Big dollar donors control politics. That needs to change.
We’re on a mission to make your voice heard.
In 2012, 84% of the House and Senate received over half of their donations from just 0.01% of Americans.
Candidates rely on donations to win elections. They need money — lots and lots of it — to pay
for all the advertisements and events that spread the word to get them elected. Needing donations wouldn’t
be a problem if everyone gave equally. But that doesn't happen. In the past election, 84% of those in the
House and Senate received over half of their donations from just 0.01% of the American population, who
donated $12,950 or more.
As a result, that 0.01% holds all the influence in politics. If candidates want to receive the donations
they need to win their next election, they must keep the 0.01% happy. As a result, the issues the 0.01% care
about get all the attention, while the issues you care about go unheard.
We want to change that. Your voice should be heard.
That's why we've created a win-win solution — for both you and candidates — that will work right now.
By making it as easy as possible to donate to your favorite causes, we're hoping to increase the number of small
donations to the point where large dollar donations no longer hold influence. You will be heard. Candidates will
raise more money. Everyone wins. Help us create a "Grassloot" movement.
