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.
