Today, April 21st at 1pm Eastern time, the grassroots organization that is attempting to raise a cool $1 million dollars for their favorite democrat, Barack Obama, will kick into 60 second fund raiser over drive.
The group announced yesterday that they have already reached two thirds of the amount in "pledged" contributions for the campaign dubbed 'An Obama Minute". This has left me a bit confused since I thought the idea was to hit that mark within 60 seconds of "GO", independent of any pre-orders. But that's what I get for thinking.
"The goal is to create a vehicle for everyday voters to organize and
amplify the extraordinary value of individuals working together," said
Scott Cohen, creator of the site and a Manhattan-based photographer. "The
power of Barack Obama's campaign is his ability to bridge political and
demographic divides and bring people together."
It will be interesting to hear the word coming from the site after the tally has been made. We'll keep you updated.
