Quote2008-12-10 Update: WE DID IT! The most recent donation put us not only over our goal, but over $2000! We can't thank you all enough, and look forward to posting news on our progress after our next business meeting. All excess dollars will go toward future billboard campaigns. For the immediate future, we will continue to accept donations.
QuoteHi All,Metroplex Atheists and the Dallas-Plano Atheist Meetup Group are combining with the national group Coalition of Reason to bring their billboard campaign to D/FW. The campaign will start in January 2009. The following link will show what it looked like in Philadelphia: http://willdo.pwblogs.com/2008/05/05/ph ... billboard/.This billboard message challenges the accepted social status quo without coming across as deliberately offensive. It has a message of inclusiveness ("You are not alone.") vs. the divisiveness of religion.We need to raise $1,750 to purchase a one-month placement in a high-traffic area, such as I-35 (Stemmons Freeway) or US75 (Central Expressway) in Dallas. This is one-half the cost of the ad purchase. The other half, plus the cost of producing the vinyl billboard, is being paid for by Coalition of Reason. Any excess funds raised will be used to fund additional ad placements, the next one possibly in Fort Worth.TAX-DEDUCTIBLE contributions can be made via PayPal or a credit card by visiting the Metroplex Atheists web site at http://www.MetroplexAtheists.org. Just scroll to the bottom of any page, click on "Donate", and then select the billboard campaign. Metroplex Atheists is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. There are many reasons for this campaign, not the least of which is to let others know that there are atheist organizations all over the D/FW Metroplex and to point people who inquire to the organization which most appeals to them. Many thanks go to our members Stephen and Dee, who started this project, and to Terry McDonald, President of Metroplex Atheists, who will be the public contact for it.
