Diddy & friends ask for help

With only 31 days left to the election Diddy is pulling out all the stops, the letter below was written by him,Mary J Blige, JayZ and Kevin Liles and was sent out to all their celebrity friends.


Dear Family,

We are in a STATE OF EMERGENCY!!! - we are only 31 days from the MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION OF OUR LIFETIME. We are still at war, banks are closing, and people are losing their jobs and houses every day. It is OUR RESPONSIBILITY to protect our futures. Time is about to run out, and there is still a lot of work to be done. Barack Obama cannot win this election on his own; He needs our help. This election is about US. This election is about our children's futures. We owe it to those who fought and died for our right to vote and our right to be heard.

Barack Obama said it best, "Eight is Enough." No longer will we stand by and follow leadership with no regard for us, and no accountability to us.

We can be the deciding factor in this election. Who are we? We are young America. We are Hip-Hop. We are the culture that has defied statistics and the critics. THIS IS OUT MOMENT OF TRUTH!!!!

We are the leaders of this generation. When we speak, people listen. But the time is NOW for us to use the voices that God blessed us with. We are the ones with the mics, we are the ones on television, we are the ones in the end zone, we are the ones on the court, we are the ones on the radio, and we are the ones in the hearts and minds of young Americans of all colors. WE ARE CHANGE!

Now is the time to do our part to make change a reality and help elect Obama as President. Whether you can speak about it in your radio and television interviews or on stage at your concerts, put it on your website and blogs and push your fans toward it, whether you are head of a street team, or a VJ or DJ. Use your power. If you know 10-20 people, we need to register them to vote and bring them to the polls.

Even if you e-mail every person on your blackberry - do something - DO ALL YOU CAN DO!!!. Make sure that when November 4th comes, we are able to say that we did EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER to make sure that Barack Obama becomes president. We owe this to our children, our parents, our grandparents, and our loved ones. We need you to become a part of Team Obama!!!!!

We are working directly with the campaign and have come up with different ways for you to get involved in this election. We don't need a lot from you, we just need some simple things. Some of you have agreed to do concerts, some of you have agreed to speak in swing states. We all need to continue to DO MORE - video drops, radio interviews, and possibly more appearances as we count down the days to change. This is the most important election in our lifetime. Please use the platform you've been blessed with to urge those who listen to you to make Barack Obama the next President of the United States. Don't forget your personal duty as a citizen. Register to vote, and VOTE TO MAKE HISTORY!!!!!!!


God Bless,
