NMG And The Brave Girls Alliance Take Over Times Square
On October 11 we’re taking over Times Square with New Moon Girls and the Brave Girls Alliance! We know that gender-stereotyped media, toys and products are a risk to healthy and empowered girlhood. As a founding partner of the new Brave Girls Alliancewe ask you to join a worldwide campaign that will start in Times Square.
We can only make this happen if we all contribute what we can to reserve a Times Square electronic billboard to beam our messages to the world every 15 minutes for seven days!
Why a Times Square billboard?
1.5 Million Pedestrians Daily
50 Million Tourists per year
56,000 cars daily
#1 Global Branding Location
Home to ads from many media and toy companies
Starting October 11, the second International Day of the Girl, curated tweets and messages from Brave Girls allies will flash on a billboard on Times Square. We will display 40 messages/tweets per hour. Right in the heart of the world’s commercial media showplace. Can you imagine a better place to attract public attention and raise the issue of harmful gender stereotypes? I can’t.
And all those eyes will see constructive, proactive and very inspiring messages being displayed to millions and millions of people. Messages aimed at media, toy, and product creators, retailers, and major corporations.
Already, Brave Girls Alliance has raised $4,793. But we still need your help to reach our goal of $25,000 by Sept 11 to rent our first billboard in Times Square! And when we meet the funding goal we have even more exciting plans to share with you for Oct 11! All funding over this goal will be used to run similar campaigns in other media hotspots around the world. Click here to contribute!
