157 Small Donors to Go

In our fundraising efforts to attend the Democratic Convention in August, we've decided to focus on a small donor campaign. We figured out that it'll take us 240 people contributing $25 each for us to reach what we need to go to Denver and provide you with the best convention coverage in America. So far, we have the equivalent of 83 ($2085), leaving us 157 to go. Anyone reading this should be able to donate $25 to help us get there.

(BTW, if you want a preview of our Denver coverage, check out our Netroots Nation 2008 Coverage).

Go to PayPal and donate through our Florida Progressive Coalition account (, or you can write a check to Florida Progressive Coalition and send it to me:

Kenneth Quinnell
3328 Whirlaway Trail
Tallahassee, FL 32309

You can also inquire about advertising by sending me an e-mail. FPC is a media entity set up as an LLC, so we don't fall under campaign finance laws and contributions are not tax-deductible. But they do go to a good cause.

If we don't get the 157 donations we still need, someone will have to stay home and miss the convention. That shouldn't happen, as there's no need for your $25 to prevent someone from going, so give as soon and as often as you can.

We'll also publicly thank all of the donors, so let us know if you wish to remain anonymous or pseudonymous. Our latest contributions came from:

Betsy Angert
