Free Gilad Shalit

By Bernie on 03 Jun 2011

Free Gilad Shalit campaign billboard

The billboard you see above needs to be placed near the Manhattan headquarters of the United Nations building to remind the world's governments that they need to help free Gilad Shalit who has been held captive by Hamas since 25 June 2006.

Spearheading the effort to erect this billboard is Gal Sitty, 28, a Los Angeles native, who is using the services of EpicStep (1) to help fund the campaign.

The cost to put up the billboard is $10,000, 70% of which has been raised so far with 3 days to go. Any donation that my readers can make will help. To donate go here.

If this campaign does not reach the $10,000 goal by 6 June at 1:30 p.m. PDT, your credit card will not be charged.

Please help if you can.

GIYUS, After 5 long years donate to give Gilad Shalit a chance of freedom

It's hard to believe that almost 5 long years have gone by since Gilad Shalit was captured by Hamas. 5 years have gone by, where we each lived, loved, learned and evolved. But for Gilad Shalit and his family time stands still. June 25th will mark five long years of heartache for Gilad Shalit and family.


Five years we have all stood waiting for our leaders to do what is necessary to free Gilad. Everyday that goes by is another long, lonely day for Gilad who is being kept hidden somewhere in Gaza in unknown conditions. Hamas, has not even allowed the Red Cross to visit to ensure he is being treated humanely.

Now Hamas is officially in the Palestinian government that is making a push to the United Nations asking for statehood.

Please do what you can to give Gilad a voice. We cannot allow the world to continue to ignore this unspeakable crime. Donate today to the effort to put up a billboard near the UN headquarters in New York telling the world leaders to free Gilad Shalit! The Shalit family is waiting to see this billboard go up, lets show them we all care and we are here for them and for Gilad by putting up this billboard.


Please share this initiative with your friends on Facebook and Twitter to expose it to more people.

Update 6 June 2011

I am pleased to report that the campaign has passed the goal of $10,000. But you can still pledge more to keep the billboard up longer.



JPost, 8 May 2011, Angeleno launches drive for Schalit billboard near UN

Epicstep was founded earlier this year by Lev Reys and brothers Gene and Eugene Vekslar. The site works as a fundraising platform for creating billboards - users choose the issue they feel compelled to promote and supporters log on and donate until the final cost, which varies per billboard but for Sitty's campaign is $10,000, is reached. Supporters' credit cards are not charged until the fundraising goal is reached, so if the campaign to create a billboard fails, no pledges are lost.
