We've had an overwhelming response to the suggestion in my column that we mount a citizens' ad campaign aimed at getting people to stop driving SUVs and other gas-guzzling vehicles -- and jolting our leaders into taking action.
It's been a busy and productive week. Lawrence Bender, producer of "Pulp Fiction" and "Good Will Hunting," and director Scott Burns, co-creator of the "Got Milk?" ad campaign, have agreed to donate their services to make these ads a reality through A Band Apart, Bender's production company. To get these ads on the air we are establishing a nonprofit fund for the sole purpose of creating them.
Many of you have asked where you can contribute. The Natural Resources Defense Council was kind enough to take donations for an interim period, but now that we've got our independent fund up and running, please send your donations to:
SUV Ad Fund/A Band Apart
7966 Beverly Blvd. 2nd Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90048

Thank you so much for taking a stand.
