Democratic National Convention
I need to raise the funds by July 1st, 2016 in order to make the trip. This is my first presidential election, and I want to be as involved in the process as I possibly can. I started small, at my local precinct convention and have worked my way up to here. I'm learning more and more about the way our election system works, and being inspired by the people around me who believe in the future we can make. I can't wait to go all the way to the Democratic National Convention to see what our election system is made of and play my part in it, and I hope you will support me!
This is the opportunity of a lifetime, to play such a role in what will surely be one of the most pivitol elections our Nation will see, and my very first one! I am so grateful for all of your help achieving this!

However, even though the event is over, it is still not paid off. I still owe about $350 on the hotel, so anyone who could spare a donation to get this convention behind me is greatly appreciated!
And remember, the Revolution is not over! It's only just begun!
Hi Laura, I too was surprised to see the 6K request. Then I came across another delegate who put a copy of the notice received from the DNC. As Angelina mentioned, the figure is the approx cost the DNC has stated it would cost. Some delegates are able to chip in more, out of pocket so therefore that's why they're requesting less funding. Here is a link to the delegate with the DNC notice: Gall4Bernie
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! you may also want to make a personal appeal on Tumblr/reddit
Hook up with other Bernie delegates to share a room and transportation. The Berners plan to eat the free food that will be available in hospitality and meetings rooms, and in hotel lobbies. Some hotels offer free breakfast - put some in your ba for later.
Where are you coming from, Asia? Why would you need $6,000?
