Here's his pitch . . .
Dear Person Who Cares Deeply About Others,
Both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney’s campaigns have raffled off dinner with a celebrity to encourage contributions to their campaigns. The Republicans offered dinner with Donald Trump, while the Democrats had dinners with George Clooney, Sarah Jessica Parker, Anna Wintour and Michael Jordan.
Jill Stein has decided to offer an even more exciting experience: Lunch with me. Joel Stein. A Time magazine columnist. Who promises to listen to you ranting on and on about the corrupt American political system without interrupting you. And I’ll even write a column about it in Time magazine. With your name in it. And maybe a shortened quote of one of your rants.
Better still, when you tell your fellow Green friends about it, and you say my name quickly enough, they will think you had lunch with Jill Stein.
I will take you and a guest for the most expensive lunch in Los Angeles you can think of, since I know that you will probably just order the salad and dessert.
Just like for the Obama and Romney raffles, “a donation of $3 or whatever you’re able to give today will automatically enter you for the chance” to have lunch with me.
Good luck. See you at Café Gratitude,
