We're seeking $3,000 to take Trump Rat to the White House and the United State Capitol Building for at leasts one working week — five day — as soon as possible. It will cost approximately $600 per day, including travel expenses (room and board along with vehicle rentals) to keep our crew of four going and keep the 16' rat out and inflated. That's $150 per person, per day, all-in for a team of 4 . If we go over this amount, we'll keep him going longer!
Your donations will allow crew members and Trump Rat to say in place, in the eye of the media, the public, activist communities, and the White House itself! The crew are all seasoned activists and artists, donating their time and effort to make this happen.
Moving and inflating Trump Rat takes effort. We will have to rent an SUV and procure accommodations in Washington, D.C., and plan to eventually hand off the project to local activists who can keep it in place until the election (and hopefully not any longer than that). Trump Rat has been showing up in New York City on its own dime, in a fun effort that always feels like a community service. We hope you will pitch in to help make this mission to the nation's capital happen!
The election is 60 days away. Trump is worse than ever, promising chaos, sowing fear, and spewing lies like the mobster and gutter rat every New Yorker already knows. Help take Trump Rat, designed by BravinLee Programs and a fixture at protests in New York City, to Washington D.C. for as long as it takes. Trump Rat visually underscores Trump's corruption. More importantly, Trump Rat is fun, always a favorite with passersby, creating a space for new friends and acquaintance to connect, have a laugh, blow off some steam, and come away energized for the fight ahead.
