This story about a woman who took her first step into the world of politics by donating $10 is fascinating. The web certainly has changed our lives. I became more involved thanks to the internet and Ms. Linnie Frank Bailey did to:
She didn’t foresee any of this activism. There was “no grand plan,” she says. She never thought politics would define her life; she had spent more time watching HGTV and the Food Network than reading news articles. But gone are those apathetic days. The Web, she says, has “awakened” her.
After the initial $10 online donation, after hours and hours of volunteering, then opening Obama Riverside, then winning a delegate spot to the national convention and, later, deciding to run for local office, Bailey, politically, has been born anew.
Go check it out. It’s fun to read how it all happened.
