I am asking for 65,000 grassroots, individual donations (doesn't matter how much $) to go to the democratic Presidential June 26th debates. Please help if you can. :)

Hello world. It's me, Catherine Forsman. They say it cannot be done, but who wants to live their life thinking that?

In order to have a chance to compete in the first debate on June 26, I need 65,000 individual contributions. Please help me get there.

Also, please do not contribute anything that would cause financial hardship, but please contribute if you can, even if it is $1 dollar. Every contribution counts.

Given that I do not have a lot of money, and I am starting rather late (my father always said I was a late bloomer), I am doing this in a way that is iterative and homegrown (working full-time, fundraising through social media, posting videos to youtube so everybody can see what it is like). So, please find me on social media for updates.

youtube channel coming soon at Catherine Forsman 2020.

Why? Because I think it is important in a democracy to understand that it does not matter where you start, or where you come from, but what you bring to solutions and how you go about manifesting that. It is ok to be authentically yourself, to strive, and to know that no matter what the outcome, it is worth doing.

I will be talking about my ideas on healthcare, the environment, and technology, and most of all, how there is a way for us all to make a difference as long as we know we are part of a solution.

There are a lot of very good candidates, supporting me does not mean you do not think other candidates are viable, it means that you are willing to give me a chance.

I will always try not to disappoint anybody who wants to see what it is like to run. I will document everything along the way. I know the beauty and good in people in this country because I have seen America when it is hurting most (after disasters like Katrina and 9/11), and I have seen it at its most beautiful. What I know is that in a democracy is for everybody.
