Saturday: Come organize, and bring a friend

Volunteers from Illinois Travel Out of State

Next weekend, we'll be 100 days away from Election Day.

We've got a lot of voters to get ready for this election -- and that's part of why First Lady Michelle Obama just launched a new effort called It Takes One.

The idea behind it is pretty simple: One person reaching out to others, bringing in one person at a time, is what will make all the difference. She's challenging us all to bring one new person along every time we take action for this campaign -- whether that's chipping in a few dollars, registering to vote, or showing up at the It Takes One weekend of action.

Folks from Illinois will be making calls or traveling to Iowa for the weekend of action, to register voters and reach out to folks there to talk about President Obama's accomplishments -- alongside that one new person they asked to join them for the day.

Can you go -- and bring someone else along?

Here's all the info:

What: It Takes One weekend of action event

When: Saturday, July 28th
Shifts start at 8:00 pm

RSVP now

There may be some other events near you, too -- so be sure to check them all out.

One hundred days isn't a lot of time. But if you can make it out this Saturday, and your friend can, too, you'll be able to reach twice as many people in Iowa.

Those people you reach are going to bring in others, who'll bring in others -- and it's going to keep getting bigger from there. With all those new people stepping up, the organizing we've got to do over these next 100 days will be many times easier.

That's how this organization has always worked -- and at this special weekend of action, we'll get to see that idea directly in action, in a whole new way.

So RSVP now -- and start thinking about who you're going to bring:
