Personal Fundraising


It’s no secret we are Obama women. We are committed to Barack Obama’s vision for America. We are committed to being a part of the process—or as we used to say ‘back in the day’ of protest marches and sit-ins—“If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.”

We had the amazing good fortune to meet Barack a year ago at the Barack on Broadway fundraiser in New York. Not just look at him from afar and cheer with the rest of the crowd—we actually had an up close, have a conversation meeting. OK, it wasn’t more than 5 minutes, but it was real. We were there!  And although that encounter was brief, it left us even more convinced that he was the right person to lead our country in a new and brighter direction. 

As part of that event, we had our picture taken with Barack, and we have proudly displayed it everywhere we could. We have seen many of you in person as we have toured with Gotta Keep on Tryin’ over the past year and have, without shame and with very little provocation, whipped out our cell phone copy of the photo. It’s on our MySpace and Facebook pages as well as our blog. Virginia’s mom carries her framed copy with her just in case someone hasn’t seen it yet.

We know that many of you are as committed as we are to electing Senator Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America. We wanted to find something concrete to do, and the one thing the campaign can use, in addition to our votes, is the money to continue both the grassroots and media outreach necessary to get people to the voting booths on November 4th, because that’s what really matters.

So in conjunction with Brett Deutsch,, the photographer who took the picture (and we fully admit right here that this was HIS idea) we have arranged to send you an 8X10 copy of the photo that has made our mamas proud, our photo with Barack Obama. It will be  autographed by us—sorry, we don’t know Barack that well—yet. All for a campaign donation of $50.00.

It’s a pretty painless process. Click the Donate Now button, make your contribution, email a copy of your receipt to us at along with your mailing address and we will send you your 8X10 glossy!

We truly appreciate the support you have shown us for the past 11 years. And we know that Barack appreciates what the country is doing to put him in the Oval Office. Thank you for helping us help Obama.

And, if you are a supporter of the other team—we apologize in advance for this solicitation.

Barack the Vote!

Donna & Virginia,,
