Up in Arms

$1,010 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 42 people in 5 months
THE STATE OF THE ARMS PT 2


Hey guys. Even weirder update. It’s been a really crazy day.


To remain in line with GoFundMe's terms, the stated goal of this campaign WILL NOT change.  All funds from this will go to getting this billboard up in Minneapolis...


And now they have.


HERE'S THE WHERE:


Where:
E Hennepin Ave and SE 9th St/Harrison St NE

Coordinates are roughly; 44°59'28.7"N 93°14'47.0"W



When:
They said it will hopefully go up tomorrow. TOMORROW. I’ll be sure to update if that changes.


It will run for a minimum of 3 weeks. Which means you have until April 8th to see it.

(the good news is there are a couple good restaurants and a brewery nearby so you can don’t just have to slog out to see it.)


The Bonus?


Kris will now donate $1250 to People Serving People.


TLDR: Not only did you all help me put this billboard up, but we had Kris donate $1250 to charity in it's honor. A true win-win.


I know this has been a crazy story. And there’s a lot more details I’ll fill in on later, but for now


THANK YOU ALL. FIND IT. TAKE PICS IN FRONT OF IT. #BeTheArmsYouWantToSee

The State of the Arms


Hey guys, weird update.

Kris got in touch with me... And he’s into the billboard. So much so, he’s gonna donate a billboard to me…  under one condition: I donate the money I raised to charity.

So here’s what’s gonna happen. This GoFundMe and all proceeds from it will now be going to People Serving People. They’re an awesome organization that helps homeless families find housing. It’s a great cause and a great way to get people who really need houses get into them.

This is honestly a win-win. We get the billboard and the money goes to a good cause. It's been so awesome seeing how generous people have been. Let’s try and raise more!

So, I’m letting the GoFundMe run until the billboard is taken down. At that point I will withdraw and make the donation. You have until then to donate more!

If you’re not on board with this anymore, you can contact GoFundMe to get a refund.

If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to let me know.

I'll update you guys once I know more about the when and the where.

Thank you all!


Derek

Together we will construct a billboard more dumber than any dumb billboard to ever exist before it. Why? I think we both know why. 

I'm asking for your help, in any way you can, to fund it. Five bucks. A thousand dollars. Ten dollars. Anything you can to help.

Because I'm broke. And apparently 22 foot long jokes cost a lot of money.

My guaranteed offer: A billboard that will look like this:

37420540_1551645060488628_r.jpegHelp me do this and my arms will be the most awe-inspiring arms to ever grace a billboard in Minneapolis.  And you'll get to say; "I helped make that billboard where the guy had his arms stretched out... No not that one. The other one. The one where it was just about his arms. I don't know. I bet he was pissed though. He's gotta be pretty narcissistic if he's throwing his face onto every billboard he can."

Together, we can be the arms we want to see in the world.

Thank you.
