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."
