This is kind of shocking- 106 donations for $5,640 in under 24 hours for Obama from just the commentariat here at Balloon Juice.
I think breaking the ten k mark by the NC/Indiana primary is completely doable. Maybe we should even up it to 15k.?
The key thing is to get new donors, though. New blood into the process is even more important than cash, I think, because if we can get people to make the first step and throw in 25, 50, or 100 bucks, maybe they will be more likely to head down to the local office to volunteer to go door to door, send positive energy, etc.
Regardless, I am still pretty shocked. That is a huge sum of money, and maybe after the election we should have a monthly fund-raiser for worthy charities. Something simple- everyone bring a sandwich to work instead of going out for lunch, and donate the five bucks they would have spent to Helping Hands Monkeys or OxFam or some other charity we can all choose. Something to think about.
Regardless, that is still a huge sum of money for Obama. I am glad we did it.
