Financing the party by tapping the activists

I think there is a fear that asking everyone on the GNC to donate to the Green Party will leave some folks feeling like too much is being asked of them. I think there is a fear that if we get serious about raising money for the Green Party, we will somehow lose a bit of our soul. I think there is a fear that becoming the change we want to see in the world will make us uncomfortable.

Some of these fears are reasonable. If we are going to use new ideas to design Green Communities for our people to live in, we may make a boo-boo as we go along. We will waste taxpayer dollars, but catch ourselves before the media gets wind. We will approve projects we will have to reverse ourselves on when new information comes to us. But knowing that your member of Town Council or School Board or County Council is a Green should tell everyonethat you are an honorable person who can be trusted to perform assigned duties with the passion that comes from working on projects we all can see will bring about real change
