Dear Maggie Gallagher:
While acknowledging your desire to do something for society, I find unfortunate that your anti-marriage rallies planned for this coming weekend might at least partially contaminate the joy felt by those intending to marry and their loving family members.
Therefore, if you will call off those rallies, I will help you for the remainder of this week to instead organize for Sunday increased assistance to homeless people all across New York State.
Just think what we will be able to achieve by raising awareness of the plight of the homeless this week and then spending this coming Sunday raising money to help them.
Organizational structures already exist for helping the homeless but they are in desperate need of volunteers and additional funding.
Thanking you so kindly in advance for your affirmative response,
(This letter was sent via email to Gallagher on July 19. No response has been received to date.)
