If we raise $25,000, we can put $75,000 of boots on the ground in Nevada. Let’s win Nevada in November.
Four Directions found us a double-match, and three Balloon Juice Angels yesterday helped us raise over $6,500 on the first day!
One more Angel appeared later in the day yesterday, so I’m happy to say that we have a $2,000 Angel match available, starting now.
With the double-match plus the angel match, your donations – up to $50 person – turn into 6x that amount for Nevada.
So your $10 donation becomes $60, $25 becomes $150, $50 becomes $300 for Nevada.
I’m about to make dinner, but I’ll be back in a little while – in case anyone has questions. And to say thank you, of course, if we get some donations.
Remember: the fine print is that you only get Angel-matched if you post your donation in the comments. Otherwise, you get double-matched by the Four Directions donors, so Nevada gets 3x your donation instead of 6x!
Which account should I donate to? I only see a thermometer for Ukraine, not Nevada.
@jnfr: Only I could forget to put the thermometer in a fundraising post!!! It’s there now.
Also, the Ukraine thermometer is at the top in the sidebar, and the Four Directions thermometer is at the bottom in the sidebar.
If you click on the Four Directions Nevada picture right above the pie filter it’ll take you to ActBlue where the donation is made
Fifty dollars, added to the total…

Over $700 came in while I was having dinner! Nearly $600 of that was angel matched, and when all the matching is done that will be just over $4,000 for Nevada!
Thanks so much to everyone who has donated so far!
4 Directions and the angel are awesome! $10 doesn’t come close to what they are doing. So thanks to all.
$25 from me…$150 for Four Directions. Thank you angels!
@banditqueen: It all adds up. Also, where else can you get this kind of bang for your buck? :-)

Thanks to everyone who has donated so far! We are now at a collective $5,000 for Nevada (after all the matching) in the two hours since I put this up.
Hooray for the current angel, and all the donors – pretty amazing to see that this fundraiser is already 1/3 of the way complete, after what, only 2 days?! This blog is a force to be reckoned with.
Yay, another Angel! Work has been crazy and I missed the first fundraising post. In for $50.
@Leslie: One of the best parts about an angel match is that it resets with every new angel!
Our first Balloon Juice Angel from yesterday just added his $1,000, so the thermometer just jumped from $8,500 to $9,500!
Just donated $50.00!
@frosty: Thank you, frosty!
I donated $50.00, thanks for the great work!
Great work, everybody!
We have matched $975 of the $2,000 Angel match, so I’m sure there will be match money available for any overnight donations!
This is lovely. Thanks to everyone who jumped in, and to all the Angels.
$50 from San Diego!
In for another $50.
