DU Charity Donation Drive, Day 3: More than $7,800 raised for America's Second Harvest so far!
I just received today's charity fund-drive update. As of 10:30 AM ET Thursday morning, the members of Democratic Underground have donated $7,832 to America's Second Harvest!

There's still time for you to donate! To have your donation included in our total, just click this link:

Limited Time Only: Get a 30% match on your donation to America's Second Harvest!

DU Members Midlodemocrat and Redstone have made challenge donations totalling a maximum of $4,500 -- *IF* the combined total of donations from DU members reaches $15,000. If we reach $15K, it's like your donation is automatically increased by 30% -- or an additional 30 cents for every dollar you give.

7. This is great news and exciting
Remember DUers, Second Harvest says that each dollar equates to 20 lbs of food & groceries they can distribute to hungry people throughout the US!

11. Democrats rule!
I really like the selected charity. I was glad to see that our contributions will help fight hunger in Canada and Puerto Rico, as well as the USA.

Hey, I wonder if the Freepers are having a charity drive. They're probably pitching in to help the NOLA yact club rebuild.

19. This from Skinner's original post about this fund drive:
Thank you for contributing in the first-ever Democratic Underground Year-End Charity Donation Drive. We'll be posting periodic updates about the donation drive until it is over, probably on the last day of the year.

Found here:

http://journals.democraticunderground.com/Skinner/148

So I'd say yes!

23. If My Donation To America's Second Harvest Didn't Look That Big
If my on-line donation to America's Second Harvest didn't look that impressive, it's because I had been making donations all along to one of ASH's affiliated groups, the Capital Area Food Bank of (Austin) Texas. I wrote out another check to CAFBTX on Thursday and mailed it.

If the angry Hellfire-and-brimstone G*d actually exists, I may be Hell-bound, but it won't be because I didn't make at modest efforts to feed the hungry, clothe the needy and house the homeless.
