$6?

OFA

I completely, totally and utterly hate asking you good people to part with your money, but I had a $6 dollar idea 💡

The blog is closing in on 6 million hits:

Seriously, when I started up in October 2009, I would have been more than ecstatic to have six hits, never mind six million.

So, I reckoned we could celebrate this (almost) six million awesomeness by donating $6 to The Obama Diary’s fundraiser for Obama/Biden 2012.

Please be assured, that money does not go to this blog, it goes straight in to the Obama/Biden 2012 fund at OFA where they allow supporters like us set up their own grassroots fundraising campaigns.

I started out with a $1,000 target ….. now we’re up to $8,000. Nuts!

You people are beyond brilliant.

If you can afford to donate $6 towards that target, thank you so much – if you can’t, no problem at all.

This is the link

Thanks everyone, see you tomorrow.

PS

FOUR MORE YEARS! 😉
