Take 5 - Extend the GE Moratorium to 5 years

Take 5 - Extend the GE Moratorium to 5 years

Take 5 has one simple objective - to get Helen Clark and the New Zealand Government to slow down on releasing GE into our environment by extending the GE moratorium for 5 years.

To make Take 5 successful we need at least a million votes. That's where YOU come in. To achieve this we need you to forward this email to at least 5 Kiwis no matter where in the world they live.

If YOU have just received this email, here is how to vote and Take 5.

If you live in New Zealand simply TXT your name and suburb or town to 8642.

If you live outside New Zealand or don't have access to a TXT capable mobile phone then visit www.take5.net.nz and click on baby Gracie to vote.

Remember to vote for the whole family as there is no age restriction. If you are pregnant, you can vote for your unborn too by using 'pregnant' as the first name.

After you have voted please forward this email or the reply TXT to at least 5 Kiwis - preferably your entire whole address book!

New Zealand is a clean green oasis in the Pacific, let's keep it that way. The power is in YOUR hands. Use it or loose it.

Thank you for your support, Greg Menendez and Lisa Er. Take 5 Campaign Organisers.

P.S. If you live in New Zealand we would prefer if you voted by TXTing. Each TXT costs 50c of which some comes back to Take 5 to help advertise the campaign. Take 5 is non-political and non-profit. Any profit left over will be donated to child charities.

Take 5 seconds to TXT, Take 5 minutes to tell 5 friends, Take 5 years on GE to be sure.
