US President Barack Obama has the perfect gift suggestion for couples getting married, they can donate their wedding gift money to his re-election campaign.
Yep, in a brilliantly clever twist in America’s next election, Obama has set up a gift registry that will allow his supporters to ask friends and family to donate money to his cause in lieu of gifts.
Though some would say it’s a tad self-serving, it’s actually a very clever way to boost his election campaign fund, and an out-of-the-box approach to political donations, one we’re sure will be borrowed by political campaigners in future elections across the globe.
“Got a special milestone or event coming up?” reads the Obama Event Registry website. “Instead of another giftcard you’ll forget to use, ask your friends and family for something that will go a little further: a donation to Obama for America. Register your next celebration—whether it’s a birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, wedding, or anniversary—with the Obama campaign.
“It’s a great way to show your support for a cause that’s important to you on your big day.”
Indeed, though, frankly, I’d prefer a honeymoon!
