I hope you'll pay attention, facing a big FEC fundraising deadline -- after this, there's only one more before Election Day.

Here's why that matters: Your donation will go further now than it will next week. That's because it will immediately be put to use -- if your $X for example goes toward hiring an organizer in Akron, Ohio, she'll have more time to do her job and reach more voters. And that's how elections are won.

I hope you'll donate $X or more before the September fundraising deadline:

Thanks for everything you do.

If it seems like we've been sending you a lot of emails recently, you're not wrong.

We're lighting up your inbox these days for two good reasons:

2 There are only a few more hours left to enter for a chance to meet both President Obama and President Clinton out on the campaign trail:

We have 39 more days to re-elect Barack Obama as president of the United States.

If President Obama gets four more years to finish the job, it will be because of what you did at moments like this.

When you're running for re-election, every day in the final stretch is critical.

But President Obama is facing something I never did: a strategic, coordinated effort to take him down, one battleground state at a time, funded by outside groups with virtually unlimited money.

The biggest fundraising deadline of this campaign so far is in a few days.

Donate to support the campaign today -- you'll be automatically entered to fly out to meet President Obama and me on the trail next week.

Now, the Republican argument is: "We left a huge mess. The President hasn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in."

That just doesn't add up, and we both know it.

If we want President Obama to win this election, we can't take one day or one dollar for granted.

Donate $X or whatever you can before the big fundraising deadline, and you'll automatically be entered to join us on the trail next week:

Thanks, and maybe I'll see you soon.

Bill Clinton

P.S. -- In the end, an election comes down to simple arithmetic -- but the numbers will only be on our side on Election Night if we all chip in and do our part.

They want to cut taxes for high-income Americans while the middle class shoulders the burden.

They want to let Wall Street write its own rules again, and remove the financial regulations President Obama has put in place to prevent another crash.

They want to cut the budget in a radical way, decimating programs that help the middle class, poor children, and seniors, and those in science and technology that will create the good jobs of the future.

They want to turn Medicare into a risky voucher program that could actually raise costs for seniors by as much as $X per year.

This week, both campaigns -- Mitt Romney's and President Obama's -- face the biggest fundraising deadline yet.

If we want President Obama in that White House for another four years, we can't take anything for granted -- especially critical moments like this.

Donate $X or whatever you can today, and let's bring this home for President Obama. When you do, you'll automatically be entered to join the President and me on the campaign trail next week in California:

Obama - Biden Cherrine

If you thought the past year has been crazy, well, hold onto your hats, because you haven't seen chaos until you've experienced October during a presidential election.

This campaign is about to go into overdrive. Field organizers and volunteers will be working insane hours to make sure every person who can vote shows up at the polls. There'll be canvasses based out of coffee shops and volunteers sleeping on strangers' couches in every battleground state.

After this Sunday's critical fundraising deadline well, as my colleague Rufus likes to say, the soup's going to hit the fan.

It's going to be bananas but if and when we win on November 6th, it will have been worth it. Chip in $X or more right now to be a part of it all.

We're already working around the clock to make sure this campaign doesn't get away from us if you're anything like me, you're having dreams about electoral votes and FEC deadlines. This race is too close and the stakes are too high to sit back and take a breather.

If we want to keep up the momentum and finish with a win we need the resources to run this organization.

We're staring down a critical fundraising deadline this Sunday at midnight.

Will you chip in $X or more to help fund the campaign in the last month?

I'm excited. This is when it really gets fun.

Voters are already casting their ballots early in some states, and the first debate is next week.

In almost no time at all, this race will be over.

One of the very last fundraising deadlines is coming up on Sunday, and the resources we have by then will help decide how this race turns out. Barack can't do this alone -- to win, he needs supporters like you giving it your all.

Donate $X or more before that deadline so we're ready for the final days of this campaign:

[url]

Believe me, every time Barack hears someone tell him he's earned their vote, it makes his day. That doesn't get old. To hear that you're out there, lending your voice and getting others involved, means the world to us both.

The $X you give before the deadline is what makes this campaign possible.

Help grow this campaign in these last weeks, when it matters the most:

This election is in your hands.

Picture this: One week from now, you could find yourself in California, hanging out with my husband and President Clinton.

All you have to do is chip in $X or whatever you can to help this campaign before midnight tonight, and you'll automatically be entered to fly out and meet Barack and President Clinton on the trail.

As we approach Election Day, the days are getting busier and longer, and everything we're doing -- every phone call, every conversation, and every donation -- becomes so much more important.

In fact, folks in a number of states are already casting their ballots. That means voters are making their final decisions about Barack and how we want to move forward in the next four years.

It's an exciting -- and important -- time to be a part of this campaign.

Plus, I know two presidents who think you should really give it a shot.

All you have to do is make a donation of $X or whatever you can today, and your name will be automatically entered in the running:

And of course, your flight and hotel will be on us. Thank you for everything you do to help this campaign.

For many months, we've been building this campaign -- through door knocks and phone calls and donations.

And now it's all coming down to these final 39 days.

Unless we fight harder in these final weeks than we ever have before, we risk losing not only those months of work, but also everything we've built together over the past four years.

Sunday is the biggest fundraising deadline of this campaign so far. Chip in $X or more to make sure we have the resources we need for this final leg.

Your commitment to building this campaign the right way -- with grassroots donations and old-fashioned hard work -- is how we're going to win this thing.

It won't happen without you.

Can you chip in $X or more today before the most important deadline we've faced to help support our neighbor-to-neighbor outreach in the homestretch?

I can't thank you enough for your support.

If President Obama gets four more years to finish the job, it will be because of what you did at moments like this.

When you're running for re-election, every day in the final stretch is critical.

But President Obama is facing something I never did: a strategic, coordinated effort to take him down, one battleground state at a time, funded by outside groups with virtually unlimited money.

The biggest fundraising deadline of this campaign so far is in a few days.

Donate to support the campaign today -- you'll be automatically entered to fly out to meet President Obama and me on the trail next week.

Now, the Republican argument is: "We left a huge mess. The President hasn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in."

That just doesn't add up, and we both know it.

If we want President Obama to win this election, we can't take one day or one dollar for granted.

Donate $X or whatever you can before the big fundraising deadline, and you'll automatically be entered to join us on the trail next week:

Thanks, and maybe I'll see you soon.

Bill Clinton

P.S. -- In the end, an election comes down to simple arithmetic -- but the numbers will only be on our side on Election Night if we all chip in and do our part.

They want to cut taxes for high-income Americans while the middle class shoulders the burden.

They want to let Wall Street write its own rules again, and remove the financial regulations President Obama has put in place to prevent another crash.

They want to cut the budget in a radical way, decimating programs that help the middle class, poor children, and seniors, and those in science and technology that will create the good jobs of the future.

They want to turn Medicare into a risky voucher program that could actually raise costs for seniors by as much as $X per year.

This week, both campaigns -- Mitt Romney's and President Obama's -- face the biggest fundraising deadline yet.

If we want President Obama in that White House for another four years, we can't take anything for granted -- especially critical moments like this.

Donate $X or whatever you can today, and let's bring this home for President Obama. When you do, you'll automatically be entered to join the President and me on the campaign trail next week in California:

Obama - Biden Cherrine

If you thought the past year has been crazy, well, hold onto your hats, because you haven't seen chaos until you've experienced October during a presidential election.

This campaign is about to go into overdrive. Field organizers and volunteers will be working insane hours to make sure every person who can vote shows up at the polls. There'll be canvasses based out of coffee shops and volunteers sleeping on strangers' couches in every battleground state.

After this Sunday's critical fundraising deadline well, as my colleague Rufus likes to say, the soup's going to hit the fan.

It's going to be bananas but if and when we win on November 6th, it will have been worth it. Chip in $X or more right now to be a part of it all.

We're already working around the clock to make sure this campaign doesn't get away from us if you're anything like me, you're having dreams about electoral votes and FEC deadlines. This race is too close and the stakes are too high to sit back and take a breather.

If we want to keep up the momentum and finish with a win we need the resources to run this organization.

We're staring down a critical fundraising deadline this Sunday at midnight.

Will you chip in $X or more to help fund the campaign in the last month?

I'm excited. This is when it really gets fun.

Voters are already casting their ballots early in some states, and the first debate is next week.

In almost no time at all, this race will be over.

One of the very last fundraising deadlines is coming up on Sunday, and the resources we have by then will help decide how this race turns out. Barack can't do this alone -- to win, he needs supporters like you giving it your all.

Donate $X or more before that deadline so we're ready for the final days of this campaign:

[url]

Believe me, every time Barack hears someone tell him he's earned their vote, it makes his day. That doesn't get old. To hear that you're out there, lending your voice and getting others involved, means the world to us both.

The $X you give before the deadline is what makes this campaign possible.

Help grow this campaign in these last weeks, when it matters the most:

Plus, I know two presidents who think you should really give it a shot.
