A message from Donna Dem: TOD-ers meet up in DC!

I don’t know who anyone is yet – we need them to identify themselves!

A message from DonnaDem:

Today it was an honor and a privilege to meet fellow TODers who are not just great supporters of President Obama but are great people as well…

I met someone who was first inspired to volunteer for PBO because of something she read on TOD. She went outside of her comfort zone and turned into a phone banking beast.

I learned that one of our fellow bloggers was a local civil rights pioneer and today we stand on her shoulders.

Then we have the fellow TOD’er (she was a hoot today) who was in da house to witness live when PBO crooned ~~ I’m So in Love with You ~~ at the fundraiser in NY.

Colorado, Ohio and Virginia, three battleground states, were won due in part to the strong work of three TOD’ers who worked their hearts out for a victory on election night. High Fives all around for those remarkable OFA Team Leaders who became their very own community organizers!

Talk about dedication, we had PBO supporters who traveled all the way from Canada to witness the second Inauguration of President Obama.

Thanks to one of our TODers who invited Cousin Henry Healy of Ireland who tried to make it to the meet-up today but was not able to get away from an Irish Embassy event. He actually sent his apologies.

We ate, we laughed, we hugged but most of all we shared our love and admiration for the greatest President evah and in the end three fantastic bloggers walked away with two tickets each to witness the Inauguration tomorrow!

It was a great time had by all!

Thank you soooooooooo much Donna, love you all!!!!! Have the best day EVER tomorrow!

President Obama memorabilia hangs on the walls at the Hyde Park Hair Salon behind barber Ishmael Coye and three-year-old Bryson White shortly before the President took the oath of office to officially start his second term on January 20. The President would get his hair cut at The Hyde Park Hair Salon, which is near his Chicago home, before he was elected to the White House.
