Attention (Democratic Party-supporting) Shoppers:
I WILL MATCH CONTRIBUTIONS TO DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES THROUGH SUNDAY
For 72-hours, from 11pm (US-ET) Thursday evening (27 Sep) until Sunday at 11pm, I am providing a 25% match on all of your donations (up to a maximum of $400) on my ActBlue fundraising page. You pick the candidate(s) of your choice from my list and donate what you can. On Sunday night, I'll connect at 11:00pm (US-EDT) and bump the number donated today by 25%.
So your $40 donation becomes $50, and so on, right on up to an aggregate of
$1,200 $1,600 contributed by the communal "you" over the next 72-hours 28-hours. We started on Thursday night at $4,013 in the pool (and right now, the total is up to $6,304!), so let's see if we can hit $6,013 by Sunday night so we have already reached my maximum $400 match ceiling (yay!).
I began this humble fundraising page a couple of months ago in hopes of making it to $2,500. But through contributions from folks like you, it's now reached beyond $4,000 and climbing. Now, my objective is to reach beyond
$5,000 $7,000 raised for some great Democrats before the Federal Elections Commission reporting deadline at the end of this month, and a stretch goal of reaching $10,000 before Election Day.
With my matching funds tomorrow night, we're guaranteed to at least go beyond $6,700. But now can you help push the total above $7,000 or (dare I say it?) $7,500 before the FEC reporting window closes tomorrow night?
Not only can you donate to President Obama on this page, but you can give to any of
three dozen 39 outstanding Democratic candidates for US Senate and US House seats (detailed list of candidates below the orange croissant).
So far, the response from Kossacks has been both incredibly generous and enthusiastic. This is the last FEC reporting quarter of the election season; let's make it a great one for the President and candidates around the nation so that they can take the fight to their GOP opponents in the final weeks of this campaign!
Thank you in advance for your generous support - now let's help elect some great Democrats!
