In 2 days – on Wednesday – supporters of Bonnie Watson Coleman for Congress are launching a 24-hour blitz to raise money to power this woman to a seat in Congress, the seat we’d like to see her inherit from one of New Jersey’s best ever in Congress, Rush Holt.
If you’ve never seen a money blitz (also called money bomb) it’s an awesome ramping up of outreach and fundraising – friend-to-friend – to crowdsource critical mass behind an important candidate. Once it gets rolling, it’s amazing how many people get involved – at all levels. And it’s fun.
So, Wednesday, give whatever you can. You don’t even have to leave your home, and you can participate and track what’s going on from anywhere, including from your smartphone. Every single dollar is going to help Bonnie’s campaign; a fight for women’s rights, fair and equal wages, affordable healthcare, marriage equality, and job and infrastructure creation.
There will be surprises. There will be famous names. But most of all there will be progressive people like you, who want January 2015 to include the moment when Congressman Rush Holt turns his exceptionally well-represented CD12 congressional district over to the first African-American member of Congress in New Jersey’s history, solid progressive and fine woman Bonnie Watson Coleman.
