Let’s raise a drink with Riverdaughter and everyone at Just Say No Deal tonight. We are all working our tushies off every day and when the sun starts to set and the crickets and peepers start to sing, it’s time to head on out to the deck with a tall, cold drink and a good book our laptops so we can patio blog. If I hadn’t started Puma PAC I wanted to start a blog written by an Irishman named Murphy who likes to sit outside and talk politics while drinking Jameson’s and call it Paddy O’Bloggin.
But anyways, We also need to raise money! It is the last day of the month. Puma PAC will probably raise about half of what we raised in June. This makes sense to me because so many of our members contributed everything they could to pay down Hillary’s debt in July. But August is a HUGE month for us. We are still raising funds to help Pumas get to Denver. Right now we have raised almost enough for one bus from NYC. If we don’t raise much more than that then we’ll prioritze helping Puma PAC members get to Denver by subsidizing their trips as much as we can.
Puma PAC is also taking the lead on coordinating activities and visibility in Denver. We are setting up a Puma Headquarters inside the city to serve as a live-blogging station, a meeting place, and an oasis for Hillary delegates and Pumas to meet, get to know each other, and escape from Obama Movement Mania. No We Won’t Radio will be there. 18MillionVoices will be there. Riverdaughter will be there. Just Say No Deal will be there. And, of course — we’ll be there! This costs money — not all that much — but it’s not free. The other groups in the JSND will be helping us all weekend long — we are planning a weekend fundraiser for all the JSND groups whereby all will be encouraged to contribute to Puma PAC so we can have the most effective (and fun!) counter-movement in Denver as possible.
Please help tonight if you can. And thank you, as ever, to all the generous Pumas who have contributed and continue to contribute. Click here to CONTRIBUTE — no donation is too small (but there is a $5,000 limit for individuals )
