ad campaign
Joe's campaign still needs $12,778 to keep his ads running across Iowa through labor day. Please give what you can any amount will help.

1. I donated last night
Can't say I've ever donated to a political candidate before, but this time it is so important to me. I even became a DU donor so we could start this group. I really believe we can make a difference.

2. I only donated also so I could get into the group too!
Normally I don't do things like that! Pending on how much overtime I get in my check I'll probably donate to Biden's campaign as much as I can this week! I'm feeling really positive lately about our guy!

3. Me too!
A couple of weeks ago something clicked with me and I decided that I needed to DO something, but I didn't know exactly what. Then I found a bunch of great people here who felt like I did. Previously I'd only discussed Joe Biden with my children, who are enthusiastic supporter already.

I couldn't stand coming here anymore and seeing "Joe Biden", "No group", like he was some kind of loser! That just ain't right.

We are so glad that you found us or we found you whichever it was.
It was pretty tough in the beginning if you were a Biden supporter,but it is a lot better now because you and others joined us and I think we are getting more positive leaning folks all the time. I donated this afternoon also. Thanks again.

6. I guess we all found each other at the perfect time
One person responds positively to another and then someone else speaks up, and it snowballs. Hopefully, this will be a trend that takes place all over the country.

I remember talking to my son some months back about Joe Biden. He had great confidence that Biden could win, but I told him that there were a lot of people who despised him and I didn't know why. He was undaunted and I thought he was being naive. Perhaps he was just seeing things from a different perspective. Then I saw Biden's speech to IAFF and I knew it was really, really possible.

7. It would be wonderful
if this really, truly became a "people's campaign", with many people giving small donations and finally having a voice.

8. I'm hoping that he is telling people that on the campaign trail
Telling them that he does not want to take $$ from corporations and that
he needs their help.
