Thread: Donate EARLY On The 16th!

    The best time to donate will be between 2 AM and 8 AM Eastern time. If you look at RonPaulGraphs.com, that is the slowest time of the day generally. There will be a lot of donations right after midnight, so to take the load off the server, wait a few hours if you can. Since it's a weekend, staying up late should be no problem.
    Ron Paul will be remembered long after the other candidates fade into obscurity.

    Actually, we need to wait even later. When I donated on November 5th, I donated when it was exactly 12:01 a.m. "cell-phone" time (aka, the exact right time) and on my credit card statement, it said it counted the donation as taking place at 11:46 p.m. on November 4th, so I would advise waiting until 12:15 am to donate on December 16th to make sure we get as big a total as possible for the Teaparty.

    12:15!

    I very much agree with this.

    Very important observation!

    We need to get Wolf to say "Amazing, Amazing numbers".

My rational is that getting in as many donations as possible quickly could have the effect of bumping the total donations for that day. If we start off really strong it will create a ton of excitement and have people either on the fence about donating give, or entice other people to give more. Additionally, we could get some media reports during the day that would get the word out about the Tea Party.

    "Amazing, simply amazing! In just 12 hours today, the Ron Paul campaign has pulled in $4 million!" Also, might cause all of us to donate early and also later because we won't stand having to sit on the sidelines for the rest of the day.

    Agree or disagree?
    This makes so much sense

    This is a good point. So maybe we should all just donate before we go to bed or when we wake up for those early risers.

    JWallace sums up the reasons to donate early quite nicely:

    "Donate as early as you can on Dec. 16. The best strategy would be to donate after 12am, before going to bed.

    Why?

    1) Lower website traffic than during the daylight hours on Dec. 16.
    2) Easier cc/payment processing.
    3) Big early morning results will give the MSM something to report first thing in morning
    4) Media coverage+Early $'s = Bigger snowball, momentum.
    5) Frees you up to go to Boston (or other local Tea Party) event."
