using Windows XP and Internet Explorer. You will only be able to view the video five times.



The ONE House Party Checklist:

Before the Party:

Invite your friends and family! Let everyone know where to be and when.

Go to the House Party Resource Center and print out and make copies of the ONE fact sheets, the ONE Voter Pledge, and the information on calling candidates’ offices.

Look-up information to call your candidates, found also at the House Party Resource Center.



Call all your candidates’ offices in advance of your party and ask each for:

* A spokesperson to speak at your house party or to be available by phone
* A statement on his or her position on global poverty and HIV/AIDS
* If all else fails, politely let each campaign know that voters will be calling the office on Sunday to learn more about the candidate’s position.



During the Party:

Use the ONE fact sheets and discuss extreme poverty, global AIDS and voting.

Watch a sneak preview of ONE Vote TV Spot (See instructions at the end of this email.)

Call your candidates’ offices.

Stand-Up Against Poverty (literally.)

Sign the ONE Voter Pledge.

Take a picture or video that you can send to us.



After the Party:

Be counted! Go to our after party review form and let us know information such as: how many people stood up against poverty at your party, how many people signed the ONE Voter Pledge, and how your candidates’ offices responded to your questions.



Keep spreading the word and fighting poverty. Use the "What’s Next?" sheet from the House Party Kit for suggestions.



Continue to follow-up with candidates’ offices with calls and emails. Request that they post their plans to fight global poverty on their websites.



If you have any questions, please check out our House Party Toolkit found at the House Party Resource Center the or send us an email at giveyourtime@data.org

We had a TREMENDOUS time yesterday at the Austin AIDS Walk!

We had a smaller group of volunteers than last year (probably because of the rain in our area) but we were as successful as last year in signing people up on ONE Voter pledge sheets and ONE petitions.


In total, we signed up nearly 300 people to ONE in the span of less than two hours.


That was an AWESOME response from the people of Austin to the movement to make poverty history.


Our sign ups also doubled as participants in the international STAND UP activities around the world.



Tomorrow, on the campus of the University of Texas we will be hosting a ONE booth for International Whiteband Day on the main campus mall.


And then, at 7:00 pm tomorrow night, we will gather in the main campus mall area and have a short program on extreme poverty and what we can do to end it.

After that, we will gather in a circle and make a white band of light with our flashlights to end our observance of the third International Whiteband Day.


If you're in the area, please feel free to join us.

After my working behind the scenes for two months to make sure it became a reality,

Austin TX was declared a "City of ONE" for the month of October 2006!


This became a reality on 10 October 2006.


Austin is now in a select group of cities around the USA to have recognized ONE and the volunteers which make it as effective as possible for the world's poorest people.






I just wanted y'all to know. I feel very good about this.


It looks beautiful in its frame.
