Help FFAC get better ads on BART! »
FFAC needs our help again! Now they’ve won another $50,000 of free advertising on BART, they need fresh new ads! They’ve got an Indiegogo campaign up now to raise money to pay for professional graphic design. They’re looking to raise $2,000.
High-quality design will give our ads maximum visual punch and allow us to relay our message clearly and effectively.
Any additional money raised will go towards our educational outreach program, to train more presenters and reach out to new audiences.
Want to see super-slick pro-animal rights ads on BART? Throw a few bucks FFAC’s way. The Indiegogo campaign is open through July 15, and they aren’t quite halfway yet.
ugh is this quid pro quo? http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/factory-farming-ads
