We all have heard of the tragedy that hit Darcy Burner and her family just days ago. Well the netroots stepped up to help give Darcy some breathing room and a short vacation from having to raise funds.
We have been doing GREAT!
The comment below is from an update comment I left at EENR.
WOW! What a way to have a fundraiser... have your house burn down and almost lose your life!
But... we have ALL been stepping up to the plate! I believe in the last few days, on ActBlue, we have raised more money for Darcy Burner then her campaign did on their own just a few days ago.
Here is the update:
Remember that is started out at $250,000.
Here is what they did recently:

It looks like they raised $72,000 in 6 days. We have helped Darcy with about $91,000 in just a couple of days AND only on ActBlue. I am sure they got a lot more via their website.
So I say BRAVO to ALL of you!
Good luck Darcy Burner! We've got your back!
