An Obama Minute

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

On Thursday, October 2nd at 10:30 AM on Broadway between 48th and 49th
Streets in Times Square, the founders and organizers of “An Obama Minute”
will be joined by Academy Award Nominee Rosie Perez, Alan Cumming and
other special guests to unveil a giant video billboard that will countdown
the hours, minutes and seconds to The Obama Minute on October 6th when
Obama supporters from across the country will attempt to raise $1 million
in one minute for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

The billboard will serve as a virtual town hall where supporters from
anywhere in the United States can text their message to the video screen
in Times Square with examples of “things you can do in a minute.”

The national grassroots campaign “An Obama Minute,”,
is aiming to direct over 10,000 people at the same moment to the
fundraising page they’ve set up on Barack Obama’s website. The “Obama
Minute” is expecting over $1 million in small donor contributions for
Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign in a single minute at 12:00
PM on October 6, 2008.
