I've committed to raise $1000 for Barack Obama's campaign. I figure if I find 20 Obama-supporting friends who can each give $50 (or 50 who could each give $20, etc.) that would get us there. I don't have the funds to just whip out my checkbook and write a single $2300 check (the federal limit for a candidate in an election). But by pooling the resources of myself and others like me, we can collectively feel like one fat cat supporting our candidate. If I could raise $2300 that would be amazing, but I think $1000 is realistic for now, maybe with another cycle in the fall if I meet with success now... any readers out there, please feel free to participate.
