How can I send emails to multiple members of a household?

One email address per constituent

If multiple constituents you want to email to exist within the same constituents record in your Little Green Light account, it is not possible to send email to more than the primary constituent in the record (the one whose name is in the "First name" and "Last name" fields). This is because there is a one-to-one relationship between constituents and Mailchimp or Constant Contact subscribers; only one email address per constituent can be subscribed at a time

Sending email to multiple members of a household

In cases where you want to be able to send an email to multiple members of the household, you can create a secondary record containing just the spouse/partner email address. Tying this record to the main household record via a relationship that you set up between the two records allows you to track the connection between them for future reference. You can add as many secondary related records as you have household members you want to send email to.

The quickest way to create the secondary record is to clone the primary one. You can do this by accessing the record in LGL, clicking the More actions button in the upper right area of the page, cloning the constituent record, and then updating the cloned record with the spouse's name and email address. Now you can send email to that member of the household as well as to the primary contact.

NOTE: We recommend keeping the primary constituent marked as having a contact type of “Primary” for the purposes of sending mailings, when you don’t want any household to receive more than one mailing.
