When the campaign started 45 days ago the single goal was to take the ‘Banned on the Hill’ campaign to Ottawa. We hit the ground running. Within 2 weeks, thanks to you, we were fully funded. Approximately $6,500 was spent purchasing outdoor posters and ad space, which ran from mid-May to June 23. The slew of media coverage from The Guardian UK, Toronto Star, Vancouver Observer,CTV, Ottawa Citizen, Grist Magazine and more — show that our investment was very worthwhile!
As of 3pm ET, we are 248% funded! The remaining $6,000 will be used to take the ‘Banned on the Hill’ campaign to other cities. (Halifax is confirmed thanks to Dalhousie’s purchase of my talk/workshop). Calgary, Vancouver and Washington are all looking promising.
