"When I feel like someone is supporting me, that makes a difference."
Alanna in Virginia is an interior design student and a supporter of President Obama.
"It’s important to remember that President Obama isn’t just representing the upper class or even the upper middle class—he’s representing everyone, and sometimes you have to focus on the people who have the fewest rights to begin with in order to get everyone on an equal playing field.
"So far, I feel personally supported by things President Obama has done. He’s not going around trying to restrict women’s rights, and he’s vocally against people who are trying to do so."
To Alanna, giving to the campaign is an investment in her future:
"I think a lot of people just believe that their five dollars can’t do anything, but if we look back, this is the stuff that’s going to be in the textbooks. When our kids ask us if we remember any of this, we can say, ‘yeah, I spent Saturdays canvassing and I donated every month,’ or we can say, ‘I was on Facebook the whole time, and I wasn’t paying attention.’ You just have to decide.
"I really strongly feel that I’ll look back at this and think that I did the right thing forever. My financial support and my volunteer time are how I put my support behind a president who I think is really fighting for this country."
2.4 million people have stepped up to own a piece of this campaign—join them before the July 31st fundraising deadline.
