Dear [insert name - personal emails work best] ,
I just pledged to Move My Money!
In doing so, I chose to make my money work for a banking sector that values ordinary people, small businesses and ethical and social responsibilities - not bulging bonuses, risky speculation, tax avoidance and unethical investments.
I'll be moving my money on [insert date] . I think you should too!

Dear Dear [insert your MP's name] ,
I just joined the Move Your Money campaign and pledged to make my money work to support a local, ethical and socially useful alternative to the mainstream banking sector. By moving my money, I am opting out of a system that will:
Gamble my savings on risky investments, safe in the knowledge they are being underwritten by the taxpayer
Invest in unethical companies and unsavoury regimes
Keep starving small business of credit
Pay their banker's bulging and inequitable bonuses
Avoid paying the tax that could help fix our deficit
And I'm supporting the alternative - a banking system that works for ordinary people, communities and society.
As my representative, please show your support for this campaign by visiting www.moveyourmoney.org.uk and pledging too. I look forwarding to hearing from you on this matter.
