Barack Obama has decided not to take public financing. Time for DUers to step up to the plate...
In the last week, DUers have donated more than $6,000 to the Obama campaign through the Democratic Underground fundraising page. Can we raise $50,000?

Please click this link before you donate, so we can keep track of our total:

And if you plan on donating multiple times, consider bookmarking that page.

5. I just donated through his website a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to know
how long this would be going on since I would like to donate through DU too. I want to try and donate a little each week. Funds are tight now or else I would make one big donation. Isn't the total we can donate $2,300? The rebate check will help with this. :)

6. This will be going on for a while.
At least until we reach our goal of $50,000, and possibly much longer than that -- until election day or later.

I love that they want lots of little donations and I've got one more pay period (after today) before the 4th! I kinna think they'll make it, but just in case! :rofl:

(Edit: donations, not dollars)

17. Done! I'm a poor college student
who really has next to nothing, so I couldn't give a whole lot. But I gave what I could. Once I get a check at the end of this month (middle of next month) I'll be able to give more.

Thank you Skinner for making this possible. What a great idea!
