Ron Paul to visit our Meetup Group here in New York! Can you attend?

Avery requested I fire off an email to provide you all an update of our standings in the Meetup competition to bring Dr. Paul to NYC for a private visit.

The subject line of this email is a prediction. My feeling is that we will see this subject line with an effective date soon after August 31st (the last date to make contributions) when we find out that Manhattan+ Ron Paul Action NYC Group has won the Meetup fundraising competition!

After our last update on Saturday, August 25th, this Meetup group had an enormous boost of support that garnered nearly $4,000 in donations propelling us into 1st place in the Meetup competition standings! Other groups nationwide saw this boon of donations from the New York group, and currently the Californians have raced ahead of us take first place with a lead of $273.00. I think this is a great thing, as this competition is clearly helping to provide the financial support the Ron Paul campaign desperately requires to compete!

Can you help members of our group who may otherwise not have a chance to personally meet Dr. Paul in person by making a contribution to the Meetup Group competition today? Every $25, $50, $2300 chipshot helps not only our Meetup group, but also and I'd say more importantly, Congressman Paul's campaign. I'd hazard a guess that our donations in the $25-$100 bracket in aggregate are of equal weight to the larger donations. Every little bit counts!

For those of you economic means (and/or are overtly generous as MANY of you have already demonstrated), keep in mind the following FEC guidelines

Are you single? You can only donate a total of $4,600 ($2,300 for the Primary and $2,300 for the General Election).

Married? Couples can donate a total of $9,200 ($4,600 for the Primary and $4,600 for the General Election).

In addition to the hyperlinks I've embedded above, here is the donation link:

Please keep in mind this competition is going to be very similiar to an Ebay auction, so on August 31st (consequently many of us get paid that day), you can expect a large spike in donations nationwide to try and sneak into first place. Keep an eye on the leaderboard here.

It's difficult to support the Meetup group by going straight to the website. Using our Meetup code "MU0050" is a necessity for your donations to contribute to our group total. If you do choose to use the website and not a link in this email, remember to use "MU0050" in the project code field.

On a final note, can you join us on Wednesday, September 5th at a bar to watch the Fox News Debate televised from New Hampshire? FOXNEWS DEBATE PARTY It's EXTREMELY HELPFUL to the Organizers if you can RSVP now, even with a "Maybe" or "No", so that Avery can plan for an appropriate venue based on the number of attendees. If you've never been to a Meetup, make this your first! They're a terrific place to discuss Dr. Paul and meet new folks.

Kind Regards,

P.S. Whoops -- You almost forgot to donate. Not to worry, CLICK HERE!
