Deadline: Monday

Hello Everyone,

Evelyn here,

with a message from the camp for Presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

Dear Evelyn --

On Monday, everyone will be watching our fundraising totals to see if we can compete with the McCain campaign.

This month is the first test of our grassroots fundraising strategy since we declared our independence from the broken campaign finance system.

You can help build our organization and show that a movement of ordinary people giving only what they can afford is changing the way presidential campaigns are funded.

Now is the perfect time to step up and own a piece of this campaign. And if you make your first donation right now, you'll receive a special gift.

Make a donation of $15 or more by midnight on Monday, June 30th, and show off your support with an Obama logo car magnet:

Donate Before the June 30th Deadline

Thanks to the support of people like you, this is the first presidential campaign in a generation to build an organization in all 50 states.

This campaign is committed to changing the political map and competing in every part of the country, not just in traditionally Democratic areas.

It's going to require unprecedented resources to take on John McCain in states like Virginia, Alaska, North Carolina, Montana, Georgia, North Dakota, Indiana, and Colorado.

And right now, we're opening offices and adding staff in these states and many more. That's why your contribution now is so crucial to our success in November.

Make a donation of $15 or more before Monday's financial reporting deadline. Not only will you help build our 50-state strategy, but you will be able to show your support with an Obama logo carmagnet that's not available anywhere else:

Thank you for everything you're doing,

Obama for America

VIDEO: Barack speaks to staff

Hello Everyone,

Evelyn here,

with a message from the camp for Presidential hopeful Barack Obama.


Dear Evelyn --

I want to share a very special video with you that shows a side of Barack Obama few outside the campaign have seen.

A few days after he became the presumptive Democratic nominee, Barack spoke to campaign staff and volunteers at our headquarters in Chicago.

He shared his personal thoughts about what we had accomplished and outlined the challenging road ahead.

We were all so moved by what Barack had to say that I knew we had to share it with all of you:

Video: Barack Speaks to Staff and Volunteers

In just a few minutes, Barack expressed what this campaign is all about. He reminded us of the challenges we face -- and that our fellow Americans are counting on our success.

That's a message that everyone who believes in this campaign should hear.

And now that we have declared our independence from a broken campaign finance system, what Barack said about building a national movement for change is more important than ever.

The consequences of allowing John McCain to continue George Bush's failed policies are too great -- we all need to take action now.

Watch this video and join more than 1.5 million donors who own a piece of this campaign by making your first donation. If you give right now, your gift will be matched by a previous donor, doubling your impact. You can even choose to exchange a note with a fellow supporter about Barack's speech and why you are supporting this campaign.

Watch this video and make a matching donation of $25 now:

The stakes in this election couldn't be higher. Help build this movement by supporting our campaign today.

Thanks for everything you do,


Steve Hildebrand
Deputy Campaign Manager

The General's Health

Hello Everyone,

Evelyn here,
with the latest on the health of Attorney General Bill McCollum.
News Release: June 10, 2008

Statement from the Attorney General's Office

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Attorney General's Office released the following
statement regarding a medical procedure Attorney General McCollum underwent
earlier today:

“Last week, Attorney General McCollum's physicians discovered a singular
partial arterial blockage during a routine screening. At his physicians'
advice, the Attorney General underwent additional tests earlier this week
to determine the best course of treatment.

“Today, the partial blockage was successfully remedied by the placement of
a stent, a small metal tube that is inserted permanently into an artery to
improve blood flow. Attorney General McCollum's physicians expect that he
will have made a full recovery within the next few days and will be able to
return to his normal activities soon.”

This statement may be attributed to the Attorney General's Press Secretary,
Sandi Copes.

Crime has . . .

Hello Everyone,

Evelyn here,

with a little wisdom from the old but not so old. These saying of my are turning into a neat little collection.

Crime has . . .
Crime has no and every color. It has no economic level and the highest of
economical level; no age and every age; no sex yet every sex.

Know and be safe.
