In every four-year term there is a chosen one. He alone will face the American public, the United Nations, and the forces of darkness. He is the President.

Join us and the Kerry/Edwards campaign at one of the High Stakes parties, or host one of your own. You’ll participate in a nationwide conference call to hear Joss Whedon tell us more about his latest endeavors and why he is supporting John Kerry and John Edwards. The "Sitch"

When: Sunday, October 24, 2004, time TBA

Where: At parties nationwide.

To host a party in your area go to the JohnKerry.com website and register your party. Be sure to put "High Stakes" in the title of your party.

To find a party near you, go to the John Kerry website, enter your Zip Code, and look for parties with "High Stakes" in the title.

What: This is an official fundraiser for the Kerry/Edwards campaign. Minimum donation is $35.00. Hosts may choose higher minimum donations.

Questions: contact mailto:questions@highstakes2004.com.

This page is your resource for up-to-date information about the High Stakes parties. This site will be updated regularly with the latest news. Please check back for further details. What do party hosts do?

"I’m gonna give you all a nice, fun, normal evening if I have to kill every person on the face of the Earth to do it."

Buffy, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Well ok, please don’t go that far. You can sign up on the Kerry website to do a private party, only open to invited friends, or you can open up your party to any Whedon fans in your area, meet new people, and talk about exciting new aspects of the shows. Many parties are choosing to show select episodes from Buffy, Angel, and Firefly. Others are simply getting together to spend time with friends old and new. Parties can be as lavish or simple as you can afford, whether you choose to do a gathering, a shindig, or a hootenanny. We strongly encourage people to host a party. The more hosts we get, the more people will come, and all donations will be going directly to the Kerry campaign to help out in these crucial final weeks of the election. The Picky Details

Party hosts will be contacted with the dial-up number and time of the conference call when it is established. A speaker phone is required so everyone can hear the call.

Joss has agreed to answer questions, with a goal of answering one question from each party if possible. Continue to check here for details on how to submit questions.

Hosts should also sign in everyone at the party, and get either a copy of their donation receipt from the web, or collect donations at the party.

Remember, the minimum amount to attend is $35. Larger donations are encouraged. You may only accept checks or credit cards.

Forms and instructions for the donations are available at http://www.johnkerry.com/fundraising/kit.html, and be sure to include a note that they are from a High Stakes party. What else can people do for this?

"I’m not comfortable asking people for money."

"Then get over it. I mean that in a sensitive way."

Angel and Cordelia, from Angel
