Sounds like a blast! Please remind all the attendees that although Illinois is a lock, both Indiana and Wisconsin would love to have more volunteers. Cross those borders and spread the blue from coast to coast!

The money made from the auctions will go to pay for buses going to Iowa. We'll also have bus sign-up sheets. Keep doing your good work in Wisconsin!

I wish I could be there. What a terrific idea! I've been registering voters here, at least. Good luck!

It might not be too late to do something in Atlanta. I got the idea from a friend in Northampton, MA.

Great event, Sandi. Thanks again for all your work. So many powerful images from the readings. And what a great community to sit with during the debate. Thanks to J. McManus for teaching me about "raising," so I recognized it when Obama did it re: Joe the Plumber.
