What a blessing. Two days ago I learned I'm going to have dinner with President Obama.
I guess I should finally start listening to my father, Milton (he's 86 years old).
He always taught me that when you give, you receive.
"Janet," my dad said, "You gotta start supporting President Obama. Support your politicians. Support the President, so that your voice can be heard."
"I do support the President," I told him.
Well, here I am.
I'm telling you this because the campaign is picking the next guest in a few hours -- and I hope my story inspires you to add your name to mine.
Join me by donating $3 or whatever you can to help the campaign and be automatically entered to win Dinner with Barack.
The truth is, I don't usually enter these kinds of things. I gave $25 last week in response to an email from the campaign, but not for one second did I think my name would be drawn.
I donated because I want a president who cares enough about his supporters to sit down for a meal, just like we do in our own families.
And because I was anxious to support the President's campaign. It was my time to give.
I hope you'll join me at the table with President Obama. As I mentioned, they're picking the next guest tonight:
And mind your parents, people. It pays off.
