Berning Up The DNC!
As you may have figured out by now, I have been elected to be a delgegate to the DNC representing Bernie Sanders in Philadelphia this July. What this means is I have a very expensive but CRUCIALLY important trip to plan! It's important to me for several reasons.
1. I am a PRIME example of the kind of disenfranchised and cynical young person in our political system. Although I was a registered Democrat the day I turned 18, I had lost faith in the system and removed myself entirely from the process. This campaign has motivated and inspired me to take a PROACTIVE role in my community and my nation.
2. I am not a big celebrity, smooth talking politician, or some other type of big wig. But despite my seemingly low status of influence, I share important values with millions of YOU! It's these values that inspire me to fight passionately for our poor and disenfranchised in our communities. It's these values that motivate me to stand with my LGBT brothers and sister. And it's these values that give ME of all people the opportunity to journey to Philadelphia and stand with thousands of others and we demand a CHANGE in the way things are done in our country!
I waited a little bit to launch this page because I have plans to do some other even more creative and engaging fundraising efforts in the coming month. But until I get those details worked out, I wanted to give you the opportunity to pitch in what you can. Some of the money you give early on will help me to do some even more creative fundraising down the line. Fundraising that I hope will first and foremost result in spreading BERNIE'S message!
I thank you in advance for your donations and look forward to keeping in touch with you all through social media as I set out to "Bring The BERN to Philadelphia"!
Hi, It looks like you stillneed funding. Have you considered linking this page to social media sites that have something in common with you wither geographically, occupationally, or culturally? Have you looked at the delegates to see if anyone would want a room mate? We really need you there! Even your high school reunion page might be a good place to post a link. I am a user on Reddit and your page has been highlighted so we are doing what we can to promote you!
There will be a twitter campaign tonight to highlight 2 important and timely issues. Please participate all you can between 7-10 at #DemexitNow #Funddelegates If we use these tags we should be able to get this trending. Please add a GENERAL LINK http://www.delegetmoney.com/ for funding and any reason why the funding is insufficient, cost r so high, commitment shown by delegates who r going anyway, hardship of costs, etc Also ask others to tweet as much as they can with us to get this trending! this is no longer about you gettingmoney but about making Democracy Work and overcoming the forces aligned against that!
