Dana Givens – Ever since it was announced that Kamala Harris would be Joe Biden’s running mate for vice president ahead of the November presidential election, members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. have been rallying behind the senator who joined the organization during her time at Howard University as an undergraduate. Now, members have been actively donating $19.08 to the Biden-Harris campaign.
The donations started earlier when the California senator was campaigning to be the Democratic presidential nominee and then dropped out, later joining the Biden campaign as his running mate. Since that announcement, members have continued to send donations with the exact number amount that represents the year the sorority was founded on Howard University’s campus.
“I’ve never seen people give in such a specific increment ever before,” said Clayton Cox, finance director for the Democratic National Committee to Roll Call. “The week after she was announced, I was getting one every 15 minutes,” says Cox. “It was that frequent.” Cox went on to say that the donations from all Divine Nine Greek organizations have been growing by the day.
“I still get notifications about $19.08 donations,” he added. “Every day, several times a day.”
