E mail from ActBlue Update: More States, More Goals, More Action

Dear Friends:

Youre amazing! You've now built over *$7.2 million* in support for
Democratic campaigns through ActBlue, and we're now sending out over
200 checks a week to state and federal candidates across the country.

Your support is giving Democrats across the country the funds and
visibility they need to be competitive this fall! People are starting
to notice (see, for example, this article: )
and Republicans are starting to get very, very nervous.

But November is still months off, and to take back Congress we need
*everyone* doing *everything* they can. To learn how you can maximize
your impact, read on! Below, see how to:

* Use ActBlue to support state candidates in CA and UT.

* Help us expand to AZ, IL, NH, and NM at

* Raise $600 and win Al Gore's Book in our August Challenge -- details

* Join our trainings to become a top-notch fundraiser.

Thanks for all you do to make the Democratic difference!

--The ActBlue Team

****ActBlue in CA & UT****

We are proud to announce that we can now provide ActBlues online
fundraising capabilities to state level candidates in California and

The addition of these two states brings our state total to *10* (we
are also active in Iowa, Indiana, Maine, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South
Dakota, Texas, & Wisconsin) and for the first time allows you to
fundraise online for state-level Democrats in the West!

Do you know of a Democrat running for state office in one of our ten
states? Let them know they can use us to fundraise online, grow an
online fundraising community, and have a web presence! Then, create a
page for them yourself. Your dollars are making an impression
nationally, but can be decisive in state level races. Help us turn
state houses across the country blue by supporting state level
candidates on ActBlue!

****Help us expand to AZ, IL, NH and NM****

Were thrilled that dozens of state candidates in our 10 states
receive funds through us and are growing online fundraising
communities on ActBlue -- but we want to do more.

We need to raise $10,000 more to activate ActBlue in Arizona,
Illinois, New Hampshire, and New Mexico by September (thats right --
just a few weeks from now). Can you help make it happen?

You can help bring ActBlue to AZ, IL, NH, & NM here:

We know it can be done. In Texas, bloggers led by Anna Topia banded
together to raise the thousands of dollars we needed to put ActBlue
Texas over the top! In Utah, state activists, sitting Democratic
legislators, the Utah Democratic party, and scores of current
candidates worked together to raise an impressive $10,000 to activate
ActBlue Utah!

Emulating their grassroots success, can we as a community raise the
$10,000 we need to help state candidates in Arizona, Illinois, New
Hampshire, and New Mexico in time for their September pushes?

We are continually wowed by the force, dedication, and determination of
our ActBlue users. Lets show a whole new crop of state candidates that
we have their backs in September!

****August Challenge****

ActBlue users have already raised over $7 million for Democrats on
hundreds of fundraising pages. We want to reward all of your efforts
and help you do even more!

From August 6th to September 6th, well be monitoring ActBlue
fundraising pages and sending a copy of Al Gores phenomenal book
(companion to the phenomenal movie) _An Inconvenient Truth_ to
everyone who raises $600 from at least 6 different donors!

Already have a fundraising page with some money on it? Great! Get a
few more donors, hit $600, and well send you a book!

Already raise more than $600? Youre already a pro! Start a new page,
find at least 6 donors, and well send you a book!

For details, please visit:

****Become a top-notch fundraiser at our training sessions***

New to fundraising or interested in learning how to reap better
results with ActBlue? ActBlue President Ben Rahn will be hosting a
conference call to share strategies for effective and fun fundraising.
Join us on Tuesday, August 15 at 7:30 pm EDT (4:30 pm PDT)!

Send an email to by 10am EDT on Tuesday for call-in
information and more details! We look forward to talking with you and
to sharing in a blue November!

1. Thanks, Omaha Steve, I really like their site
I just donated on Friday, but that Al Gore win a book contest looks very tempting.
And I do want him to run.
