Thousands of supporters are using new technology to give President Obama and Democrats across the country the resources they need to win on Election Day -- and you should join them.

It's called Quick Donate, and here's how it works: You donate just $X or more today, then save your payment information to your account. You'll be able to support Democrats with single-click donations from emails.

Will you give it a try? When you sign up, you'll also get a free bumper sticker.

We rolled this out for a reason.

Over the last few months, Mitt Romney and the Republican Party have raised nearly $X million more than us -- and it's critically important we do everything we can to close that fundraising gap.

Our ability to help Democrats in tough races will be driven by grassroots donations -- millions of Americans giving what they can, when they can.

And if we're going to compete with the groups on the other side that are pumping millions into negative ads, we need it to be as easy as possible for anyone to chip in and help decide the outcome of this election.

So join thousands of other Democrats and join our Quick Donate program.
