You may have heard that Bernie Sanders raised over $6 million online in the 24 hours after his win in New Hampshire. And I'm sure you know by now that his average contribution is only $27, because he mentions it in every speech.
Good for him.
But you know what? In addition to being the best candidate by far, Hillary Clinton also has the most supporters of anyone running in 2016...and I think we can do even better.
So today I'm announcing a 24-hour grassroots donation marathon (aka "moneybomb") called Madam President's Day that will run from midnight to midnight on Monday February 15th.
That's right: Presidents Day is being altered a bit this year in support of a truly historic future president that will finally break the highest and hardest glass ceiling...so I hope George Washington and Abraham Lincoln will understand.
Supporters are encouraged to donate as much as they can that day directly to Hillary for America, up to the maximum legal amount of $2,700. However, if you are on a budget like most of us are, here is the suggested donation:
Yep...one dollar more than what Bernie usually gets. That should be easy to remember, right? However, any donation that day would be great.
Madam President's Day begins late Sunday evening at the stroke of midnight, and I will put my money where my mouth is by making the first donation. When you donate to Hillary on Monday, don't forget to tell all your friends by using the hashtag #MadamPresidentsDay on Twitter and Facebook. Let's see if we can get it trending that day and build a wave of online financial support that no other candidate can match!
Are you ready to make history? Good. Because we are Hillary's army...and we won't be stopped until she is the next President of the United States.
