Bills For Billboard fundraiser at Shakespeare’s is happening THIS SUNDAY, 4/28.
The Bills for Billboard campaign is fundraising to support the cost of putting up a human trafficking awareness billboard along I-70. We want this billboard to be EVERYBODY’S billboard, so the focus of the campaign is grassroots funding! While the billboard has been put up, we have not yet reached our funding goals! The production cost was $1500 – any money raised above this amount will go towards human trafficking education and victim services in central Missouri!
The fundraiser is for ALL Shakespeare’s locations. With the flier (turned in at time of payment – don’t forget!) 15% of the total with be donated to CMSHTC. (Flier at bottom!)
At 1 pm at the Shakespeare’s south location we are having a gathering open to any and all who want to enjoy meeting up and having pizza with fellow supporters.
Supporters can also meet up at 3 pm on Sunday, April 28 at the south location Shakespeare’s parking lot when we will leave to carpool to the site of the actual billboard for a group picture! The billboard is located 60 miles West of Columbia, on I-70, near mile marker 70/exit 71. It is on the south side of the highway and you can reach it through the access road. Expect this to take at least two hours, because the billboard is about an hour from Columbia!
Social media sharing is intended to be a big part of this, with people sharing pictures and thoughts. So like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter (@No_MOre_Slaves) Tweet us your pizza pics, take pictures with our billboard at the South Shakespeare’s location, and let us know why YOU care about stopping human trafficking!
Shakespeare’s Gentle Reminders:

2. We kindly request that fliers be handed out at least 623 feet from our Front Door.
A BIG THANK you to Lamar, who is waiving the monthly fee for billboard advertising, which is $500-$600 a month. The only cost to us is the one-time billboard production fee of $1,500. Another BIG thank you to Shakespeare’s, for giving us the chance to fundraise in a delicious way!
Here is the flyer! We hope to see you there!
