From the Obama campaign, info about a service event and a fundraiser for the Inspiration Cafe...
On behalf of all my colleagues from the Obama campaign staff, I want to wish you a happy New Year and say thank you once again for your support which made our victory possible. I also want to invite you to a few events where you can celebrate Barack's victory and help improve our communities.
As you may know, Barack has asked all his supporters to participate in a community service activity on Monday, January 19th, which is Martin Luther King Day and "inauguration eve." Our team feels community service is the best way to honor Dr. King's legacy and usher in this new era in American history.
In this spirit, I ask that you join local Obama supporters at the Holiday Club on Chicago's northside that evening to both celebrate our victory together and learn about meaningful volunteer opportunities available through Inspiration Corporation, an excellent local non-profit that serves homeless and low-income individuals. Here are the details:
