Achievable goals to raise $4 million for OctoberSubmitted by ronpaul4pres on Fri, 10/05/2007 - 02:56
Let's work together to make sure the Ron Paul campaign meets its goal to raise $4 million for October. I absolutely love the idea of the $100 million pledge (http://www.pledgebank.com/Pauls-100mill), but it doesn't seem to grabbing substantial support. It is unrealistic. Let's work towards the campaign's goal.
The average donation to Ron Paul in Q3 was $40. Divide that into the $5 million raised in Q3, and you see he got roughly 125,000 donations. To raise $4 million with the same number of donations, the average donation must be $32 per month or about $8 per week.
I love this idea of a pledge website, and we can use it to set "small" goals get us there. Let's pledge $1,000,000 by the end of next week. Since we already have over 1,200 pledging $100 from the above pledge, I've set up 2 pledges to get us there:
25,000 to donate $32 to Ron Paul by October 13, 2007:
2,000 to donate $100 to Ron Paul by October 13, 2007:
Choose only one; although, it doesn't hurt to pledge to both. :) If you've already donated in October, please join one of the pledges and mark that you've already contributed! This is achievable!
