I got mail from the Obama campaign this morning inviting me to donate:
... A previous donor has promised to match your donation to encourage you to give for the first time. This is your last opportunity to partner with a fellow supporter and make your donation go twice as far.I don't really have money to be donating to political campaigns right now — but I donated $100 anyway. As I said to the guy who's matching me (after you donate you're given a chance to drop them a note), he made the value proposition easy for me: "A little more beans and a little less hamburger for a couple of months against $200 for a better future? That's a no-brainer."
Your donation of $5 will become $10, $25 becomes $50, and $50 becomes $100. Double your impact by making a matched donation today:
If you feel the same way, maybe you'd like to take advantage of the matching offer too.
