An Important Wrap-Up Message About DemocracyFest...

As I mentioned (repeatedly) Democracyfest was great. An excellent opportunity to learn and network and see interesting speakers and meet wonderful people. BUT, for whatever reason they did not have the turnout they anticipated. (Maybe it was too close to YearlyKos? I chose between the two, and Demfest got the upper hand by being local.) Since the turnout was low, SD for Democracy is left with more than a bit of debt, so please give them a hand with whatever you can contribute.

From the above link.....

1) Buy T-shirts. We have some left over, in limited quantities and sizes. These high-quality shirts feature the eye-catching San Diego Bay DemocracyFest design by our own Leigh Mahon. Please go to to purchase shirts for $19.95 for one, or $29.95 for two. If you have questions, call the DemocracyFest line at 858-472-4168. Give them as gifts, wear them to your next protest or meeting!


2) Make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION. That's right, I said TAX DEDUCTIBLE. We have managed to find a way for people to donate to the cause of reducing the DemocracyFest debt by contributing to the Campanile Foundation, which is a 501[c][3] Philanthropic Foundation supporting San Diego State University. True to the DFA "any amount helps" style of fundraising, we invite people to send whatever they can or are comfortable with, to help us to retire the debt incurred in hosting DemocracyFest 2006. Once the debt has been retired, any additional checks received would be returned. We're not looking to come out ahead.

The directions are simple. Make your check payable to: The Campanile Foundation - DemocracyFest 2006.

Mail them to:

The Campanile Foundation
