100 Days, 100 Donors, 100 Dollars

You are the beating heart and lifeblood of my campaign. And with just 100 days left until Edmonton’s municipal election, I need you to continue building campaign momentum.

Starting today, I ask 100 of you to step up with a $100 donation to my Ward 5 election campaign. Tell me about yourself and why you decided to support me so that I can share your story with others. My supporters come from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and geography. I would love your giving to inspire others who may be motivated by the stories they read. Or feel free to donate anonymously if that works better for you!

Over the next 100 days, I will be profiling 100 donors on my webpage and social media. I will also be documenting this fundraising journey, and asking members of the public to be my daily donors. Stay tuned for these and other exciting Miranda campaign posts.

I want to be Edmonton’s next Ward 5 City Councillor to help all of you have a better, more vibrant, and more inclusive Edmonton  –  and I need your help. If you have already given, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please consider donating again to this initiative or encouraging other supporters to donate via the hashtag #100DaysDonorsDollars.
