We Did It!
As of 5:50 pm we completed BJ Angel match #8 and we have raised $27, 668 for the Native vote in Wisconsin! ($1,000 in a paper check)
I will leave the thermometer up until morning so everyone can see that we reached our goal! Blew past it, in fact.
As I type this, the thermometer says $24,835. Just $165 more is needed to get the thermometer to $25,000! The train is indeed speeding toward the station.
But Gravenstone, aka Balloon Juice Angel #8, has match money left, so if you still have money to chip in, we have some new rules for the home stretch!
Balloon Juice Angel #8 will match donations of any amount until the $
583 $228 $203 $158 $133 $83 $68 of his remaining match money has been met. The only detail is that you need to tell us your donation amount in the comments.
FOUR DIRECTIONS – WI
Like a train speeding toward it’s destination, Balloon Juice has proven in the past couple of years to be an unstoppable force in our fundraising efforts to turn back the tide in this country, as we fight for ourselves, for our country, for our loved ones, fight to give help give voice to people who many others want to have no voice at all.
Whether you had just one dollar to contribute, or a whole lot more dollars than that, whether you posted the thermometer link in your twitter feed, whether you encouraged this effort in your comments… we are not giving up, we are fighting for the world we want to have, and we are doing it in our own unique way.
Along those lines, here’s a great train song sung by 3 very different voices. I like to think that Steve Goodman, Arlo Guthrie, Pete Seeger and others would be proud of our efforts.
Thank you to everyone who has joined in this effort to help give a voice to Native people. In Georgia. In Arizona. In Wisconsin.
Now let’s spend the last $583 of Gravenstone’s match, shall we?
