|Another "Kerry-for-president" request for help...
I donated today because as of midnight tonight, a "matching contribution" will cease -- so please donate today -- the letter I received follows:
"We're closing in on one of the most important deadlines of this presidential election year. Tonight at midnight, the Democratic Party will reach its critical August fundraising deadline. Every dollar you contribute today will be matched by a group of dedicated Democrats.
This program was only supposed to match $2 million in contributions -- but these supporters have upped their challenge, and now will match EVERY dollar that you contribute before midnight tonight. Make your contribution today and double your impact:
A year ago, nobody thought that you could beat George Bush's fundraising machine. Yet through your contributions, our campaign was able to outraise George Bush every month from March through July. Now you have a chance to make history again and help the Democratic Party out raise the Republican Party.
Never has it been more important that we stand by John Kerry, John Edwards and other Democrats locked in tough must-win races. Your matched contributions will fund the most comprehensive field program in the history of modern politics and deliver the message that a stronger America begins at home. During this week, the Republican Party will try and put their spin on what amounts to a steady record of Missions Not Accomplished.
Drug companies count their billions while seniors count the number of pills they can afford. Halliburton counts its billions while our troops count the number of soldiers in their unit without body armor. The Saudis count their billions while we count the rising cost of gasoline. The friends of George Bush and Dick Cheney count their tax refunds while the average American counts the days until the next paycheck.
America can do better, and you can help.
Please make a contribution today:
