CROWDFUNDER UPDATE (13 February 2017)
We are now entering the final stages of the billboard campaign. We have a launch date which is very soon – we would love to tell you but need to keep it under wraps for maximum impact!
The important thing is that launch date falls within a critical window of parliamentary influence for the House of Lords – meaning we will get our message straight to the heart of government.
A huge thank you to all our supporters – none of this would have been possible without each one of you!
A quick look at the weeks ahead
As our countdown for launch begins, we will be:
• Sending final billboard artwork to press
• Developing adaptation artwork for local groups across the UK
• Confirming planning discussions with remain groups
• Finalising the launch plan with PR stunts and activity
• Developing press materials
• Editing our launch video
• Planning our digital strategy
We will keep you posted and let you know how you to get involved closer to launch date.
Campaign info : Concerned about Brexit? Think the Government isn't listening to legitimate concerns? Angry that your voice is being silenced? This crowdfund is for a targeted nationwide advertising and poster campaign to send a clear message to Theresa May – we did not vote to lose our rights and our prosperity. We did not vote to destroy our economy with tariffs and WTO rules. We did not vote to use the NHS as a bargaining chip in trade negotiations with the US!
We've got over £60K pledges in just over a week. It's impressive, but it also shows the level of anger, even despair, felt by ordinary people at the Government's harshest of harsh Brexits.
Our concerns about the future of the country are being silenced – our billboard crowdfunder will taking your anger out of the closed spaces of homes, pubs and internet groups and into the spotlight on the streets of the United Kingdom.
May's red white and blue Brexit is turning to brutal Brexit.
SECOND STRETCH TARGET - can you help us get there?
Since we launched this Crowdfunder five days ago, we've smashed two funding targets and pledges are still coming in fast.
As it’s not slowing down, we’ve gone for a new stretch target of £75K. This week we will look at how much more that extra money will buy us… more billboards, maybe bus advertising, ads in the press?
From the many messages of support we’ve received, this campaign has given hope to the silenced – the millions of us that have been cut out of the national debate. It is starting to give us back our voice.
And if so many of you believe in the campaign, then how many more people will those billboards speak to when they go up?
We are working hard to promote this fundraise via social media, but we need the help of the ‘48’ to reach £75K. If you have pledged then we thank you – can you spread the word?
FIRST STRETCH TARGET - SMASHED!
It's clear that many of us want the UK to hear our voice.
We’ve smashed our £25K target in under 12 hours - thanks to every single one of you.
We have hit a real nerve with this idea (looks like a lot of us are tired of not being heard!) and we’ve decided to set our stretch target at £75,000. With your help, we can get there.
The more funds we have, the more loudly we can shout – and the more people won’t be able to ignore us.
If you haven’t pledged yet, then please do and encourage your friends to pledge and share."
