When a DUer needs a little help, the DU answers the call


Just before I was diagnosed with dementia I ran for office twice. The DU raised about $2,500 between the two runs.

When I started the donation page for Joe Biden there was the sound of laughter echoing over in the cave. Almost 1/2 of a million dollars later, they aren't laughing anymore.

Now duhneece is running for New Mexico State Senate District 33. Duhneece is true blue. She could use a little of the magic DU did for me when I ran. As little as $3 buys a yard sign, and a hand written thank you card sent by the USPS.

The DU has already raised $515. We can do a lot better.

I know times are hard for many DUers. IF you can't afford a few $, then please help keep this kicked and give this post an R.

For those that can afford to give a little, thank you. It takes 5-10 minutes for the goal-o-meter to show your donation in the total.

In democratic solidarity,

Omaha Steve
