The $8,164 my campaign has raised is from well over 100 donors our average donation is less than $60 last week our donations were mostly donations of $5 and $10 - it was so important to me to run a campaign where all community members could be involved even if it's just a $5 donation. Proud to be grassroots!

It may sound naïve but only VOTES matter! We've got some wonderful candidates. This article implies that raising a lot of money means the person has the race locked up. Why does how much money they raised mean anything? Some of these candidates have a lot of name recognition and they don't need to raise a lot. Maybe some have loads of small donations from many people. People talk to their friends and spread the word and that's free.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 26 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $7 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
