    UPDATE: Donate to Taxi campaign at http://www.opencarry.org/taxi.html

    John and I each are donating another $100 - if you want to upgrade to Founders Club member status, dionate $100 or more in ONE LUMP SUM so we can upgrade you.

    =========

    Texans and other freedom fighters - we have successfully raised enough money for 3 months of the billboard for Texas open carry!:celebrate

    And now we have an opportunity to blnaket a major Austin city with taxi-cab banners highlighting the open carry petition for Texas.

    John will soon be making the fundrasing cab-o-meter for this, but first I need to ask - can a big fish out there step forward and match the first $750 we raise? yu can be anonymous if you wish - out last big fish was from Virginia (let's call him "Mr. K.").

    Can I get a Mr. T. from out there in Texas? PM or email me at Mike at OpenCarry.org

    it appears for $1,500 we can get 3 months of large scale taxi advertizing.

    Why not use some of the money to make bumper stickers and sell them? I would gladly pay $5.00 or more for a sticker to advertise for this cause! You can advertise longer than three months with bumper stickers! Just thought I would toss an idea in the pot.

    Mike,

    I can't go $750, but I can do a bit better than $7.50. Would another PayPal donation help the cause along?

    stay safe.

    Sure, once John gets the separate funder going, we can track funds to the taxis - but surely we have some folks out their of signifcant means who can do matching.

    Grats, DV, and thanks for the help.

    Edit: What part of Houston are you in? I grew up in Houston. North side around Hardy (before it was a toll road) and Parker.

    Around 1960 & Aldine Westfield or maybe east of Humble? Or maybe a little south around Jetera?

    North, but not so far as into the boonies. The Magic Kingdom they call it, The Bubble, where nothing bad ever happens, ever, and don't you dare talk about it.

    Perhaps the taxicab co owner is pro-gun. Why not ask him to donate some of the banner space?

    John/Mike,
    Can you show us what the banners will look like and/or what they will say? Ditto for the billboard.

    The bill board company is supposed to give us a picture of the actual board; maybe somebody can get one on I-35?

    The taxi one would look similar I suppose, but first we need to understand the dimensions of the taxi vanner.

    John will be working a new contrib thread for the taxis soon.
