why you should donate to No on 8, even if you don't live in California / GA maybe turning purple?

In California, this year's ballot contains a proposition which would outlaw same-sex marriage. I personally believe all marriage should be extra-legal, but since I have no chance of making that happen, I want it to at least be equal legally. I'm making a small donation ('cause I can't afford a larger one right now) to help keep same-sex marriage legal in CA.

One of my friends wrote an excellent piece on why you should donate to No on 8, even if you don't live in California. Please do check it out and donate if you are moved to -- the deadline is this Friday at midnight Pacific time. I'll quote the part that made me realize just how important this is: "California has 12% of the U.S. population. Massachusetts and Connecticut combined have 3% of the U.S. population. With a total of 15% of the U.S. population living in states where same-sex marriage is legal, we will have a vastly better chance of changing federal marriage laws as well than with only 3%."

In other news Georgia may turn purple this year. This excites me very much because I want Georgia to become a swing state :D I love balance ♥ (not to mention my vote & voice has more power in a swing state XD) And then there's the idea of being purple, haha.
