President Obama announced Tuesday that he donated to his own campaign, a $5,000 contribution made online, according to a tweet from campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

In an email, the president urged supporters to follow his lead and donate before Tuesday’s midnight reporting deadline for the month of June.

“Yesterday, I made my first donation to support this campaign,” Obama writes. “On its own, what I gave won’t be enough to surmount the unprecedented fundraising we’ve seen on the other side, both from our opponent’s campaign and from the outside groups and special interests supporting him.”
