Obama Group's Fundraising Email Says It ‘Isn’t About Asking You for Money’…Then Guess What It Does

"There's no one else out there quite like us,”

President Barack Obama pauses during his speech to members of the media during his last news conference of the year in the James Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House December 19, 2014 in Washington, DC. President Obama faced questions on various topics including the changing of Cuba policy, his executive action on immigration and the Sony hack.

You can probably see where this is going.

“Next week, we're facing our biggest fundraising deadline of the year,” Organizing for Action emailed supporters Tuesday. “But this email isn't about asking you for money.”

Of course, Sara El-Amine, executive director of the organization that grew out of President Barack Obama's two successful campaigns, wasn't done.

She heralded a number of progressive successes in 2014, including getting more people signed up on healthcare.gov, more states adopting same-sex marriage, 14 states raising the minimum wage, and getting gun restrictions enacted in Washington state.

“This email is just to say thank you. It's a long one, but let me sum it up by saying: There's no one else out there quite like us,” El-Amine said.

She concluded:

[T]hank you so, so much for your role in building this movement. We all depend on it.

We've got our work cut out for us next year -- what we can get done truly is in your hands.
