I hope you are well and enjoying summer, or perhaps you’re looking forward to Fall’s cooler clime. Here’s what I’m working on until Summer’s end: I’ve taken on the exciting task of raising $3,000 by October 1, 2008 to get our New Yorkers for a Department of Peace website redesigned and online. The current website ( is no longer best suited for NYDOP purposes. By relaunching NYDOP’s website we hope to accomplish the following:
Create an attractive and easy-to-use website, Rebrand our image starting with a new domain to better reflect our status as an organization, Use a new content management system which will be more sustainable for the organization as a whole.

As you know, websites are a primary tool for communication and outreach and without a website that accomplishes the above goals, NYDOP’s ability to effectively communicate our message is limited. By now you’ve likely given careful consideration to active participation in this peace campaign. Your generosity will contribute to a culture of peace by providing NYDOP with a more robust website that better represents our mission and more fully engages our constituents. You can expect:

A more frequently updated website, with the latest NYDOP news & events
A web store which will increase our fundraising capacity
When choosing how much to give, please consider some (or all!) of these strategies:
Donate your age or the age you hope to live to
Donate the combined ages of your children
Donate $1 for every time you think “I wish I could help” and multiply it by 10
Donate your monthly cappuccino allowance
Donate joyfully!!!!

You’ve heard it before and it remains true that every dollar you give helps and all contributions are enormously appreciated. Please send your gift to: New Yorkers for a Department of Peace c/o Joe Allegro 5-18 126th Street, College Point, NY 11356. Or click the link below and make your contribution online. Because NYDOP is a 501(c)4 political lobbying organization, please be aware that contributions are NOT tax exempt.

Thank you for considering our request and we look forward to our continued collaboration with you as we launch our new and improved website.
