Conservatives for Palin is proud of the endeavor, and justifiably so. After all, C4P contributors did all of the planning and heavy lifting. Although the good folks involved in that site and this one don't always see eye to eye on everything, when they notified us of what they intended to do, there was never any question that we would lend a hand. We share the common mission of supporting Gov. Palin in whatever she chooses to do. As Team Sarah's Bill Collier posted:
"This is not about any one website. This is about helping Governor Palin, and at the end of the day, the story should be that many groups and websites rallied to help an honest and decent public servant."Among those many websites, we want to give a shout out to our fellow Bloggers for Sarah Palin member sites which fully participated in the webathon. They are: Caffeinated Thoughts, House of Eratosthenes, Republican Catholics, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's Accomplishments, Texas for Sarah Palin, The Book of Sarah and The Spyglass.
The webathon has raised six figures worth of donations for the Alaska Fund Trust so far. There is still the remainder of this day for more contributions to come in. Many donors prefer to wait until the last day of a fundraising effort to make their contributions, so expect that thermometer to keep climbing. Considering that the maximum allowed contribution was only $150, that's some pretty good grassroots fund-raising. In just a matter of days, AFT should release the hard numbers on how much it has raised since the legal defense fund was organized at the end of April. No matter what the percentage of the total is that was raised by the dozens of bloggers who joined C4P in the webathon, they can all be proud of their efforts.
Update: With Sunday's contributions, the Webathon raised $115,585. That's over $16K a day. Not too bad, not at all.
