Owen Ellickson
for American Refugee Committee
 SOUTH PASADENA, CA

Hi! My name's Owen Ellickson... I'm a California dad who tweets about politics a lot. Glamorous? You BET.

So: famed turkey Donald Trump has tweeted a lot of wild stuff over the years. I think this one is underrated:


From the beginning of 2009 to this summer, when Trump was pressured into making a donation to veterans' groups he'd long promised, do you know how much this "maximum expression of real generosity" personally gave to charity? 

According to the research of the great David Fahrenthold , in those seven years Trump gave a total of ten thousand dollars.  Which leads to two thoughts:

1) Really, dude? That's it? Gross.
2) We can beat that.

Let's beat that! All donations here (minus GoFundMe's 4.25% cut) will benefit the American Refugee Committee, a charity that provides health care, shelter and other services to refugees from Syria, Rwanda, Myanmar and other embattled countries in Africa and Asia. ARC spends 92% of its budget on its programs, earning it an A+ rating from CharityWatch and a four-star rating from Charity Navigator. (For more information about what they do, click their link above.)

A donation will help people in need, including members of all the groups Trump has bashed (refugees, women, people of color, Muslims... boy, he's been busy). It will add one more pebble on the avalanche of humiliation that awaits him in November. And, if you've been following the #TrumpLeaks I write on Twitter, donations of certain amounts will earn you unique dialogues I'll e-mail to you. (Details to the right.)

So, if you have a moment and a bit of money to spare, help us #GiveMoreThanTrump. Thanks!

I'm pleased to note that Owen's campaign has now matched the most recent royalty check for "The Art of the Deal" which author Tony Schwartz donated to the National Immigration Law Center, as David Fahrenthold reported here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/10/04/trumps-co-author-on-the-art-of-the-deal-donates-55000-royalty-check-to-charity/?postshare=9991475609249000&tid=ss_tw
