Billboard Campaign Minimize

Donate to the Metroplex Atheists 2012 Ad Campaign Fund for the DFW Coalition of Reason!

Donate to Metroplex Atheists - Billboard Campaign

_______________________________________________________________

Metroplex Atheists and the Dallas-Plano Atheist Meetup Group have combined with the national Coalition of Reason to bring their billboard campaign to D/FW. The campaign has started! See the actual photo below.

This billboard message challenges the accepted social status quo without coming across as deliberately offensive. It has a message of inclusiveness ("You are not alone.") vs. the divisiveness of religion.

We've raised enough already for two billboards, and we'd like to put up more!

You can make a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation right here, right now. Just click the button at the top of the page. The transaction is secure and private. We respect your privacy and your name will be known only to the chairman, webmaster, and treasurer of Metroplex Atheists.

There are many reasons for this campaign, not the least of which is to let others know that there are atheist organizations all over the D/FW Metroplex and to point people who inquire to the organization which most appeals to them. Thank you for donating!

    






Billboard News Minimize

Update From Terry - Did You Catch Him On TV? - Sunday, March 29, 2009

The amount of publicity Metroplex Atheists, the Dallas-Plano Atheist Meetup Group, and the other groups that belong to the Dallas-Fort Worth Coalition of Reason have received in the past few days is incredible. AND... the billboards have not even gone up yet.

Reporters have asked if we are going to extend the billboards past the four weeks that have been paid for or if we are going to have another billboard campaign later. It's up to the members of the organizations that belong to the Coalition. Can we raise enough money to make a bigger impact than we already have? We'll see!

 
Official Update from the Metroplex Atheists Chairman - Thursday, February 19, 2009

The good news is that we have agreed to work with the new national organization, United Coalition of Reason, to put up not one, but two billboards in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, one in Dallas and one in Fort Worth.

We will receive full support in maximizing our exposure with the two billboards, including substantial monetary contributions, support for a website, an 800 number, help with local and national public relations, and spots on local radio. Radio spots have not been used in connection with an atheist billboard before so we will be the first. It's a package that will give us the most "bang for the buck" and will allow us to highly leverage the generous donations given by those who want to see an atheist billboard become a reality.

The bad news is that the billboards will not be up until April. Between now and then the national organization will complete its preparations and we can work to include other local non-theist organizations, in addition to the Dallas-Plano Atheist Meetup Group and Metroplex Atheists, in the new Dallas/Fort Worth Coalition of Reason or DFWCoR.

Contributors to this campaign can be very proud, not only are they going to put up the first atheist billboards in Dallas and Fort Worth, they are also going to positively affect the entire metroplex non-theist community for years to come.

 
Thanks for Bearing with Us - Monday, January 26, 2009

We're working with the Coalition of Reason now and will be back soon with an update!

 
We're Working on it! - Saturday, January 03, 2009

We're in the process of contacting the parties involved and will have an official update after our January business meeting (we did not have one in December).

 
WE DID IT! - Wednesday, December 10, 2008

The most recent donation put us not only over our goal, but over $2000! We can't thank you all enough, and look forward to posting news on our progress after our next business meeting. All excess dollars will go toward future billboard campaigns. For the immediate future, we will continue to accept donations.
