Today I donated $80 to the Barack Obama campaign and $20 to MoveOn.org. I can't donate thousands of dollars like some people (I'm always amazed at comments on AMERICAblog about people donating that much), but I figured EVERYONE should contribute what they can, even if its $10 to $20. It makes a difference and adds up.

If you've been reading news online, you'd know that the Obama campaign needs donations, in part because of the way its rejected using public financing. The campaign relies on donations from people like us.

From The New York Times: "After months of record-breaking fund-raising, a new sense of urgency in Senator Barack Obama’s fund-raising team is palpable as the full weight of the campaign’s decision to bypass public financing for the general election is suddenly upon it."
