Santorum Campaign Using Fundly.com to Crowd-Source $-Raising

BY Micah L. Sifry | Monday, January 9 2012

As of now they have almost 2,600 people raising money through the site, and they've collectively brought in almost $240,000. That's a strong start; if Santorum continues to do well in the early states Fundly could be a critical factor in his campaign's online infrastructure.
