Obama Wants YOU – and your wedding registryPosted: June 28, 2012
Some couples ask for you to pay for their honeymoon, some ask for a donation to their favorite charity. And now, they can ask you to donate to the President’s campaign fund. President Obama’s campaign recently set up an event registry where you can ask for the gifts from your wedding/shower/bar mitzvahs/birthday to be turned into campaign donations.
Regardless of your political affiliation – this is awesome. The audacity of asking someone to give their hard earned money not to you as a gift but instead to a political figure they may or may not support is unreal. What do you do if you’re a Republican? Send a fruit basket? Props to the Obama campaign for making all people choosing gift registries super uncomfortable until November.
