Thank you sooooooooo much again to everyone who donated to Obama/Biden 2012 through The Obama Diary page on OFA – we reached our $1,000 target last night, just a couple of days after setting the page up, which was completely brilliant 😉

Some of you very kindly got in touch today to ask me to up the limit from $1,000 so that they could donate too, so I’ve done that – thank you again.

I’m going to spare you all these reminders about the fundraiser, I’ve just put a link to the OFA page in the sidebar on the right, so if you ever have a spare $10 or so and feel like donating that would be great.

The legend that is Meta also has a fundraising page at OFA – here – which is heading towards $5,000. You’re a star, Meta.


This is for Suzanne:
