Obama: Want an Inaugural Ticket? Donate Now!

Barack Obama famously used the internet to raise money for his campaign and he's been keeping up the tally for his inauguration, already raising more than $27 million. Today comes another email message asking for donations of at least $5 and dangling some incentive: Tickets to the inauguration, balls and parade. The email reads:

Just like we did on the campaign, we're relying entirely on supporters like you -- ordinary people giving whatever they can afford to make this an event for all Americans.

I know we've asked a lot of you. But changing the way business is done in Washington will take a commitment from all of us. Right now, you can help give this administration a strong start.

And if you make a donation of any amount before midnight tonight, you could be selected to come to Washington, D.C., and be part of the welcome ceremony, the swearing in, the Inaugural Parade, and the Inaugural Community Ball.

If you want to get in on the action, here's where to do it.
