Amy McGrath for Congress!

By the end of this post, if you read that far, you'll understand the connection between the heading and the photo!

Awhile back my friend Margaret came across a campaign video for Amy McGrath, a Democratic woman from Kentucky who wants to be a member of Congress. She's not quite "mad as hell and not going to take it any more," but pretty darned close. Read the article. Play the video. She's my our kind of woman. Margaret was so impressed that she (1) sent a contribution to Amy's campaign and (2) urged Facebook friends to do likewise. I played the video and sent my money. 

But that wasn't enough. Margaret's holding a social event next week where attendees are urged to bring stories about strong women to share AND offer something for a raffle. The raffle money will be sent to Amy's campaign.

The idea of this fabulous Kentucky woman's getting money from a pocket of women from Near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, tickles me no end. I'm going to the social event but not bringing a story. I'll listen instead (the world needs an audience). And I made this beach bag for the raffle.

Go on. Click the link. Read the article. Watch the video. See if you can resist helping this woman win. As Josh and Toby would say, "She's the real thing."

Wow! Amy has a powerful message and I hope all KY voters take her at her word. She and other's who are like-minded are what this nation needs - desperately.

Thanks for posting this link and information, Nancy!

Love this post, Nancy, and love this bag. Perhaps I'll win it:-) Thanks for using your blog to get the word out about Amy McGrath. And your talent to create this beautiful bag for the raffle. It is pretty darned cool that a small group of Kickass Women from PA are inspired to help a Kickass Woman from KY get elected!

I've seen, "liked," and posted Amy's video on my FB wall. She is awesome! And so is your totebag.

I love that you ladies are getting involved and helping out her campaign.
You made a lovely bag--I'd certainly buy tickets for it!

Wow! We need a whole army of women like Amy! I love that a group of women from PA are stepping up to help her.

Ann said...

So much work to do. I'm inspired by the women and men who are coming forward to create a Congress for all of us.
