We are doing our best to promote this rally. Our organizer just purchased 5,000 flyers.

THIS IS NOT ENOUGH.
We will give out all 5,000 tomorrow at a philly peace rally.

We need many more Flyers, and we need money to get them

Everyone is waiting for this event to destroy the perception that we are "only on the internet". Please help get us the money we need to promote effectively.

Help us get 5,000 or 10,000 rally slim jims.

No donation is too small.

***EDIT*** The donation tracker will not be live until monday. The donations still go through. As of Friday, 6:16 EST the total is 95$, we are 1/3 of the way there.

Help us get 5,000 more rally slim jims.

Which slim jims are you using? I hope not the ones with the pic of Ronald Reagan. Those are very targeted to conservative republican voters. Not great for general public.

I should have the problem resolved shortly. Current total is 45$

From my understanding these flyers I am talking about are more like a slim jim. They are also full color.

Believe me though, I will look around and get the best buy. 300$ is the price quote I got from a trustworthy source. If there is a better deal I will take it. I will not be wasting any money on this.

I did. the 95$ price you listed appears to be for the most basic, smallest flyer they print. The flyers I am talking being 300$ are better then this.

But the site you listed may have a slightly better deal. I need to talk with my meetup as they have already done research into this and I havn't. I can assure you that everyones money will be used efficiently.

We are currently at 45$ raised.

The chip in meter wont be live until monday, but the money is still coming in. Thanks everyone who chipped in so far.

I've used Rush Flyers before. They are post card size (4x6), full color, uv coated (they are glossy) and on heavy card stock.

If you adjust the proportions of your image from the slim jim, I guarantee that your flyer will look great. I have seen the PDF.

You can then get a much larger amount....

Yeah, $300 for 5,000 sounds expensive to me too. We paid around that much for 10,000 for the Nashville rally and I would think that you need 15,000 - 20,000.

Thanks tex, You rule!

David - Thanks for the heads up, I will def shop around before spending the money. I am shooting to raise 300$ anyway, I will buy as many flyers possible with it.

How much do you have? The chipin shows $0, but I know that's not the case. Anyhow, bump for a good cause!!
