Better roadside reading, thanks to Uniting NC

Ever dreamed of seeing your face up on a billboard?

Uniting NC can make it happen, as long as you agree with their mission of making North Carolina a place with respect and understanding for immigrants.

The non-profit launched a fundraising campaign today to put billboards up around the state.

How many? Well, that depends on how many people want to see them up.

But anyone who donates more than $100 will get their picture on the billboard, according to a news release from Uniting NC.

The group, which is an affiliate of the national group Welcoming America,  hopes to raise $3,500 in all by mid-October, enough to put up billboards in the mountains, coast and places in between. Uniting NC will only take your donation if the entire $3,500 is raised.

To donate, head over the non-profit’s page on LoudSauce, a new online tool that allows “crowdfunding” of billboards. For more information on Uniting NC, head over to their website, http://www.unitingnc.org/.

Here’s a sample of another billboard design they hope to use:
