Contribute Now to Democratic Women's Money Bomb

Goal thermometer

Women's political organizations like EMILY's List helped level the playing field for women candidates and have changed politics forever.

But women are still only 17% of Congress.

It's time to combine the power of the purse with the Internet to help elect more pro-choice Democratic women to Congress!

We know that "money bombs" have been used as a successful online fundraising tactic. The Democratic Women's Money Bomb (DWMB) seeks to pool the donations - small and large - of women and men who care about electing progressive women. Think of the power we can have if we all gave even just a small amount at once to a particular woman running for Congress.

If we picked one candidate on a particular day and all gave a certain amount - say $5, $12 (for 2012) or more - the impact on her campaign could be enormous.

Our first Money Bomb is going to last a little while longer while we try to build support for the project - but it will be for Oregon State Sen. Suzanne Bonamici, who is running in the special election for OR-1. Sen. Bonamici is a strong advocate for women and families, but faces a primary against two male candidates who have a fundraising head start. She needs our support today to win!
