Several of us in Portland, Oregon were sitting around over a glass of wine and whining about McCain/Palin and the direction our country is taking. In the tradition of Oregon's NIKE, we decided to stop whining and just DO something…..to ask our friends and their friends, to help us raise $500,000 for Obama/Biden by October 15. That's right. $500,000! Friends…..we have a country to save for ourselves, for our kids.
If we can get 500 women from each of the 50 states of the union (and ex-pats living abroad) to send $20 into the campaign, we can raise that much. We can show that John McCain/Sarah Palin do not represent our concerns. We've got one month to do it. And we can and will do it. But not without you!. WILL YOU HELP?
Here's how to help NOW (don't put it off!)
1.Go to: http://my.barackobama.com/page/outreach/view/main/awfo and donate what you can. Do it NOW! This site is dedicated to the Another Woman For Obama campaign.
Copy this email (rather than forward it) and send it to all YOUR friends, with a personal note from YOU. Ask your husband/partner to support you by including his/her friends as well. Never underestimate the power of women who are "mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore"! BE THE CHANGE. …..and thanks for your outrage and action!
You can track our progress toward our goal by using the same website.
