The information you presented and advertising spaces you illuminated are probably some that most artists and Nonprofits don't realize are there for the taking. Thanks again!"

"This is awesome - such a great project - thank you so much. In the Philly photos you see the SEPTA sign on the bus which is specific only to Philly. In fact, I'm trying to see if we can add another city before the end of the year if I can get the funding! Are you working in any other cities that we should consider? Feel free to send any suggestions!"
