Saturday at midnight is the deadline to get donations for the grassroots fundraising challenge—which means there are only four days left for you to win a phone call from President Obama for you or someone you know.
The last time around, challenge winner Meri asked President Obama to give a call to her son Taylor—who’s been a supporter of the President since he volunteered as a high school student in 2008.
Here’s Taylor on how he ended up getting a call from the President, and what it was like:
“Being the dedicated Obama supporter that my mother is, she didn’t waste time getting back on the President’s campaign website to help raise some funds on his behalf, and I guess the donations just started piling up.
“When she started getting closer to the top, she would let me know how she was doing: ‘Taylor, I just saw your friend donated $5 to my page!’ Selflessly, she reminded me towards the end that my 21st birthday was approaching and that she might consider giving the call to me if she won … and that’s what she did.
“It was really wonderful to have a chance to talk with the President. I told him that I was going to be studying abroad in Egypt in the spring, and he said, very sincerely, that people like me, doing what I was doing, were real assets to the country, and then he said he was proud of me. That really meant a lot to me. Then, at the end, I told him how he had truly inspired me in the 2008 elections and how the work he was doing gave me great hope in the country.”
If you have a personal message to tell the President, or if there’s someone you know who does, join in the challenge today.

President Obama sent an email this morning explaining why he and the First Lady are so excited to host dinner with a group of supporters and their guests.
It's not all that often that Michelle and I get to host a casual meal with friends.
That's one of the reasons we're both excited about the upcoming dinner with three supporters and your guests.
It's the first one we've ever done like this together, and we'd love to have you and whoever you choose to join us.
Chip in $3 or whatever you can today—and you'll automatically be entered to be one of our dinner guests.
I enjoy these dinners not just because they're a way to connect with supporters across the country.
They also say a lot about the kind of campaign we're running.
We don't take a dime from D.C. lobbyists or special-interest PACs—never have and never will. Instead, we believe in the kind of politics that gives everyone a seat at the table—so we're literally offering these seats at dinner to folks who are willing to step forward and be a part of it.
There are just a few days left to add your name for a chance to be one of our guests at the next dinner, and help build this campaign before 2012 finally arrives.
Make a donation of $3 or whatever you can today—and automatically enter to be there.
