Dear fellow Edwards supporter,To learn more, click here.
First off, John, Elizabeth and all of us on the team have been deeply moved by the outpouring of good wishes following yesterday's announcement. It's good to know how many of you share John and Elizabeth's commitment to keep this campaign going strong.
And the campaign is going strong. Hundreds of our fellow Edwards enthusiasts have signed up to open their doors for the first ever National John Edwards House Party day. We have parties planned in all 50 states. Now, all we need is you—and your friends.
Next Wednesday, March 28th, join us at a John Edwards House Party near you. We'll be gathering in living rooms coast to coast to watch a powerful new video, talk with John live on the phone, and meet with fellow supporters to discuss the issues and plan what's next.

But here's the key thing: Bring people with you!
This early in the race, I'll bet you can name at least three people off the top of your head who share our values, but are still looking to learn more before they commit to a candidate. Well, there's no better way to show those folks what John Edwards and this campaign are all about—bring friends with you to a local house party. Don't miss this golden opportunity to introduce John Edwards.
Also, if you'd rather bring your friends over to your place, you can still sign up to host your own party by clicking here.
Here's one example of what local hosts are saying about Wednesday night's parties:"We will be watching a video of John and also talking with him on a live conference call. Bring your questions and let's have some fun. You don't have to be a John Edwards supporter to attend. Just bring an open mind and be ready to gather info!"These John Edwards House Parties promise to be a hugely important way to help our campaign. But they are also something more.

We're not only building a network of supporters strong enough to elect John Edwards president—though we are doing that. But we're also building grassroots support for the big goals that make this all so worth doing—things like stopping the war in Iraq, true universal health care, ending poverty and strengthening the middle class, and a bold plan to halt global warming.
By spreading the word about John's bold proposals, we're showing it's truly possible to achieve these great dreams. And once we've done that, voters will never accept anything less. In short, we're raising the bar for America, and we're changing the game.
It all begins by finding, attending, and bringing some friends to a house party Wednesday night. Just click below to find a party near you, sign up to attend, and invite your friends to come along:
Thanks for all that you do,
John Edwards for President
P.S. - A strong showing in our first quarter fundraising is critical to demonstrating our campaign's grassroots strength. The quarter ends next Saturday.
Please, contribute what you can today.
