Ron Zacchi's Fundraising Page

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!  I am totally hoping to reach my  fundraising goal while preparing to bicycling my heart out for marriage equality!

I set such a high target in honor of those couples I know personally, and those I have yet to meet, who have already felt the impact of this discrimination: 

Like Edie, who lost Thea to MS this past year, and after her loss she was poked and prodded by tax appraisers.  Her grieving process was cut short and even with  suffering a heart attack several weeks after Thea passed the appraisers didnt stop coming to the house.  Edie ended up paying over $800,000 in taxes to keep her home- something no opposite-sex married couple would need to do.

Like Gus and Elmer, together 62 years, who use to march with us every year in the pride parade but now are too old to care for themselves.  When looking for a new home that provides care their choices were limited by the ones that would respect their relationship.  62 years and they still needed to be concerned. 

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
