Help Bernie volunteers get to Iowa!

Pitch in to help volunteers from NYC and Philly travel to Iowa to canvass for Bernie ahead of the caucus on February 3!

All donations will go toward travel and room and board expenses for canvassers. Your donation will help some of the most committed Bernie volunteers have the biggest possible impact - together, we can win Iowa and beyond!

Update: We're overwhelmed by how successful this campaign has been! Your donations will go to:

- Plane tickets for volunteers travelling to and from Iowa
- Renting cars to help them travel to canvassing sites throughout the state to help the campaign meet its goals
- The cost of housing and meals while volunteers are in Iowa
- Lost wages and childcare for the time volunteers are spending canvassing.

Our donors' incredible generosity has made it possible for even more experienced, committed canvassers to help win this key first state for Bernie! As we go forward in planning our trip, we'll be disbursing the money among our volunteers via reimbursement for those who have already spent money on the costs listed above, as well as directly covering these costs for those who need it. All decisions about how funds are used are made by consensus among the four main organizers of the trip - two from New York City, and two from Philadelphia.

Emma Claire, one of the organizers (and the administrator of this campaign) will be receiving the money donated directly and handling reimbursements through her bank account. Additionally, for those who need it, Emma Claire will be providing funds ahead of time to cover any of the above expenses for volunteers who can't afford to wait to be reimbursed. Though we don't anticipate having any left over after trip costs, any remaining donations will be used to fund our other Bernie canvassing efforts in early states.
