Put Gilad on a billboard
Free Gilad Schalit Billboard effort
27 May 2011
Gal Sitty, a 28-year-old Los Angeles native, has started a campaign on epicstep.com to fund and erect a billboard near the Manhattan headquarters of the United Nations imploring leaders to take steps to free the captive soldier, Gilad Schalit.
The goal is to reach $10,000 by June 6th, at 10:04 a.m. PDT. At last count he was still $US5,304 short with 12 days to go.
This isn’t the first time you’ve been asked to donate to a cause, although it is the first time Five Minutes for Israel has become involved. Unlike other times you have been approached by someone with their hand outstretched this is a donation where you know exactly where your money is going and if the target is not reached no credit cards will be charged.
