Raising ’em right

Or Left, in fact:

I had promised to offer matching funds on his proceeds, so thanks to the generosity of our neighbors, we mailed a check for $65.60 to the campaign today. (I had suggested perhaps “Good luck” as a more appropriate sign off, but Ben, with less experience of losing than I, thought that sounded lame. I like the boy’s confidence.)

    Excellent idea; what a great way to get your kids politically involved! I put a pic of my daughter in front our Obama sign on her blog (and added a poll on its appropriateness — we’ll see!)

  4. Mae had a lemonade stand for Obama last weekend, too! With one of her school friends… I need to post pics!

    She and her friend raised $100, and when they dropped it off at the phone banks, one woman got very teary.

    Go kids!!
