Donations & Contributions



You may contribute to the campaign in many ways. We’ve made it easy, though there are some legal and ethical obligations that help frame this.

Donations

Running a campaign is surprisingly expensive, as anyone who has run any orgnaisation knows . We have insurances, energy, mobile and internet costs. Printing and signage costs are considerable, though the biggest cost by far is advertising and publicity. This is where the big parties use their power to gather donations from corporations such as banks, tobacco, pharmaceutical, petroleum and coal companies. Worse still they receive donations from foreign companies.

All donations go toward direct costs of the campaign and be assured that no donations go to personal, legal or political registration costs of the candidate or his family.
