CREATORS OF THE 'MONEYBOMB' TAKE CONCEPT TO NATIONAL STAGE WITH NEW WEB SITE, NATIONAL TELEVISION AD
November 11, 2009 - Across the country, voters continue to speak out against runaway spending and government expansion that threaten freedom and prosperity - for today and for future generations.
Today, a new Web campaign is being launched by the award winning creators of the "moneybomb," the goal of which is to combine their proven and unprecedented fundraising results with the energy of Tea Party activists and other conservatives seeking real change in the nation's capital.
The new site, www.TeaBombs.com, gives participants a chance to choose incumbents that need to be sent packing, and then to pick a reformer challenger, in a patriot primary, to take their place. Then, on December 16, the top ranked challengers will be moneybombed by donors across the country, giving their campaigns a jumpstart and a new network of donors that will give them the winning edge on the opposition.
The site is being launched today, along with a national television ad.
The moneybomb was the online marketing achievement of Trevor Lyman, now one of the founders of teabombs.com. The first moneybomb was launched two years ago today, and raised over $4 million. The teabombs.com moneybomb is taking place on the second anniversary of the December 16, 2007 moneybomb, which raised $6 million and is said to hold the record for the largest single day internet fundraising effort ever.
"We've seen hundreds of thousands of Americans - from the tea parties to the 9/12 rally in Washington - who are tired of business as usual in Washington and who are ready for conservative change," said Lyman. "It's clear there is a lot of energy out there, and the goal of teabombs.com is to translate that energy into action."
"We are launching teabombs.com because it's become clear that with few exceptions, Washington politicians don't have the courage to govern on the principles they were elected upon. As a result, our generation and those to come are going to be on the hook for crippling debt that will bring our economy to standstill. We're faced with a clear choice - more government, or more liberty. We think that more and more Americans are waking up and realizing our nation is at a crossroads, and that it's time to choose," Lyman said.
