Dear Rosemary,

The Every Disabled Child Matters campaign has set a target of 25,000 supporters
by July. With two weeks to go, we need 5,000 more.

Help us meet and beat our target. Please send this message on to your whole
email address book, to your company, your school or to any other email lists
that you are on. Ask everyone you know to sign up at http://www.edcm.org.uk -
and then pass this message on to their own address books.

Please be creative in who you send this too! We want everyone to sign up -
whether they are directly involved with disabled children or not, everyone can
and should be a supporter of EDCM.

The rest of this email explains why this matters.

Campaigns need supporters. Numbers matter - 1.8 million people signed a petition
to the Prime Minister to oppose road pricing.

Since our launch last September, 20,000 people have signed our petition to get
rights and justice for every disabled child. It's a great start, but it's not
enough.

Your support counts. Without our supporters, we would not have been able to
persuade the government to invest £340 million more in disabled children's
services, or make disabled children a priority with a new national target.

With every new supporter we add to the campaign, our chance of making real
change happen increases.

It takes a second to help make every disabled child matter. Sign up to show your
support for the campaign at http://www.edcm.org.uk

Thanks as always for your support, and please do get in touch if you have any
questions.
Best wishes
Pam
