Sponsor a Billboard on Islam Inside an NYC Subway Car for ONLY $48!

In coordination with ICNA-NY,Why Islam has signed an exciting new contract. During the upcoming month of Ramadan, there will be advertisements prompting subway riders to learn about Islam from authentic sources, in 1,000 subway cars!

The signs will be 70x11 in size. The black and white posters will ask simple but thought provoking questions and provide contact information for those riders interested in learning about Islam for themselves, vs. taking Fox News' word for it!

Why Islam has come up with 140 million reasons for people of conscience to support the campaign:
About 4.9 million people ride the subway system on a average day in NYC

These people come from all walks of life; rich and poor, artists and scientists, students and teachers

NYC is the only city in the USA where over half of all households do not own a car!

The Message of Islam will Insha Allah reach over 140 million people during one month, Insha Allah.
In case that doesn't motivate you, do it for the simple fact that it will upset at least one right wing nut case:
"I have no problem with the ad itself, but I have a very, very real problem with those behind it," Rep. Peter King, a New York Republican, said Tuesday. He is urging the Metropolitan Transit Authority to reject the ads. (Source: CNN)

I just did a Google search on this story and it's amazing the amount of hate and fear mongering out there.

Every right wing blogger this side of the Atlantic is freaking out.

What are they afraid of?

It's funny because the marketplace of ideas is an American concept, and yet those who claim to be most patriotic are freaking out over a bunch of 1st Amendment protected posters.

Somebody give me $48, I'm sponsoring an educational poster on the NYC subways!

To the last anonymous, perhaps you should Why Islam in the O.C./L.A. region and help start this up. They are in need of man power and money which we both lacking in this past weekend fundraiser in O.C. So if you or anyone want to see a change perhaps we should all help out with raising the money and being a volunteer with Why Islam.
