What's the most effective way to donate to Obama this late in the game?

Let's say it's a week from election day, and you've got, I dunno, $100 to donate to aid President Obama's re-election. Where will your cash do the most good, and how do you get it there? (I've seen this question
about down-ballot races; but I'm specifically interested in the Big One.) I know donating to the Dem party machine is the best default option, but I'm talking about the equivalent of buying a hobo an Egg McMuffin: I want to know exactly where my donation goes. So please tell me about a grassroots group in Ohio that's raising Kickstarter funds to rent vans to take seniors to the polls, or Floridians mobilizing to counter True the Vote thugs -- that kind of thing. I want to know my money is making a difference, not paying off the bill for a balloon drop.
