Stop Trump, jump-start the future

$36,707 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 705 people in 7 months
Help the Yes Men  do their biggest (or at least most important) project ever! It's secret, but:

1. It'll build on the 2018 midterm elections, and provide a clear blueprint for a future we can all be excited about.
2. It'll put a smile on your face, and an ugly orange grimace on someone else’s.
3. No one has tried anything like this, at least not since that calamitous 2016 election. It's simple, it's bold, and... oops! we've said too much already!

We've got great support—including from a huge progressive organization with millions of members, who will help spread this widely when the time comes—but they (rightly!) spent their finances on the midterm elections, so we need to finish our budget to do this right.

For donations of $60 or higher, when the time comes we'll send you two secret items we can't talk about yet, but that will thrill you, and all of your friends or descendants, forever. Note that these items won't be available until the project happens!

[Only for donations through Jan. 16, 2019:]
For $100 or higher, we'll send you twenty secret items plus an awesome tote bag and a few other things that'll enable you to participate—wherever you are—in this top-secret project when the time comes. (We'll be going big with it in only one or two cities.)

Thank you!!


More about us, and about this project: The Yes Men are an activist group who for twenty years have used humor and, basically, clowning to reveal important political truths, and to direct media attention to corporate and political wrongdoings. Through our nonprofit incubator the Yes Lab (headquartered in New York City), we help organizations and individuals do the kind of creative activism that we've done. You can learn more about the Yes Lab here, more about our history as the Yes Men here, and more about a few past projects here (full list here).

This current project—our biggest!—is being created and executed in collaboration with Onnesha Roychoudhuri and L.A. Kauffman. All donations go to the Yes Lab, our 501(c)3 nonprofit, and will be put to exclusive use in developing and deploying what we feel sure will be our most important project to date.

Dear Friend,

Sorry for the delay on this.

As you probably know by now, your project was a SMASHING success. Check out this wonderful piece, for example: https://www.newyorker.com/news/our-columnists/the-fake-washington-post-and-the-future-americans-would-like-to-see
Or just google "fake washington post" for a whole evening's reading and viewing (it was on Rachel Maddow and elsewhere).

We're hugely grateful to each and every one of you, whatever amount you donated. It was only thanks to you that any of it could have worked, and while gratitude is in short supply in this world, we have TONS of it for you.

If you donated $60 or more, please let Keil@theyesmen.org (Keil at theyesmen.org) know and he'll expedite your rewards pronto. You can also use https://www.theyesmen.org/contact

And now let's do the work to ACTUALLY take our country back.

Onwards!
Andy and friends

Hey everyone! It's been a while since our last post - but now that we've all taken a step away from the abyss (PHEW!!), our team is now back into gear to make sure it's also a big step TO the future we all want and need.

We'll send out another update soon - meanwhile, here are some pictures from our GOTV in Delgado country last weekend.

We still have a bit of a budget shortfall, but with the urgency of the midterms over, we're feeling good about that.

Onwards to the future!
The team
