All Stars for Dean http://www.deanforamerica.com/site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=1090
Look, www.NJForDean.org is an All Star, and has raised over $600 for Dean. San Francisco for Dean, New Hampshire for Dean, Kansas City for Dean, and Spokane for Dean, all signed up today as All Stars for Dean.
Dean Nation was featured today at BlogForAmerica as Today's Featured Dean Team. They will be featuring other All Star sites. So if you are looking for some netroots activism, go down the sidebar for all of these websites, contact them (especially the ones nearby you), encourage them to sign-up to become an All Star, and set a 3rd Quarter fundraising goal for the group.
Together we've achieved $6,312.54 in contributions. There's still time to contribute today. For this webathon, we have doubled our total amount of funds raised for Howard Dean through Dean Nation. We will meet our goal of $10,000, but we've also shown that the All Star concept works, and other websites and Dean supporters can use this tool to raise funds for Dean.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
