More LOVE From Wendy's Daughters Amber and Dru

These are some emails I received from Wendy's daughters concerning their mother. You can tell how much they Love their mother. I just thought I'd share these with you!





May 2012

Itís our Momís birthday on Wednesday, and we were having some serious trouble deciding on the perfect gift for her. As we were arguingÖerÖdiscussing this problem, we realized that the best present ever would be to give her birthday wishes from all her friends and supporters.

For every $10 you contribute to our Momís re-election campaign between now and Wednesday, we will add one candle to her cake. Please click here and contribute today to send her a happy birthday wish. We need your help filling her birthday cake with as many candles as we can.

When we were kids, birthdays were a special and exciting time in our home. Now that we are the grown-ups (sort ofÖ), it is our turn to show Mom how special she is by giving her all of your birthday greetings.

Please click here and contribute to help us cover her birthday cake with candles. Thanks so much for supporting our Mom!

Best,

Amber & Dru

P.S. The cake on order is really big, so we need your help to fill it up with candles Ė please give today!

We are floored by how much love and support we have received for our Mom over the past two days. Thanks to the generosity of friends like you, we had to get an even bigger cake for Momís birthday celebration tonight.

We are up to 390 candles for her cake so far. But, since the party isnít until tonight, there is still time to send your birthday wishes and help us add even more.

For every $10 you contribute right now, we will add another candle. Please click here to give and show our Mom some birthday love.

Itís going to be a great celebration this evening, and you will be there as we share with our Mom all of your amazing birthday wishes.

Please give generously to help us wish our Mom a very Happy Birthday today!

Itís not every day that you turn 50. We are so proud of what our mom has accomplished in her first 50 years and canít wait to see whatís in store for her in the next 50. Thank you for helping our family mark this milestone. It means a lot to us!

Some of you have known my mom for a while. Some of you have just gotten to know her. As her daughter, I hope everyone gets to know my mom as I do -- a tough fighter who is not afraid to take on those who abuse political power.

I watched my mother stand for 13 straight hours, fighting for the families of Texas. I couldn't have been more proud. But I wasn't surprised -- this isn't the first time she's gone up against one of Governor Perry's outrageous plans.

When the Texas legislature cut $5 billion in public education funding, hurting Texas's children and families, my mom took a stand.

My mom knows I will always stand beside her. And she needs to know you're with her, too.

My mom is building up a grassroots coalition -- and she needs 10,000 contributors to join her. Can you chip in $5 or more?


My mother is a real fighter. She always has been. And this filibuster just proved that when push comes to shove, she stands strong.

Mom got the fight against Governor Perry's anti-women bill started. Now we all need to stand with her. Become one of the 10,000 contributors to help build her grassroots coalition. Pitch in a few dollars right now.

This fight doesn't just belong to my mom. It's up to each and every one of us to pitch in and help.

Thank you!

Amber Davis




Wendy Davis Response Email On Her Character Being Attacked

As our campaign has gained momentum, our opponents have gotten more and more desperate. But now theyíve stooped to a new low by attacking my family, my education, and my personal story Ė playing politics with the journey that has been my life.

Mine is a story about a teenage single mother who struggled to keep her young family afloat. Itís a story about a young woman who was given a precious opportunity to work her way up in the world. Itís a story about resiliency, and sacrifice, and perseverance.

And youíre damn right itís a true story.

Throughout this campaign, Iíve shared that story Ė not because itís unique, but because it isnít.

The story of my life is also the story of millions of single mothers who feel alone in the world, millions of young dreamers searching for their chance to become something more than what they were born into, millions of families all across Texas who would sacrifice everything to give their children a better future.

Itís those stories Ė your stories Ė that drive my campaign. But Greg Abbott and his allies donít want to hear them. They donít have anything to offer Texans who find themselves in the same difficult situation I was in when I was young. They would slam the doors I walked through and pull up the ladders I was lucky to be able to climb.

And now, instead of offering real ideas to improve your life, theyíre attacking mine.

It wonít work. The only thing Greg Abbott and his allies have proved with these desperate attacks is that they donít understand what it means to live a life like mine Ė a life like that of so many people all across our state.

They donít know me Ė and, whatís more important, they donít know you.

Iím not surprised that the Abbott campaign would resort to attacking the story of a single mother who worked hard to get ahead.

And Iím not afraid of their false attacks Ė I developed thick skin long before anyone knew my name.

What I am is deeply proud of the life Iíve built and the daughters Iíve raised Ė and deeply grateful to the many, many people who have shared their stories and offered their support as Iíve traveled our state.

No false attack can take away my story. And no sleazy political trick will stop me from giving voice to yours.

Your stories are why Iím running for Governor. And together, I know weíll make sure that the Texas we leave to our children is a place where every young mother can build a better life for her child. . . where every family can work their way up the economic ladder. . . where every Texan can achieve their dreams and live out their own success story.

Together, weíll break through these attacks, win this election, and make Texas even greater.

Wendy
