The next move for Occupy Homes is publicizing their progress with national airtime via the Occupy Spots project. This commercial campaign has aired on CNN, MSNBC, and FOX and will continue to air at peak viewing times during the presidential debates this October. Occupy Homes has had the most success in raising money for airtime. The campaign features short clips for videos promoting grassroots movements to encourage citizen participation in reforming the political process. Gina Levy, a filmmaker and activist from Los Angeles, says that every vote, voice, and action counts.
Collecting funds for airtime has been the greatest challenge for all people involved. Colin Multcher made us of Loudsauce.com, a crowdfunding platform that allows people to make small donations for a specific cause or event. The Occupy Spots figure is currently over $10,000, but every little bit helps. Donations can be made at the Occupy Spots website.
