Let's Help a Muslim!
I'm thinking of something a bit outrageous to get us more attention.
It'll trigger some people and some might think it's offensive or disrespectful but it could help the campaign become more noticeable and increase search engine hits.
It came to me when I emailed a local newspaper (The Reporter) because I thought it might encourage them more to do an article on this.
And it's a bit of an in-your-face comment to those who are adding to the current wave of anti-Muslim sentiment.
The idea is to change the campaign name/headline to:
Forgive me, given the current tenor of things, I think it's hilarious and, if it takes off and goes viral, who knows, it could become an annual thing.
I do believe it could be media attention grabbing.
As a personally involved Muslim, what is your reaction to this?
And don't worry if you hate it or think it's awful. I'm asking for your honest opinion.
We're getting close! Ebrima has his passport and official medical report. Now we're just waiting on the doctor at Eye Associates to schedule the dates to apply for the visa and purchase the airline ticket! For documentation, see www.mark-landau.com/edocs.htm.
This is what Bruce MacLaren emailed me: "I like the Adopt-a-Muslim idea. It seems to me it can only help. “Adopt” is a powerful word for me. I like being able to ‘adopt’ even at our age." So definitely mixed feelings as I thought there would be. Thank you for your opinions. Any more?
Thank you, Alice! That's one vote for (see latest update)
