Gov. Perry Raises More Than $1 Million in Money Cannon Fundraising Effort

Governor Perry’s Money Cannon raised over one million dollars in 24 hours!  The original goal was $ 300,000 and the campaign more than tripled it!  The effort included a major online presence that resulting in numerous Texans donating through www.RickPerry.org.

The Texas Ethics Commission reporting period ends at midnight tonight, so you still have time to make a donation, even $ 5 or $ 10 helps!  You can donate here.

I am proud to say that over 55 Texans donated through my fundraising link!  Unfortunately for me, but good for Texans for Rick Perry, my boss David White who I challenged to a 24 hour fundraising challenge out raised me.  The bet was who ever raised the least amount of money in 24 hours has to shave their head.  Being a man of my word I went down to the Good Life Barber Shop in downtown Austin today and payed up.

Overall I think this is a win win situation.  I helped raised over one million dollars for Governor Perry, brought in new donors to the campaign,  got a free haircut (the least David could do is pay for it) and I will still have my hair (once it grows back) in 10 years, unlike David.

Stay tuned for an epic video of my new haircut.
