You can donate to Obama/Biden 2012 through Donna Dem’s fundraiser here
Every dollar counts – even a $3 donation would be great ;-)
Endless love to Tigerfists88 on Twitter – I asked him to promote Donna Dem’s fundraising drive, and he did. Legend.

Hey Donna Dem – you’re amazing:
I donated this morning – directly to the campagin and to our friend and winner Donna!
I will make 2 more donations today. This is so much fun to watch. Go Donna!!!!!
I already donated! And I will be tweeting reminders throughout today to remind people that 2012 is too crucial. Thanks Chips. :)
Go Donna!!! You will have important things to discuss with the President when you speak with him.
Done. Wish I could donate more but I gotta spread the money love in response to President Obama’s email and to the DCCC (yeah I’m still pissed at some Dems but the alternative is horrendous).
Good luck, Donna!
Someone sent out a link yesterday quoting the Chicago staff and reasons why they’re fighting so hard for President Obama’s re-election. One of the quotes was “Because the alternative is not an alternative”.
“…Because the alternative is not an alternative.”
Donated, again, I hope “WE” win! :lol:
YES.WE.CAN, Again…Obama/Biden 2012!
PRESS ON! ;)
I want to share something with you all….
I have received an extraordinary amount of donations primarily from this site. In fact over 300 of the donations I have received this month have come from TOD followers. I send out “thank yous” when you make your initial donation and I have gotten over a hundred responses in the last couple of weeks.
I want those of you who participate and share information on this site to know that there are hundreds of people who read what we share here everyday. They are the silent lurkers who know us all by our posts and check into this site everyday but never say a word. They have shared with me in those messages about how we lift them up and motivate them to keep “Pressing On”. Some of their notes of inspiration brought me to tears. You never know the impact that your words and links and commentary can have on people until you encounter them in a simple message of support.
I just want you all to know that you along with Chips are making a tremendous difference to so many O’supporters in the face of so much negativism. So keep informing, keep sharing and most of all keep lifting us all up to continue the fight because our President is worth whatever labor we endure to guarantee his success.
No matter the outcome tonight I feel like a winner already just because of the overwhelming show of support I have experienced here in raising money for our President.
Thank you all so much! You too lurkers
That’s spectacularly lovely Donna, you have no idea how much I want you to top those leaderboards, no one deserves it more. You’re an inspiration. ;-)
Lovely note! Go Donna Go! :mrgreen:
Virtual Hugs to Donna and all who come here.
How wonderful!! Thanks for sharing your responses. It really helps to know we have lots of company.
Such lovely words Donna! We are all pulling for you!
WE ARE TOD TEAM!
Donna, you are a winner! Your can do spirit is what this President needs. Our host, Chips, who works so hard to keep us informed and focused, is also a winner. She is one of my heroes. I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I feel for finding this site that strongly supports a President that I greatly admire and respect. I hopeDonna dem won the contest!
I just made another 2 donations of 5.00 each per your request for small but more donations. I can’t do anymore right now, but I hope you will win. Please tell the President when you meet him that we have his back, Thanks.
Donna–You’re the best and have been such an inspiration to us. I went to a Democratic dinner tonight and told everyone at my table how terrific you were to get so much support for your challenge and how exciting it’s been to be part of it. The clock is ticking down now, almost time for the virtual champagne.
You have to know that with ALL OUR HEARTS, we are pulling for you! What a beautiful, heartfelt message this is…it goes directly to the spirit that Chips has enabled here at TOD…the family that we share, for the sole purpose of re electing this most amazing man to lead our great country again. Thank you so much for sharing that with us…and now, I’ll go donate some more:)
To celebrate Donna…and remind everyone of what and who we’re fighting for….(thank you, 3Chics!)
http://3chicspolitico.com/obama-love/barack-obama-swagger/ DON’T MISS THIS!
Good luck, Donna!!! You are always a hero and winner to us!
Thanks, snoop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve missed you:)
As always, desertflower, you’re very welcomed!
Same here… :smile:
As you know, family, life, and work “get in the way.”
And, I’m glad to “hear” your hubby has found a job.
Life is treatin’ you and yours, better?
It’s about time! :Virtual Hug:
I just sent you another donation…my fingers and toes are crossed for you!
Donna, you are a winner regardless of the outcome, but you have got this hands down sis. I donated again today. Not only is it important to help you, it is important to help the President. I read something on “First Read” (like I really believe Chuckie) but he wrote that Romney and Obama’s donations for third quarter will be lower than second quarter. Why? I have no idea but I so want us to make a big showing this quarter and you getting to speak with him is the frosting on the cake!
For Romney, I just think the field is getting bigger. For PBO, he had to cancel some big time fundraisers due to the fake debt ceiling crisis. I’m sure that was all part of the GOP plan.
If ours are down, that will be a bummer, but I do recall reading that the third quarter is typically the most challenging due to the distractions of Summer. Plus it’s been such an economically challenging quarter that I bet many many of us are either still waiting or, like me, having to contribute less than usual. And none of the big Wall Street doners who supported Obama in 2008 are giving, but are meeting with Romney instead.He helped save their butts but they will not be there for him this round. I think the campaign is surprised; many of us out here are not.
Okey dokey Donna, I just made two different donations to your page, I’m really hoping that you win, and most of all i want to commend you on your committed hard work. I also donated on yesterday, but to VP Joe Biden’s request.
Just chipped in some bux! :)
Sometimes I just don’t know who to donate to, between PBO, FLOTUS, Dccc, DNC, they all are requesting donations.
There’s great stuff at the Obama store which counts as a contribution also. I got the new sweatshirt so I can campaign when I walk in the neighborhood—–and elsewhere. Also like the gray v neck t shirt and the car magnet and the buttons etc. etc. etc.
I ordered the polo shirt & two magnets. I am going to order the sweatshirt when I get back from DC later next month.
I am going for the cat and dog collars. I think my St. Bernard may lose out though cause I don’t think it comes in extra extra large.
No XXL dog collars? No fair! I have a Great Dane that would look WONDERFUL in an OBAMA collar!:) Have to check that out…
I get bumper stickers and magnets to give out to people for visibility. Always love to see more cars with their 2012 gear. Get people thinking, inspired sooner rather than later.
Boehner Pushes For Energy Department Loan For Home District Company Amidst Solyndra Scandal
Not House Speaker John Boehner (R), who on Friday called for the Obama administration to send some of that federal cash back to a company in HIS Ohio district.
Boehner’s office wants the Energy Department to approve USEC, Inc.’s application for a loan to construct a uranium enrichment plant for the American Centrifuge Project. They say that USEC’s proposal is solid and would “bring thousands of good-paying, long-term jobs,” which they said stood “in stark contrast to the ‘stimulus’-centric Solyndra saga.”
“Hundreds of Southern Ohio workers stand to lose their jobs if the Obama Administration reneges on the president’s promise to support an energy project in the small town of Piketon, OH,” Boehner aide Michael Ricci wrote in a blog post.
“Since the president made his promise, USEC has endured review after review and taken the necessary steps to conserve cash and protect jobs, but the Department of Energy has yet to act,” Ricci said. “This is despite the fact that the company has gone the extra mile to secure additional private investment to reduce taxpayer exposure. Now the Piketon project is at risk of being shut down, putting hundreds of jobs in limbo.”
Thought this was an interesting tidbit. The head of the Chgo tea party, who is the main organizer for the national convention in Schaumburg, Il. this weekend (Chgo burb), who has received accolades from all over the place for being this really great guy, a family man, a family values man, was arrested last summer for soliciting a prostitute. And he forgot about his own failings as he took to twitter after his own arrest to condemn Jesse Jackson Jr. for his long ago indiscretions. The hypocrisy in the tea party seems to be the one connecting thread—–I’m thinking of tea party darling Joe Walsh too whose family values included ignoring his responsibility to his children in his failure to pay child support.
Spectacular!!! And he sent those tweets to JJ Jr two months after his own arrest?! Oh, these people…….
An informative graphic about Al Qaeda operatives eliminated by this administration:
Thank you for that, meta. I’ve been wondering if the bin Laden cohort – think he may have been a doctor? who was shown years ago in a video where he was inside a jail with others, and he kept hollering something like “We are Muslims” – is still around. Sorry I don’t have a better description, but would anybody know?
Just realized his name is Ayman Al Zawahiri.
Al Zawahiri is still alive.
Thanks – once I found his name, I saw he was still around. But probably not for long.
Alive, but bet he has trouble sleeping soundly at night…he should. He’s next.
Any news on the number of donors and the raised this quarter ? Is there a website for it like last quarter did ?
The official date for reporting the previous quarter’s results is October 15th, so it’ll be a couple of weeks before we know the outcome.
I think we’re shooting for $50 million and a million donors.
Thanks meta. If you remember, last quarter, they had a website towards the end where we could track the no. of donors and the amount (both of which they kept pushing higher and higher). Was wondering if they had such a tracking site this quarter ?
I haven’t seen anything like that this quarter. Maybe others will clue us in.
I just made my contribution (tardy for the party)! It was my intention to support you sooner but things have been hectic. I really hope you win this challenge. I would have given more but I’m trying to beef up my own goal. I’m definitely small time compared to you :). Anyway keep up the good work!
Thank you so much Angela!
Mitt Romney is desperately trying to be like President Obama – Oh he wishes. Now he’s trying to see if he can come close to PBO with the number of Twitter followers. He tweeted this on Sept 23rd:
// “Thanks everyone for helping me get to 100k followers. RT and let’s double it in the next 60 days #Mitt2012
23 Sep via web” //
LOL. 10mil vs 0.1 mil. what an ass(hole).
Hee hee. Totally.
Swagger jacking as usual….#fail.
“Swagger jacking” really fits! #FAIL
Hahahaha. “Swagger Jacking” really is an apt description for what Romney is desperately trying and FAILING to do.
No one does swagger like our President…See the video I posted above…It’s delicious:)
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If President Obama is so terrible, why is Mitt trying so hard to emulate him??
President Obama is a charismatic, brilliant and effective leader. He leads and others follow. President Obama is consistent and solid in his convictions. Mitt Romeny is an enigma and a phony. I have no idea what he stands for.
I just got home and see that #2 got another 80 donations since 10:00 this morning. All in $3.00 amounts….
You all have been fabulous! We have about an hour and a half to go!!!
Praying for you! You deserve this so much.
Just did my (small) bit for you Donna, press on!
Love you Chips!!!
Not half as much as I love you, you superstar!
When this (3rd quarter) is over we need to talk, your fundraising expertise is magnificent – I want your advice on how we can keep this going, there are so many brilliant people out there willing to help. I officially appoint you our Fundraising Commander in Chief – talk soon. You’re amazing. ;-)
Great idea, Chips!!! We love our President AND our Donna!
Chips you are reading my mind. I will gladly accept that task. It’s one of the most high impact events that a person can do to support the President’s re-election.
Well, now my love for you has just quadrupled. Look what you’ve started?
When you get a chance, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know how you think we should do this. I’d be more than thrilled to just carry on using your OFA fundraising page, but tell me what you think is best. You’re teaching us how to press on, and it feels great. ;-)
We’re gonna get everyone involved and have some fun doing it. I’ll send you a message early next week.
donna how about 50.00 from me and my lovely wife ? so here we go , we will ax for this president again.
Fantastic Mel. Thank You!!
You people are amaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing – love ya all!!!
As Donna surges to victory in the Obama Donation I want to make one final reminder
Please email me a list of the calls, tweets, email forms, conversations, or volunteer hours you have spent this week. I will post pictures of the treats, so far refrigerator magnets and a clear sticky sign you can put in your back window that says Press On.
I am looking for places I could order the materials to make a pin we could wear on sweatshirts or coats, if anyone knows of a source – let me know.
I am excited to read the emails tomorrow and send out the Press On items.
I just e-mailed you whatisworking! That was sooooo much fun! Thank you for thinking of it!
Ooops I forgot to tell you. I used my real e-mail address. It will not say Frenchie08, but I think you will know it is me, because I said sooooo much fun in my e-mail as well.
Another small donation for you Donna. You deserve it. I am trying to stay awake to celebrate with you but wheeew… I am dozing. I won’t say Good Luck but Congrats because no matter what you are a winner. I’m super excited for you.
Made one too to Donna and again to Obama/Biden 2012. Donna, we all are rooting for you and as you stated up thread, no matter how things go, you already are a winner in our hearts and minds. Wish you the best.
Very much appreciated!

Funny my post didnt show up. But I also made my small contribution to you Donna.
Thank you Asher
Just made a donation Donna. I’m pulling for you.
Wow! thanks terim.
Truly…THIS NEEDS TO GO VIRAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
http://www.thenation.com/article/163672/charles-koch-friedrich-hayek-use-social-security The hypocricy and betrayal of the load of goods these libertarian nutjobs have sold as a bill of goods to America is nothing short of stunning!
When and how will we know the results? BEST OF LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m not sure. I thought that OFA would have given us updates all day today but they haven’t. Thanks so much gcwp1. Hopefully we will know something by early tomorrow morning.
GOOOOO DONNA!!!! WOW…you almost over $9,000…I am all over Tweeter spreading the word….
LAST CALL TO DONATE >>>>PLEASE GO THE FOLLOWING LINK DONATE!!!! 4 MORE FOR 44 https://donate.barackobama.com/page/outreach/view/2012/donnanoshock3
Just donated to PBO again before going to bed, I donated to Donna this morning. Good luck to you Donna my dear, you are truly amazing. Goodnight my TOD family.
Oh no I didn’t know you can donate to Donna more than once in a day, well i will donate some more now I hope it’s not too late, but I will try anyway. Good luck again Donna, crossing my fingers for ya.
When will we know????? I’m on west coast time…and it’s 8:39pm for me…..that means only 21 more minutes!
politico speculates 55 mil combined for party and president. mittens at 11-13 mil as per boston globe.
Interesting…we shall see.
Donna I’m unemployed, but I chipped in $5.00. It’s not much, but every lil bit counts and I want you to get that phone call
That $5 means the world in a people-powered campaign. Those donations really add up.
Just donated twice more; but will do one more since Chips posted my favorite Hey!
:lol: Love ya Taiping!
Girl you donated your little heart out :)
Thank you so much taiping1
I don’t want to wake up in November 2012 wishing I had done more. Failure is not an option! Once I max out for PBO I’ll start on Elizabeth Warren, DCCC, DSCC, DNC, nod monthly OFA vote for change trips to Nevada since the Bay Area us so blue. We all must keep doing all we can together. Thanks to you for your dedication, Chipsticks for her overall awesomeness in creating, sustaining, mothering, and inspiring this great community, and all who come here. What I love about our president is that he calls on us to work together in perfecting the American dream the only way it can be realized, through loving community. Never about fear, hate, lies, or venom but above love, empathy, reciprocity. Even more than 2008 it is a fight to define our future, almost apocalyptic in its implications.
Going back to BLAST TWEETER…………….TICK TOCK….LAST MINUTE TO DONATE C’MON WE CAN DO IT….
Oh that’s right! It’s 10:55 here but it’s 11:55 out east. Holy Mackeral! I can’t stand it!! aaaah. :-0
Me either! I’m dying to know if she won!
Yeah Alice, what’s the story with the midnight deadline? Is it midnight ET, or midnight anywhere in the U.S.??
Midnight PST. We’re pushing to $10K!
Okay now I’m confused. I thought the deadline was midnight EST????
For you it is but now for all of us on the west coast. You need to up your challenge: soon to be $9.5K!
Really? Excellent! I had no clue, I thought it might have been a midnight EST deadline?
Hopefully not – donate west coasters, press on!
Should have done it earlier but I just made my contribution. Boy, it took a long time – maybe my computer but I think the OFA server is probably bogged down.
Tomorrow we’ll be doing “I’m In” cards at a local street festival for 4 hours – I’m looking forward to it.
Hi Elly where is your I’M In event. I’ll be at one in Riverdale Md at the Riverdale Community Day.
At Taste of Bethesda
Chips you are too much :) You made it right at midnight!!!
My thermometer has passed $9,000.00
YOU ALL ARE AWESOME!!!
We did our best and now we will have to wait on the results.
Please don’t tell me my second donation was past midnight :cry:
If it was, I AM AN IDIOT WHO SHOULD PAY CLOSER ATTENTION TO THE CLOCK :oops:
It hit my email at exactly 12:00 midnight so that would mean you did it about a minute before that. Hopefully it made it.
Pheeeeeeeeeeeew – I hope. I’m an idiot!
daymn. hot, hot, hot. Congrats donna. You’re hawt.
Note to Donna – I know this doesn’t need posting, but PLEASE let us know here, whenever you know!
Thanks, Chips, for helping us help Donna and PBO!
