• Grassroots fundraising contest: President Obama on your caller ID

    Imagine seeing "Barack Obama" pop up on your caller ID.

    How cool would that be?

    And while I can't promise that's how his number would show up, I can promise that someone like you will be getting that call sometime soon.

    We're launching our second national Grassroots Fundraising contest ... right now.

    Whoever gets the greatest number of donations to their grassroots fundraising page between now and 11:59 p.m. this Saturday night will win a call from President Obama—for themselves or anyone they choose.

    And we're adding a twist this time around: Another winner will be selected from a pool of everyone who gets 10 or more contributions.

    So don't waste a second—here are a few tips to help you get started:

    This Saturday is a huge fundraising deadline, and the donations you bring in through your grassroots fundraising page will play a major part in helping us meet our goal.

    That's why I love grassroots fundraising. When your friends donate to your page, they're stepping up to own a piece of this thing. You might even end up inspiring a few of them to create their own pages—and start getting their own networks involved in re-electing the President.

    So let's go. You've got six days to win a phone call from the President—start thinking about what you'd ask him, or who you'd want him to call.

    Head to your grassroots fundraising page today. Good luck!
