We are using IndieGogo's crowd funding platform to provide Non-Stop Edutainment hosted by celebrities and activists worldwide, to raise funds and awareness for CCHHI2012, The Jack Herer Initiative. The virtual telethon will include musical interludes, interviews, and sweepstakes prizes every day for those who donate during the virtual Prohibition Tour! "It's Always 4:20 somewhere! And while, it is a California Initiative- this is a global issue that we need to unify around." explains creator of the Virtual Telethon, filmmaker Melissa Balin. "The 24-Hour Live Webcast streamed worldwide on April 1st will be intercut between pre-recorded footage in tribute to Jack Herer and real-time updates on crowd-funding and signatures collected, alongside live performances and comedic relief."
Pledge NOW here:
WHY: The Jack Herer Initiative is the only initiative eligible for the 2012 California ballot that addresses Re-Legalization of Cannabis Hemp as well as the release of non-violent offenders incarcerated for Marijuana convictions. All of the initiatives are running out of time to raise funds for professional signature gatherers and advertising & airtime. Friends & Family of Jack Herer encourage the community to show support for his dream & legacy by signing the petition to place the initiative on the ballot, donating the cost of a gallon of gasoline that could someday be made from Hemp; and Tweeting & Re-Tweeting!
THE DEADLINE FOR SIGNATURES IS THE DAY BEFORE JACK HERER DAY, APRIL 19, SO WE NEED YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS ON OR BEFORE APRIL 16!!! PLEASE HELP US MAKE HISTORY AND SEND A MESSAGE TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT THE VOTERS OF CALIFORNIA WANT A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.
What We Need & What You Get
For every dollar donated, we will get another two professionally gathered and verified signatures needed to make our April 19 deadline to get the Jack Herer Initiative on the ballot THIS November! Any additional funds raised will be used to place commercial spots on mainstream avenues and airwaves throughout California to help get the message out about the important issues of ReLegalizing Industrial Hemp and Freeing non-violent Cannabis offenders.
Most campaigns require millions of dollars worth of time and resources to get an Initiative on the ballot. Thanks to Jack Herer (may he rest in peace) and his Freedom Fighting friends- their tireless more than a decade long journey is at a climactic tipping point and we need your help to get to the finish line with only days remaining!
You will be rewarded with more than just feeling good about yourself for doing the right thing, because we have amazing perks being offered and NEW SHHWEEPSTAKES SURPRIZES DAILY for those who pledge over the next 10 days!
If we don’t reach our entire fundraising goal, we still have a shot of getting enough signatures if we do a good enough job tweeting & retweeting and encouraging friends & family to register to vote and sign the petition to put Jack Herer's California Cannabis Hemp & Health Initiative on the 2012 ballot. So Let's Get Activated!
This is beyond traditional fundraising for lobbying a cause, by engaging the constituent and peers, directly in a message-oriented transmedia project designed to educate, entertain, and activate.
Other Ways You Can Help
In this economy, we understand that many aren't able to contribute financially, but that doesn’t mean they don't have creative resources that might help:
- Donate iPads, postage, gasoline cards, food gift certificates, or advertising space and online banner space to the cause.
- Ask friends & family to help us get the word out on this ten day crowd-funding campaign and make some noise on the Wild Wild Interweb!
- Please use the Indiegogo share tools liberally!
Thanks for your continued support.
It's Not April Fools' That Hemp Can Save The Planet.
