It's time to send a clear message to Islanders owners Jon Ledecky and Scott Malkin. Fans will no longer tolerate the culture of losing surrounding this franchise. Help us send a message and tell ownership that "SNOW MUST GO" on a poster board within a half mile of the Barclays Center.

The board will cost $2,500 for four weeks, with an additional $225 material/printing charge from the company. With enough support quickly, this can be finalized and posted by 2/26.

This GoFundMe is run by Islanders fans. Once withdrawn, funds will go to Lamar NYC (billboard company), and the remaining money will go to the American Cancer Society.

James Duffy, a vocal Islanders fan, will be handling the funds, and has agreed to a contract with Lamar NYC. James can be reached with any questions on Twitter, @TwoTurtleDuffs. The two billboards will cost $5,450, which has been compeltely covered by donations, and leftover funds after payment will be sent to the American Cancer Society. Money will be transfered to Lamar from James' bank account after withdrawl from GoFundMe, and sent over Lamar's secure payment site. Reciepts will be posted throughout the process.

10:55 AM, Feb 15: Hello! So we shot through our second goal again by 10 A.M. this morning, and I've finalized our second billboard location. We had hoped for one close to Northwell, or a prominent LI spot, but there are less viable options in that area. Since options on Long Island are extremely limited, we've picked a sign on Atlantic Avenue, less than a mile from the Barclays Center.

We had also heard suggestions of a billboard regarding John Tavares, but decided to stay to the original goal that we began this campaign with. It is important to us that as fans, we continue to support the players on the ice and as such, opt not to use any players’ namesakes on any signage as it relates to any potential legal liability.

Secondly, we recently received word via Twitter that Anders Lee will be declining any donation toward his Kancer Jam. While we are disappointed, we respect his decision, and love Anders as a New York Islander.

Without a choice in the matter, we have therefore decided to donate any excess donations to the American Cancer Society. While we understand this was not the initial advertised charity, we hope Islanders fans will understand.

We have been receiving word from people asking for us to donate to a different cause, or for a different purpose.
At this point, we should explain that people donated for a particular purpose and we do not feel right changing that purpose after receiving their donations. If anyone still wishes to donate, please consider donating to Lee's Kancer Jam or another charitable cause.

Thank you for the support, as mentioned previously any donations that exceeded our goal will go toward charity, that now being the American Cancer Society. Anyone who would like a refund that donated after 9:25 AM can contact snowmustgo2018@gmail.com and we will work with you and gofundme to get a refund. Please note, we make no representations as to our ability to get a refund or the success of any such attempt.

Thank you for the support!

11:05 PM, Feb. 14: Hey guys we reached our goal congrats to everyone involved! Since money is still coming, I've decided to post an update as we finalize our plans moving forward.

Our goal is to raise enough for a second billboard, and any excess donations will be redirected to Anders Lee's Kancer Jam. Once I have a finalized quote on a second billboard, I'll update the goal. This updated amount is currently an estimate that will be adjusted once a quote is given.

By making any further donation over the updated goal value you understand and agree that the SnowMustGo campaign, as well as its founders and donors shall have no liability for any personal, or business, tax deductions or assessments. You further release the campaign, and its founders and donors from any liability of any kind relating to your donation.


We appreciate your support!
