Counting it up

September 23rd, 2008


How many times I’ve received the Kilkenny email about Palin: 4
How many times I’ve given to the Obama campaign: 1

How many times I’ve received the Women Against Palin email: 3
How many times I’ve given to the Obama campaign: 1

How many times I’ve received the Gloria Steinem essay about Palin: 5
How many times I’ve given to the Obama campaign: 1

How many times I’ve received the Anne Lamott essay about Palin: 3
How many times I’ve given to the Obama campaign: 1

How many times I’ve received the email to give to Planned Parenthood in Palin’s name: 4
How many times I’ve given to the Obama campaign: 1

As much as I like to receive, I know first-hand that receiving even the most inspiring words won’t change the outcome of anything. I’m giving to the Obama campaign today, because I’ve done the math, and I have a lot of catching up to do.

Give $15. Give what you have, or (like me) give money you don’t yet have. Join me in changing the outcome of everything.

  5. Thanks … I really appreciate the links because I’ve NOT received all of these multiple times, but I’m a bit relieved reading a few of them this morning … and hopeful right along with you that Obama will be our next President.
    Hugs and blessings,

  6. Obama is the first (and only) politician I have ever given money to. I have given twice now, and figure I probably will again before November. Thanks for joining the ranks supporting Obama.

  8. Thanks for the Anne Lamott link — I hadn’t seen it yet. You’ve probably gotten the Eve Ensler email, too: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eve-ensler/drill-drill-drill_b_124829.html
    And thanks for the invitation/kick in the butt — gonna go donate now.
