The Support Dean Challenge:
- There are now almost 5,000 members signed up at Meetup.com for Howard Dean. March 31st is the end of the 1st quarter for FEC reporting. As you know, Dean has been getting great press lately but is this press translating to money? How about all of us meetup.com enthusiasts and netroots fans of Dean raise a million dollars for Dean's candidacy by March 31st? Achieving such a goal would help Dean gain traction on all the press he’s been getting. Like it or not, money counts, and as Dean is the best candidate out there, we need to support him now. A million bucks, though? Think it's hard? Here's a formula to ponder: If every one of the 5,000 people who have signed up for Meetup or joined a Yahoo group for Howard Dean took it upon themselves to donate the cost of an average movie ($10.00), and encourage 10 friends to do the same, then we will have raised $500,000 for the campaign. Since Federal campaign laws match every dollar raised under the $250.00 level, that's $1,000,000 right there. I think we can do it. Go over to www.deanforamerica.com and make a ten dollar contribution today. Then forward this message on to 10 people and encourage them to to do the same. Or, print up some of the contribution forms and have your friends fill them out. Just be sure that your friends follow up! This could really work. But only if you do it!
