Wednesday’s Day of Action to Save the Internet has grown beyond our wildest
> dreams. We need your help to make sure we’re ready!
> We’re now just two days away from our massive Day of Action to Save the
> Internet, and it’s suddenly grown to exceed even our lofty expectations.
> Snapchat, Google, Facebook, and Spotify have announced plans to join in
> the effort, encouraging their tens of millions of users to contact the FCC.
> Pro-net neutrality senators are even warning the FCC to beef up their
> website’s capacity to handle the flood of traffic without crashing.
> *This is all great news--but as the day of action has grown, so have our
> expenses. *
> For instance, with so many big websites joining in, our online tool to
> help people call Congress could see double or even triple the number of
> calls we’d budgeted for. Our call tool makes calling super easy (which
> means more calls and impact!) but connecting 1 million calls could cost us
> $40,000. We’re also building a tool to help people record and upload video
> messages to the FCC, and that has some big bandwidth costs.
> *Will you chip in to help cover the costs of the fast-growing Day of
> Action to Save the Internet?
> We know that FCC Chair and former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai is hell-bent on
> gutting net neutrality. But with new polling showing that the vast majority
> of Republican and Democratic voters support the free and open internet,
> members Congress are really feeling the heat.
> Even before Pai formally announced the net neutrality repeal, many
> political experts were saying that Republicans could lose control of
> Congress. If the Trump administration moves forward with yet another hugely
> unpopular proposal, then vulnerable Republicans in purple districts know
> that they will pay the price in next year’s election.
> *That’s why we can still save net neutrality. *Even if FCC Chairman Ajit
> Pai is committed to helping his friends and former bosses in the
> telecommunications industry, Congress can stop him.
> When we announced the July 12 day of action, our goal was to make it the
> biggest in history. But now with Facebook, Google, and so many other huge
> websites joining in, it could be bigger than even we’d imagined.
> *We’re counting on you to make sure we have the funds to handle the flood
> of traffic and actions we’re expecting. Your donation now lets us have the
> biggest possible impact on Wednesday.*
> *Will you chip in to help cover the costs of the Day of Action to Save
> the Internet, now that it’s bigger than we ever imagined?
