I first met Barack Obama in 1992.

Back before he was a state senator, a candidate, the President of the United States, a husband or a father, he was a 30-year-old guy running voter registration drives in Chicago. He made an impression on me -- and when, in 2007, he decided to run for president, I signed up without hesitation.

I thought, if I could help Barack Obama get to the White House, I would have accomplished something great in my life.

It's been a long and amazing journey, and our small team of a few became a movement of millions. Now, we're in the final days of his last campaign, fighting to keep Barack Obama in the White House. We're planning his last Election Night -- and he wants you to be there.

Donate $X or whatever you can today, and you'll be automatically entered to meet President Obama and be right up front at his Election Night speech:

[url]

I don't know how this is going to end. But no matter what, I know each of us will have given this campaign everything we've got.

I hope you can be there on the big night.

Flight and hotel are covered for you and a guest -- donate $X or whatever you can today, and you'll be automatically entered:

Thanks for everything you've done and will do in these last days. Let's win this.

I'm asking you to dig a little deeper, just found out that Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of this month, putting us $X million behind during these crucial final days.

The math here is pretty simple: With that cash advantage, they can outspend us by $X million per day, every day, for the final 11 days.

negative ads trashing the President, you, me, and everything we've accomplished together over the past four years.

And we know what we have to do.

We just found out how much more money Mitt Romney and the Republicans have in the bank: $X million.

I hope that sounds like a lot to you, because it is. And it doesn't even include outside groups.

That is a massive advantage to have with such a short time left. But we have the power to decide whether that will be the determining factor in this election.

Help close that cash-on-hand gap so our voices don't get drowned out in a tidal wave of negative ads -- chip in $X or more now:

[url]

I know this campaign has asked a lot of you. That's why it's so important that we don't slow down now, when we've come so far together, and when this race is so close.

A $X million disadvantage means we could have to fight back against an estimated 780 30-second ads in a battleground state like Colorado. With only 11 days left, that's a devastating prospect.

Thanks to you and more than 4 million other grassroots donors, we're close, but we really need to close this gap -- and close it immediately.

So, please donate $X or more right now to keep this campaign strong straight up until the last vote is cast on November 6th:

Obama - Biden --

We just learned that Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $X million more to spend than we do, as of last week. They brought in $X.8 million in just the first 17 days of October.

That doesn't even include the money outside groups are throwing into record ad buys in battleground states right now.

Think of what that kind of money can do right at the end, in a race as close as this.

Right now, each day, each dollar, is more critical than the last.

Donate $X or more today to close the gap.

We have two choices:

Watch the other side knock Barack Obama around with misleading ads and hope for the best. Or dig deeper every day, with just 11 days to go, and remember that our strength has always been in the number of people who support this president, not the number of super PACs and billionaires who can fund attack ads in Ohio.

If we can close the gap, our ground game will do the rest to take us over the top. But after a year and a half of building and fighting and getting ready for Election Day, we cannot allow ourselves to be outdone at the very end.

Please donate $X or more today to help close this gap:

Obama - Biden --

We just got some alarming news: Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of October -- and as of last week, they had $X million more to spend than we do.

That's a problem.

Now, we have a strong ground game. But the fact is, we just don't know what an unmatched flood of money like this in the final days could do to a tight race.

I don't want to find out. Do you?

Obama - Biden --

We just learned that Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $X million more to spend than we do, as of last week. They brought in $X.8 million in just the first 17 days of October.

That doesn't even include the money outside groups are throwing into record ad buys in battleground states right now.

Think of what that kind of money can do right at the end, in a race as close as this.

Right now, each day, each dollar, is more critical than the last.

Donate $X or more today to close the gap.

We have two choices:

Watch the other side knock Barack Obama around with misleading ads and hope for the best. Or dig deeper every day, with just 11 days to go, and remember that our strength has always been in the number of people who support this president, not the number of super PACs and billionaires who can fund attack ads in Ohio.

If we can close the gap, our ground game will do the rest to take us over the top. But after a year and a half of building and fighting and getting ready for Election Day, we cannot allow ourselves to be outdone at the very end.

Please donate $X or more today to help close this gap:

Thanks, more soon.

Obama - Biden --

We just got some alarming news: Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of October -- and as of last week, they had $X million more to spend than we do.

That's a problem.

Now, we have a strong ground game. But the fact is, we just don't know what an unmatched flood of money like this in the final days could do to a tight race.

I don't want to find out. Do you?

Donate $X or more right now to make sure we can keep up with what the other side is throwing against us:
