You're a blog reader. You know the DMI Congressional Middle Class Scorecard. Maybe you are one of the many, many blogs that has used the scorecard as a resource. Now you can help us keep the google adwords campaign alive so it can continue to give countless web surfers vital information about their elected representatives. Look- it only takes 300 people to donate $50 today to make the goal. But we are happy with $10, $20, $5,000, whatever you like!!
Help DMI raise $16,693.15 and keep our Middle-Class Google Ads on the NET!
Here's why this campaign is so important and how you can help:
In Congress at the Midterm: Their 2005 Middle-Class Record, DMI gave each member of Congress a grade based on how they voted on legislation of importance to current and aspiring middle-class Americans.
On June 20, we launched a one month Google AdWord campaign so that any person using Google to find information on their Member of Congress would instantly see an advertisement showing that member's grade on our report and a link to their full report card.
We need your help to keep our Google campaign running through November 7.
Since June 20, 6,802,566 people have seen our ads and learned more about their members of Congress, the important legislation debated in DC in 2005, and today's obstacles to achieving the American Dream.
To keep the campaign active, we need to raise $16,693.15. Please click here to donate today.
Blog It Today:
If you are a blogger please help us by cross posting this on your blog so we can spread the word.

We'll be tracking our fundraising progress here on the DMIblog because we view this as a netroots campaign at its heart. This is a chance to show the power of the netroots in forcing more government transparency so help us spread the word and if you can donate, please do.
