Purpose: raise money for Rehire James Gunn billboards outside Orlando and Anaheim Disney Parks.

Goal: One billboard near each park for at least one month, preferably during the holidays to maximize exposure.

Should we fail to raise enough money for at least one billboard for one month, all money will be refunded to contributors.

First steps: seeking potential billboard designs, scouting designs, sharing campaign to raise funds.

Please contact us if you are willing/able to help. Every little bit helps! Thank you to all of our Guardians of the Galaxy family!

“Showtime a-holes!”

Hello from the Guardians Family to our fellow Ravagers, and all those who support the cause.

Thanks to your support -- and the very “fun” business of signing contracts, false starts, negotiating, scouting, etc. -- A location has been secured, the art has been approved, and our billboard in support of James Gunn has arrived!

Located just a few miles away from Disneyland, we’re aiming for this to be shared on Social Media, and maybe get some press coverage, but we’d also love to see this billboard create a destination for Gunn supporters to visit and maybe grab a photo in front of to post their support. It’s visible off the 22 Eastbound Freeway just before the Harbor Blvd. exit, and is located at the corner of Task & Newhope in Garden Grove, California. If you map it you can get there using the address 13541 Newhope Street, Garden Grove, CA 92843

It’s an exciting time to be a James Gunn fan. With his great new gig at the Distinguished Competition, and the launch of the billboard to show public support for him returning to finish his beloved franchise. Who knows if we can make Disney see the error of its ways and correct this mistake but, like you, we couldn’t stand by and do nothing. At least their competitors seem to know what Disney has lost in letting him go.

In the end this was started by a bunch of passionate fans on a lark, and we have been moved and inspired by the support out there for Gunn. Here’s hoping that this very public display of support moves the needle a bit.

Thank you for backing our play. We are so happy to finally reveal this billboard, and we hope to see some of you out there getting pictures of it in the wild.



Love to all,
The Guardians Family

First off, thank you again to all of our donors. We are so grateful for your support in this effort. This has been a learning experience for all of us in the Guardians Family, and as a bonus we’ve met some amazing people. We have been delighted to bring the Rehire James Gunn movement more press and more Twitter action. Here’s hoping that these efforts bear fruit, and that James Gunn knows that so many people are in his corner of the galaxy.

Now down to business. Our first choice was for a print billboard in Anaheim but unfortunately that choice was booked before we had the necessary funds to secure it. Due to that, we have decided to go with our second choice digital option in Anaheim.

Previous to the digital option in Anaheim we had secured a location in Orlando outside universal studios with a national billboard leasing company. The company backed out of the lease after the contract was signed because they didn't want to have a potential conflict with a current company that leases from them. The company was Disney..

Some are hesitant at this point to risk drawing the ire of a company as large as Disney, and that’s why we feel it’s so important to show large amounts of public support for Gunn. Not only to hopefully give Disney something to think about, but also to show that the decision can be reversed and would be welcomed.

The good news is that, thanks to some more donations, WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL FOR OUR FIRST BILLBOARD! We are signing the Anaheim billboard for the busy period between Halloween and Thanksgiving. This means a lot more people will see our message and hopefully join our cause.
With this exciting development, you might be wondering what is next for the Guardians Family. Just like Star Lord, we would LOVE to continue our adventures with VOL.2. For us, this would be a second billboard in the Anaheim/LA area. However, this will require our GoFundMe goal to be increased and more donations to be raised.

We hope that you and others like you feel confident in our just cause. We’re looking for new recruits to help us research new ways to spread our message. We have looked at bus stop benches, wild postings, mobile billboards, and many other marketing ideas. We would love to have your support on our next endeavor, and we hope that you continue to call Disney, send them postcards, emails, and letters, and tweet to Bob Iger, Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, to show that we support their films and their brand,but we also support James Gunn, and we want him back at the helm of our cinematic universe.

Finally, we want to share our own social media channels and our new beautiful website, where you can find out more about the Guardians Family, James Gunn, and why we’re fighting so hard to get him rehired.

We would love to have you join us as a more active member of the Guardians Family if you are so inclined. We may be a bunch of jackasses standing in a circle having a dance-off, but just like the Guardians of the Galaxy, we’re getting stuff done!

Thanks again for all your support! We couldn’t have done this without you!

Love To All

Update Volume 3 (a number very special to all of us)

Dear Guardians from Xandar to Knowhere,

First off, just WOW! You are all amazing space angels! Thank you all so much for all of the contributions and support thus far. We are now over halfway towards our funding goal for the first billboard location!

We sure did jump the Gunn a little with this campaign, starting with only 12% of a plan, but that’s just who we are. After Disney continued in silence even with the 400,000 signatures on https://t.co/7m7OyteQOQ’s petition, we felt we didn't have time to figure out the minutia.

After little over a week at this, we can confidently say that we now have 68% of an AWESOME plan to make our voices heard. We can’t make Disney rehire James Gunn, but we think that just maybe, if we are vocal and visible, and they see enough support out in the universe it will make it easier for them to do the right thing: restart production on Vol. 3 and bring James back. Save Gunn. Save the Galaxy.

Thanks to the contributions of so many talented people, we now have a billboard design that we are really excited about. Getting final quotes on printing costs and billboard rental fees, with some variation depending on the final location. The spots we are looking at get about 200,000 views weekly, and since we have already gotten a lot of press before even having raised all the money, we feel confident that the press coverage will be there once we have the billboard up, greatly increasing the number of eyes on our campaign.

Our goal is to have the funds raised by October 22 in order to have the billboard up by October 29th. Please continue to donate and share this campaign.
Join us and together we can save James Gunn and the galaxy!

Love to all,
The Guardians Family
