OFA Announces National Healthcare Day

In another sign that the president is seeking to utilize his massive email list to help pass healthcare reform, President Obama's political arm announced that June 27th will be "National Health Care Day of Service."

The announcement comes a few days after Organizing for America created a healthcare action website that enumerates some of Obama's goals for healthcare reform and asked supporters to sign an online petition.

XXXXX --

We're working hard together to help pass real health care reform by the end of the year. We also know that for so many people in our communities, America's broken health care system is a daily crisis -- but there are ways that we can help right now.

So we're organizing a National Health Care Day of Service. On Saturday, June 27th, in thousands of communities across the country, Organizing for America volunteers will roll up our sleeves, raise awareness about the urgent need for reform, and do what we can to improve vital health care services for people in need. Join us!

The individual projects will differ from area to area, depending on what's needed most.

Some groups will organize blood drives to boost local supplies and save lives. Others will volunteer at local clinics that provide free or discount services to those in need.

In some areas, we'll be helping low-income parents get information about how to enroll their children in their state's Children's Health Insurance Program. And some of us will run healthy food drives to promote health awareness and fight hunger in our communities.

You don't need to be an expert to help out. No matter which way you serve, you'll be connecting with like-minded supporters in your area, helping those who might otherwise fall through the cracks of the current system, and at the same time building awareness and support for the comprehensive health care reform our country so desperately needs.

And you'll be doing it all in your own community, helping out those near you who need it the most.

Organizing for America was launched after last year's campaign to pursue the same ultimate goal: improving the lives of our fellow Americans. That's what motivates our work together to help pass comprehensive health care reform, and it's why we're working together on the 27th to serve those in need. I hope you can join in.

Thank you for your service,

Mitch
