Multi-state effort: Help Cynthia McKinney get matching funds for Presidential Primary!

Wow. I can hardly believe the time is here. As a devout green, I was holding off on giving Cynthia McKinney a donation until I was certain she was a Green. Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney–once an outspoken, progressive Democrat–is now a Green in California! And, Cynthia McKinney has filed with the Federal Elections Commission as a “Green” candidate for President of the United States.

I couldn’t send my check in fast enough.

Imagine that! A former Congressperson seeking our third party line for a presidential run. It really is, just, well, cool. I am ecstatic. Now, we need to support her effort, and meet the challenge to raise $5,000. each from 20 states* in order to qualify for matching funds for the primary season. If we are successful, this would be the first time that a Green presidential candidate received matching funds for the primary.

*(That’s one hundred thousand dollars – oh!my!) (But, it’s only 200 $25. donations from each state.)

There are a few web-sites for Cynthia McKinney. And, the one I found a donation button on, it didn’t seem that easy to donate. So, I will list the web-sites below, if you wanna try that way. However, you could also just cut to the chase, like I did, and write a check to the place listed at the FEC, and mentioned as the default at the web-page. Either way, don’t forget to send your donor info.
