Hi Todd,


I completely understand your skepticism. Our site is a platform for

funding billboard space.


Our billboards include Wikileaks billboards in LA & Chicago, Release

Bradley Manning in Kansas City & Washington DC, as well as Obama is a

republican bus ads in DC.


There are no secrets to why I am offering to fit the bill,

1. I support the movement 100%, my home was foreclosed but yet the

banks still got bailed out (what about me?), I lost my job but my

bosses still make crazy bonuses, and most of all I want private money

out of government.


2. I am trying to raise awareness for our platform, the goal is to

have people explore EpicStep and start their own campaigns. I need the

right people, people that are passionate, that care, and that have

compassion. There are no sponsors for this campaign, EpicStep (me & my

partner) will pay for all of it.


3. No billboard company would give up free ad space in Times Square, I

would love to Occupy billboards for free but they own the space, it is

not public. I have no problems paying for this because it serves all

of us well.


We are getting ready to approve two more campaigns in the next few

days, Forgive Student Loan Debt, and Get Money Out (Talking to Dylan

Ratigan's people today).


Give me a call and we can chat some more, 818-674-1526
