The Story

The viral Facebook meme against #SimonKirby - the crowdfunder

Sponsor this viral meme against Simon Kirby, the vulnerable Conservative MP for Brighton Kemptown (including Peacehaven). As the meme deftly points out, Simon's majority is just 690.

The meme has already been seen by tens of thousands of Facebook users in and around Brighton and Peacehaven.The first £189 spent on paid advertising has directly reached the news feeds of nearly 31,000 residents in Brighton, Rottingdean and Peacehaven. Over 3,000 of those people clicked on the post, and over 700 shared it.

Shares have generated more shares, going way outside Brighton all over the UK, and the meme is VIRAL! Just that first £189 has sent the meme to an overall UK-wide audience of 449,000, with 4,900 shares.

So we've been generating a nationwide appetite to see Simon Kirby lose, but it's reaching ordinary voters in Brighton Kemptown constituency which will really help bring that about on 8th June.

It's not possible to target Facebook ads to a single constituency within Brighton, but we can target "Brighton" (without Hove). We estimate that direct paid reach onto the news feed of EVERY Facebook user in Facebook and Peacehaven (there are 150,000 of them) will cost around £900, and so this is the target for this crowdfunder.

Your donation will be directly channelled into Facebook paid advertising, pushing this viral post onto the news feeds of even more Brighton residents and Peacehaven residents.

The Facebook page Stop the Tories 2017 will use all your donations to keep boosting this post to the news feeds of more and more people in Brighton and Peacehaven. People who DON'T normally see political posts on their Facebook news feeds.
