THE STORY:

ABOUT ME

My name is Shane Assadzandi, and I have been elected as a pledged delegate in support of Bernie Sanders at the 2016 Democratic National Convention. I am representing West Virginia's 1st Congressional District.

VERIFICATION: West Virginia Democratic Party 2016 National Delegates

At the Democratic National Convention, I will be a tireless advocate for not only Bernie’s candidacy, but for the issues, platforms, resolutions, and principles that have built his campaign and the Democratic Party.

There are some rather large expenses associated with being a delegate - including a week's worth of transportation, parking, housing, food, time away from work, etc. A trip to this convention costs a delegate several thousand dollars. Don't even get me started on how ridiculously hard we make it for our average citizens to participate in democracy. Anyway, in the spirit of Bernie's campaign I am hosting this fundraiser to gather small donations and offset the worst of these costs.

A contribution of any amount is greatly appreciated.  If I should have any excess funds available as a result of this fundraiser, I pledge to use them to support the other incredible Bernie delegates from West Virginia - there are 18 of us.

MY BERNIE JOURNEY

I became involved with Bernie’s campaign last July, nearly a year before the West Virginia primaries. As one of the founding members of Morgantown For Bernie Sanders 2016 and West Virginia For Bernie Sanders, our work in grassroots organizing helped me grow from a disenfranchised citizen to someone who believed in Bernie’s vision of a better and brighter future.

As a dedicated organizer on the grassroots levels of the Bernie campaign, I helped lead a team which:

•    Recruited and trained dozens of new volunteers
•    Phone banked to 10 states all across the country
•    Canvassed thousands of doors in West Virginia
•    Attended 3 campaign rallies in 2 different states
•    Hosteda 40-volunteer team at the Morgantown rally
•    Held 7 debate/primary watch parties
•    Operated the Morgantown campaign office on weekends

DONATION REWARDS (the good stuff!)

In addition to the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from sending a passionate, tireless freedom fighter straight into the heart of darkness and corruption, you will also receive:

Any amount up to $4.99 (Bronze) - a public "thank you" on my Facebook page (will tag you if I can)!

$5 to $9.99 (Silver) - a public "thank you" on my Facebook page, this ultra-super-cool "Shane for DNC Bernie Delgate" button, and a personalized thank-you letter.

$10.00 - $14.99 (Gold) - a public "thank you" on my Facebook page, the ultra-super-cool "Shane for DNC Bernie Delgate" button, a personalized thank-you letter, and 2 SURPRISE BERNIE BUTTONS!

$15.00 - $19.99 (Platinum) - a public "thank you" on my Facebook page, 2 ultra-super-cool "Shane for DNC Bernie Delgate" buttons, a personalized thank-you letter,  and 5 SURPRISE BERNIE BUTTONS!

$20+ (Diamond) - all of the Platinum level rewards, a great big hug, my undying love and appreciation, and some other really cool item that I truthfully haven't thought of yet, but it will be awesome!

Updates will soon be posted.

Thanks in advance! You rock.
