Momentum building for Bernie’s birthday moneybomb

Activists across the country are organizing to raise small campaign contributions of $8 on Senator Bernie Sanders’ birthday on September 8.

Sanders will be turning 74 on September 8, and his supporters across the United States are pledging to donate $8 to his campaign to mark the occasion.

The moneybomb is being organised by the Grassroots for Sanders group, which is to thank for the Sanders’ large following on social networking site Reddit, which has proven to be pivotal in organizing efforts for the campaign so far.

A similar moneybomb was organised on July 15th, aiming to raise $15 contributions in support of a $15 an hour minimum wage. That fundraising effort raised $62,000 for the campaign.
