Bernie Sanders Mural Bronx, NY
Hello everyone. The goal is to have the wall is finished this week. We are fully aware that the primary is on the 19th. This has all come about in less than a week, which is pretty amazing. I have been working on this pretty much non-stop to help make it happen. As mentioned, the majority of the cost go to the cost of the supplies, material, and equipment needed to produce the wall, since equipment rental is not free. We also make sure those on site have food and water and are happy/healthy. By all means, if you have connections to lifts, scaffolding, sprayers, labor for setup, onsite work, and cleanup crews, etc., we'd love to meet them and reduce the cost for future endeavors. Giving your $ to the Bernie campaign is awesome and we encourage you to do so, as we do, but giving to his campaign won't make walls like this happen that reach tens of thousands of viewers because that is not what his campaign does. It is focused on other priorities and things like this happen to quickly and spontaneously for the campaign to be able to be involved. Simply, this isn't their focus but they like that it is happening. This entire campaign is about people making things happen in the ways that they can, which is what we are doing. There are many ways to support Bernie, and this is just one of them. We encourage your support if you feel so moved but mostly we encourage you to give to Bernie's campaign in whatever way you best see fit, whether that is through our endeavor and/or any others. #feelthebern and thank you!
Hey guys, if you haven't started yet, then we have a problem. Because I have done the math: at the current rate of donation (including mine obviously) we will not get to 6500 before the primary. So if you haven't started yet then it's time to think outside of the box here. That mural has to go up NOW in order for it to make a difference to anything. Is there a way that the missing funds can be made up with, say, a loan that is repaid as soon as the funding drive concludes?
Thanks very much for all your hard work in getting the mural finished on time. I am not even American but the fact is that Bernie's message is exactly what the whole world needs at this point in time, so major props to you in being instrumental in this struggle.
Feel free to use the following mockup too if you want guys: https://twitter.com/nicomen/status/719611685926014976
