Billboard projects

Bitter and Sebastian have posts up about some anti-gun billboards that just went up. Oh, and the anti-gun group gets the space for free.

I offered my (failed) billboard project as a starting point for an alternative billboard but if anyone else has ideas send them to Bitter.

Tonight I’ll probably spend some time composing a letter to try and shame the bigots at the billboard company into reconsidering their support of this anti-rights group. Sebastian has the contact information if you want to do the same.

  1. To Dan: Thanks so much for your interest in the Public Service program at Clear Channel Outdoor. This program is for 50l(c)3 non-profit organizations, and
    limited to messages that are not of a controversial nature.

    I have attached some information sheets regarding our Public Service program.

    Please let me know when you’d like to begin a campaign, and I will be happy to check space availability for you. Please also send me a copy of your proposed artwork.

    Many thanks – please call me anytime with questions.

    User’s Location: Oceanside, CA, USA

    Regarding: Advertising Product or Rate Inquiry
    Message: I have a message that I’d like to share with society. It’s one that I think we could all benefit from. It’s that guns are ok. They help save lives and protect the good guys from the bad guys. I believe this is a public service announcement. Can I get thirty free billboard spaces for 30 days each to spread this message? Maybe you can give them to a bigger name than just me…the NRA.
