Does anyone think it may be appropriate for the campaign to donate maybe 1/4 of the moneybomb donations to a charity in Dr. King's honor?

The charity that I'm donating to is the "Save our nation fund" headed by Ron Paul. :)

Why? It's already going to someone who will continue the LEGACY of Dr. King. Now is not the time for more bronze statues...its a time for leaders.

The monetary return on a President Paul would far surpass any money that we could give to charities now.

I will add also that my family doesn't have much money. 100 dollars means a lot to us right now. Even so, I would be seriously offended if I gave 100 dollars for our cause and it was given away for something else.

Also, I personally admire Dr. King, but others don't. We couldn't use their money for this.

No, I think it is totally inappropriate. This is a political campaign, not a charity.

If we get Ron Paul elected, then you'll have more money every month in your pocket. At which point you will have more cash on hand to donate to whatever you want.

i also think people might get the idea that we are trying to buy off the residual of the whole newsletter fiasco

It was just a suggestion. I also know that electing Ron Paul would be the best continuation of his legacy. The fact is though, that many people who otherwise would not even consider voting for Dr. Paul, may take another look at him.

I appreciate your suggestion, but I honestly think that it would do the campaign more harm than good.

You're on the right track. You could be using some of these good-spirited donations to help out some every day needed charitable functions, here in America, in the name of RP. A charity bomb or something, you'd only need some leadership and a few good ideas.

If you can point out a charity that hasn't been co-opted than it is something to consider. Unfortunately, I don't think you are going to be able to find one.
