I just gave to the Elizabeth Warren campaign anyway -- twelve hours before tonight's June 30th deadline. I can't give seven figures, but I could afford three -- a low three. And if you can't afford that, how about two figures? Or five bucks? Just to say that we are willing to do what we can to fight against our American Democracy being bought out from under us by the Adelsons, Kochs, and their Wall Street allies who loathe Elizabeth and support Scott Brown.

There's something else you can do, too -- a friendraiser.  

My wife and I have contacted the Warren campaign and volunteered our house for a friendraiser later in July. My wife has made up invitations that the Warren campaign will send out to folks in our area and that we will also send to friends and neighbors that we think might be willing to help: canvassing, GOTV, or, if they can afford it, donating to the campaign.

But it's NOT a fundraiser! Explicitly not! A campaign representative will be here to give news about the effort, and each person will be asked to say a few words about why they are supporting Elizabeth.  But NO ONE will be asked for money.

I urge any reader in MA who is supporting Elizabeth to consider contacting her campaign and volunteer your house (and maybe some wine and beer) for a similar event.  It feels good to do it.

But that deadline tonight is very important, too. If you can possibly afford even five bucks, please contribute. The donation site is right here.

And if the Warren campaign sends you an invite to our friendraiser, we'll be delighted to meet you!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
