Kira Davis is a fellow RightOnline blogger. As a recovering leftist, she does fantastic work demolishing leftist premises. Last night, Kira sent the following appeal to her readers:
I have never asked for help from my readers. My passion is for the future of my country and lending my voice to the fight to bring back constitutional values that have long been eroded in our political system. But today I break that record. The Democrat National Convention is in a couple of short weeks and I think this could be an incredible opportunity for a black conservative such as myself to engage those in attendance, challenge their views and maybe provoke some genuine conversation on the direction of the country. Plus, won’t it be fun to watch a “non-existent” black conservative for Romney blow some minds? It will also be a great chance to reveal just exactly who is attending the DNC in support of Obama, outside of the coverage of the mainstream media. I believe I can be a provocative and interesting voice in Charlotte next month, but I need your help to get there. I need to raise about $1500 for airfare, accommodations and childcare in order for me to travel to Charlotte on September 3rd. If you believe in what I do here at kiradavis.net and throughout the internet (including my latest project, therealfeminist.com) I am asking you to consider a donation to help me on my mission to make it to Charlotte. Any amount is appreciated. My friend Wendy Onstead has already set up a fundraising event on Facebook for me and others have pledged to help already. Will you join them? Donating is easy. Simply click the donate button in the sidebar to the right and enter the amount you wish to pledge. Donations are not tax-deductible. The only thing I have to offer you in return for your generosity is honest coverage from the DNC and a conservative voice you can trust in the midst of what promises to be a very interesting convention. If you can’t afford to give please share this with others and know that your readership and support is always appreciated regardless of your financial gifts.If we want to build plausible alternatives to the corrupt media, from time to time Conservatives are going to have to step up financially support good work. The dirty little secret is that if we can get 1500 people to donate $1 each, we can get Kira Davis to Charlotte. She's a good investment.
You can donate here.
