ePatriots update

Just a quick update:

I posted about ePatriots at 10:46 a.m. PST. It is now 4:57 p.m. In that time, you guys have donated the following:

  Donors Total
Single Donations: 50 $3085
Sustainer Donations: 43 $1450
Total Donations: 93 $4535

Now think about this: assuming that all the recurring donors stick with the program for at least a year. That means that they have effectively chipped in $17,400.

So in other words, the seven hours ePatriots has been up have yielded a one-year take of $20,845.

Damn! I didn't see it coming, and neither did the DNC (I'm sure). My original goal was to raise $100,000 over the next 12 months. I think that goal was a little too conservative.

I can't WAIT until this gets a full roll-out. The DNC hasn't done any press because 1) no one knew if it would really work (what if 3 people donated? It would've been embarrassing), and 2) it's still officially in beta mode.

I hope our early successes will convince the DNC PR apparatus to aggressively hype the effort once it's rolled out throughout the entire blogosphere.
