Pay Day

Over at BlueOhioan, they're throwing what they call the "Friday House Party" every week from now until Election Day '08. Look in the upper right hand corner of that blog to see how to make a small donation to an Ohio dem.

Coincidentally, there's also an ActBlue link in the upper right hand corner of this blog. Right now, it mainly has places to donate to people who aren't running yet, like the future Dem Nominee in OH-12. I'll transfer my online pushiness over there as time goes by.

If you want to donate money today to a live human being who needs it for something less than eight months away, and you know you do, you can still give it to Jerid, even though you won't get the experience I had last night of hanging out at the fundraising party. Bob Shamansky, the most recent Dem nominee in OH-12, was there. Lots of blogosphere folks as well. I finally actually met Jerid. I'm not sure what I expected, but he looks less like the guy at the end of the Appalachian Trail and more like the guy in American Pie, but that might just have been a context effect.

So anyway, rather than contributing a droplet to the presidential bucket, consider making Friday a pay day where your cash can have a real effect. And remember, if you contribute to candidates for state-level offices, you get up to $100 refunded back to you even up.
