Update on Mayor Pete's road to 65,000 donors

(copied and pasted from an email I received from him)

Hi there,

Earlier this week, we announced some fundraising statistics: In the 24 hours immediately following the CNN Town Hall, we raised $600,000 from over 22,200 donations.

Here's what's more exciting: We are 85% of the way to the 65,000-donor metric required to be invited to the DNC debate. As of this morning, 55,359 people across the country have invested in this bold vision for our future.

Donor Update

The national exposure generated by the CNN Town Hall certainly helped boost our numbers over the last 72 hours, but most of our donors actually invested before that. Through your support, the work of our Grassroots Fundraising Team, and small-dollar donors in every state across the country (and PR and DC, too), we're on a solid path to being invited to the debate stage.

We're not there yet, though, and we need your participation to make it to 65,000. Would you please consider making a $3 donation today?

If you did quick math above, you calculated that our average donation in that 24-hour period was $27.03. Campaigns always talk a lot about that metric -- the "average dollar donation," because it is supposed to prove grassroots support.

We're committed to being honest and transparent with our data -- especially with you, our earliest supporters. We look at other metrics, like the percentage of our total amount raised brought in through donations under $200. (Right now, that number is 65%.)

We'll continue to crunch the numbers on our end, particularly as we approach the end of the month and close the books on this fiscal quarter. We can't wait to share the full story of the data with you.

If you can, please make a $3 donation today, and be included in that story:

Thanks again,

Pete for America

You are given $300 million to make a movie. Only catch is that it has to bomb at the box office or you and your loved ones die.

What do you make?

something really cool happened to me this weekend

As some of you know, I make and sell pussyhats (a few of you here have been customers of mine-- thank you) and this forum encouraged me to open an Etsy store with them.

Well on Saturday, I was at the NYC Women's March and I saw a mother/daughter pair wearing hats with a yarn I am very familiar with. I asked them where they got them and they mentioned an Etsy store. The daughter told me her first name and I recognized her as a customer of mine (I only had 1 transaction where I sold 2 of that hat to 1 person). She told me her experience was great and asked me for more cards.

It was such an awesome feeling seeing my work out in the wild.

Will Sarah Palin ever be relevant again

For years, I dressed as Sarah Palin for Halloween (2008-2014). Last time I did, nobody recognized what my costume was supposed to be.

I'm Kon-Mari-ing my closet and my SP costume is staring at me (red jacket, black pencil skirt). Should I send to back to the Goodwill that it came from?
