Reason #1: The Yes Lab is Revolting

 

Give now to defeat evil

 

In the last twenty years, we Yes Men have taken on some of the world’s nastiest corporate criminals, using harmless lies to expose some really harmful stuff. We founded the Yes Lab in 2009 to train others in our no-holds-barred approach to fighting the bad guys.

 

It's been successful—so successful that we'll be scaling up dramatically in 2014 with the Action Switchboard, which we'll launch off the back of our upcoming film. Together, these are designed to get thousands of people out of their seats and into the streets, giving them the motivation, tools, and community to act for change. Truly revolting.

So prepare yourself for some extra doses of meaningful mischief in the coming years… but only if we can get the financial support we need right now.

 

Some of the Yes Lab's recent successes include:

 

 

Naturally, we didn't do this all on our own. At the Yes Lab, we use humor to hijack media and provide a surge of attention for a crucial cause at just theright moment. At our best, we push existing campaigns over the edge. None of that would be possible without the work of the organizers and activists we partner with.

 

Here’s the thing: this work takes relatively little money, but it does take some. As our organization grows, we are able to do more and more actions and trainings. We will soon need to increase our capacity, which may mean hiring new staff to tackle the many intricacies of our blossoming non-profit. We rely on you to make this work possible—any amount helps.

 

Thanks for your support!

 

From all of us here at Yes Lab
