Madeleina Kay (EU Supergirl) has been working with her father, Barry Pierce and Luke Lythgoe from InFactsOrg to turn her "24 Reasons to Remain Poster" into a factual information booklet for use by #StopBrexit campaigners. We are hoping to have the booklet published and printed in early September, ready for the crucial period of campaigning for a People's Vote on the Brexit Deal during the Autumn. The more money we raise, the more booklets can be printed and distributed to the Pro EU grassroots network in the UK.
24 Reasons to Remain
Madeleina's "24 Reasons to Remain" graphic began life originally as an advent calendar project, aiming to celebrate the benefits of EU membership and highlight the costs of Brexit. The illustrations, originally created in December 2016, and combined to create a poster which has since been widely used and distributed by the anti-Brexit grassroots network in the UK. Many people in the UK are unaware of how Brexit will impact their daily lives and the '24 Reasons to Remain' poster was designed to simply, and effectively communicate what British citizens are set to lose if we leave the EU. The graphic has been used for A5 leaflets on multiple occasions and tens of thousands of copies have been distributed to the British public. It has also been printed as A1, A2, A3 and A4 posters, postcards, illustration booklets, and badges, which have been distributed across the UK and several EU countries. The graphics are also widely disseminated on digital platforms and social media.
Madeleina's father, Barry Pierce (an academic at the University of Sheffield) has been working with Luke Lythgoe from InFacts to source the information behind each of the illustrations, to make the facts based case to #StopBrexit. The booklet will be formatted as a 56 page A5 document presenting Madeleina's illustration alongside information sourced from; House of Commons/Lords reports, BBC, Channel 4, European and international governmental bodies, UK political parties, Commercial media, NGOs & Quangos and Industry bodies & organisations.
24 Reasons... Revamped
The original list of "24 Reasons" has been revised and revamped to comprehensively cover the key areas and issues affected by Brexit... Leading to the natural conclusion of the case for a People's Vote on the Brexit Deal.
Printing and Distributing
The booklets will be self-published under Madeleina's "albawhitewolf" brand, and we need to crowdfund the money to distribute the booklets to the grassroots #StopBrexit campaign network. We are hoping to have the booklets completed, and printed in time to launch at the Great Northern #StopBrexit Conference in Leeds on 8th September, where Madeleina will be speaking.
You can pledge for signed copies of the booklets as a reward, but the main purposes of this crowdfunder is to print copies for free distribution by Remain campaigners.
Donations to the project will go towards distributing copies to the grassroots network.
We will also be doing another print run of the revamped A4 'Reasons to Remain' posters with the revised illustrations, which you can also pledge for as a reward.
We are still researching the best quotes, but the greater the quantity we order, the lower the unit price. So the more you can help us raise, the greater the impact of the publication.
Roughly if we raise*:
£1800 we can print and distribute 5000 copies
£2500 we can print and distribute 7500 copies
£3000 we can print and distribute 10000 copies
£4,500 we can print and distribute 15000 copies
*Estimates will be revised as we find better quotes
Campaigning for a People's Vote
The booklet will be a crucial piece of literature to help grassroots campaigners make the facts based case to Remain in the EU. The engaging and emotive illustrations, combined with the evidence and factual information make a solid and persuasive argument for people to rethink their vote to leave the EU. But we need your support to help us print and distribute the publication so that after we have achieved a People's Vote on the Brexit deal - we can persuade the British people to change their vote!
