Obama's $750 Million

User Rating: / 1


Right after the Presidential Elections, I read online that the bulk of President Obama's fundraising  campaign amount of $750Million came from millions of grassroot donors who gave $5, $10 and $100. It kinda put into perspective that maybe the $39 I earned in Contributions at 8BillionBUYERS was no paltry sum.

Recently, I logged into 8BillionBUYERS, (Gawd, it was so easy!) chose my fav animal charity, went to Priceline and bought air and cruise tickets.The best part was, I'm now officially an 8BillionBUYERS "Philanthropist"!! LOL! You know how most of us think we have to be 'Gazillionaires' to make an impact or to be known as a Philanthropist? Soooo not true! OK, so I 'm a bona fide Philanthropist now (HA!) and it feels GGGREAT!! My Contributions - by itself not enough to impact any Cause but hey - if Obama can raise $750 Million during his Presidential campaign (for politics, mind you - not for charity!) from millions of donors - many of whom gave $5, $10, $100 then we're headed in the right direction!

BTW, I didn't take ANY extra money out of my own pocket, my family and I already planned on taking our vacation and buying cheap  travel tickets online  - all it took was seconds to register at 8BillionBUYERS, it was FREE and it felt like found money that I just directed to do something good for someone else, ya know?

"It doesn’t show up on the stat sheet," recalled Carolina wide receivers coach Lance Taylor, McCaffrey’s position coach the past three seasons at Stanford. Star Lotulelei Jerseys "It doesn’t show up on any highlights or anything because it was called back. "But it was just an unbelievable, freak-of-nature return." You’ve heard about the "wow" factor McCaffrey has brought to the Carolina Panthers' offense as a running back, slot receiver and wide receiver.

You’ve heard how the eighth pick of the draft has juked out middle linebacker Luke Kuechly and others to the point running back Jonathan Stewart said nobody in the NFL will be able to stop McCaffrey one-on-one. Cam Newton Jerseys Well, oh by the way, McCaffrey is just as dangerous on special teams. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound dynamo didn’t return a punt or a kickoff in Carolina’s preseason opener against Houston. There are no guarantees he will in Saturday’s preseason game at Tennessee. There’s no real reason to risk injury. Greg Olsen Jerseys But McCaffrey is listed first on the depth chart at punt returner and as a backup as a kickoff returner. You can bet he’ll be a weapon when the regular season starts.

"He's a home run hitter when it comes to the return game," Taylor said. "He's special, just like all the other phases that we’ve seen him working." The Kansas State return that didn’t count magnifies that. Jonathan Stewart Jerseys Taylor recommended Jim Skipper take a look at it before the draft, when the running backs coach asked for a few examples of what McCaffrey could do. "Ten minutes later, Coach Skipper came back in and he was like, 'Hey, man! This guy is pretty special,'" Taylor recalled. The Panthers arguably haven’t had a punt-return specialist this special since Steve Smith in his first three seasons (2001-2003). Smith returned four punts for touchdowns during that span, two coming in 2002.

There have been only four other punts returned for touchdowns in team history, all by different players. Kelvin Benjamin Jerseys This isn’t to suggest McCaffrey will be returning punts for touchdowns like Devin Hester, who holds the NFL record with 14. McCaffrey had only one punt return for a touchdown at Stanford, a 63-yarder in the 2016 Rose Bowl against Iowa. He had only one kickoff return for a touchdown, a 98-yarder against California in 2015.
