As we approach a crucial fundraising deadline on December 31st, Vice President Joe Biden sent an email to supporters today explaining why the campaign needs your support before we hit 2012.
I know we've been asking a lot of you lately.
We wouldn't be doing that, especially this time of year, if this weren't so important.
This campaign has an important financial deadline coming up. It's going to be the last one we'll have before 2012. And what we're able to raise before the 31st is going to have a big effect on what we're able to do next year to re-elect this president.
From the get-go, we built this thing one person at a time, each pitching in what they're able. Please step up and donate $3 today—or whatever you can. Every donation is going to count.
We've come a heck of a long way since 2008, but we've still got a lot of work left to do if we want to see this country go where we all know it needs to.
This last week before the deadline will make a big difference.
Thanks so much,
P.S. Right now, any donation you make automatically enters you for a chance to sit down for dinner with Barack and Michelle. You shouldn't pass that up.
