  • Depends. As citizens we can contribute up to a certain amount for any campaign we want.

    Large groups can't contribute over a certain amount of money, so many times what they will do is do their own fundraising, and they will make commercials to support the candidate of their collective choice (like the unions spending millions on campaigning against McCain and in favor of Obama, because Obama is big on Union special interests and wants to concede many gifts to them, for no other reason but for their support of his candidacy).

  • How? Go to their campaign website. Why? Because most political campaigns are a grass roots movement and they need funds to stay competitive. If you want your candidate to win, put your money where your mouth is...or your time :) Donations can be small, they don't have to be large to make a difference.

  • Most contribute to groups whose cause they believe in. I get emails all teh time but I only donate to a couple because thats what I also am passionate about. If there is something youare passionate about(canser, animals etc) just google it and you will get boo coos of places you can find more info about or donate to.
