A new grassroots effort, called #HereWeBuild, in Sacramento to support the construction of a new arena, with or without the Kings, was started yesterday after Anaheim officials approved a $75million in bonds to lure the Kings. @CarmichaelDave began collecting pledges, and by midnight around $100,000 had come in. It didn’t take long for that amount to double and now we’re looking in the neighborhood of a quarter of a million dollars!
Some big names have donated and some local businesses have helped out the cause considerably. For example, @JiffyLube pledged $25,000 (+donations =$30,500) and provided space on several digital billboards to display messages supporting the cause, including, “All things start somewhere…”
Please support the #HereWeBuild movement. Here are a few ways:
