Request Campaign Donations as Xmas GiftsSubmitted by jesubub on Wed, 12/07/2011 - 13:02
If you're like me, you have relatives pestering you for Xmas gift ideas. (Grrr, I hate the Xmas gift culture!!) This year, I'm doing what I did in 2007 — ask for donations to Ron Paul's campaign. In 2007, relatives donated about $150 to the campaign for me. I recommend that everyone do the same this year.
In typical years, I ask for donations to local charities, which yields $100-150/year. Please give it a try — for the campaign this year and for local charities in the future. (Silver bullion is my backup gift for those who insist.) Like me, I'm sure you already have too much crap as it is. It's a good feeling to open a card on Xmas saying a donation has been given on your behalf. In the case of the campaign, it's given in the name of the actual donor, which expands the donor list. Spread the word!!
