Quick facts regarding Retire the Debt and The Denver Group

In response to some question I have been receiving:

With regard to Retire the Debt: I believe the reports circulating that Senator Clinton's campaign has hit the halfway mark on the amount needed to retire her primary season debt. This means that if people work really hard on this over the next two weeks the entire task could be polished off. My recommendation: let's use July 19th as a date to generate as many donations to retire the debt as possible. July 19 is the 160th anniversary of the First Women's Rights Convention held at Seneca Falls. An event is being held at the National Park there to commemorate the date. A great group of Senator Clinton's supporters are sponsoring all sorts of events related to this anniversary: learn more.

With regard to the Denver Group: We have begun to raise serious money via Act Blue. If you have not donated via that channel you can do so here, easily and securely. We are working double-step overtime to get the message out that the Democratic party must be kept democratic!

I cannot quite explain it but this post is making me smile inside and out. To know that we have been able to come together to 1)retire Senator Clinton's debt and 2) work toward a fair convention gives me a peaceful feeling.

Senator Clinton is so deserving of our respect and support and I feel very proud to be part of a group who are continuing to provide that.

Thank you, Heidi.

For any knitters or crocheters who are on the Just Hillary group is conducting a donation swap. We are encouraging donations for $20.12 to show that we will be ready from day one when Hillary runs for President in 2012. If you want to donate more or less, please do so with your .12, if you would like to participate please see the Ravelry thread.

I can't remember the exact dates, but I thought I read on your blog that Obama and Clinton lawyers are in negotiations regarding the convention/debt relief and that they were trying to wrap up those negotiations by July 15. If that's the case, then wouldn't it make more sense to shoot for a new fundraising date prior to the 15th so that Clinton can tell Obama to take a flying leap?

I just donated another $100 via the link you provided. The last monies I donated via seemed to go to her Senate reelection campaign instead. Thanks for providing the link and for all else that you are doing.
