Democratic National Convention
  • This amazes me

    Michelle Obama sent this message today, following her speech at the convention last night:

    I know your life is full—with work, or school, or family—and yet you still find the time to help out when you can.

    You may have a tight budget, but you give what you can afford.

    A woman recently told the campaign her family skipped a pizza dinner at their favorite place so that they could make a difference in this election.

    That is the commitment that drives this campaign.

    If you can support Barack with a donation today, please know it makes a huge difference. If we win, it will be because of what you did at moments like this.

    Thanks,

    Michelle

    P.S.—It meant a lot to me to speak with you and everyone else last night. Thank you for everything you do.
