Adbusters is launching Mindbombs

Hey there Wild One,

Adbusters is launching Mindbombs, a powerful new campaign to crowdfund the purchase of airtime on major networks in the US and Canada.

Help us reach our goal in 40 days.

For the past 25 years, Adbusters Media Foundation has been working to ensure that the voices of rebels, dreamers and rabble-rousers worldwide are heard. It’s no secret that there are big things looming on the horizon this year: a federal election will be called any day in Canada, another coming up in 2016 in the US, and then the climate talks in Paris this December — our last chance to get world leaders to deliver a legally binding and universal solution to our impending climate crisis.
