Organized by: Alex Del Barrio
This campaign is the continuation of the Change.org petition that has garnered unbelievable support for the UT-RGV administration and the decision making committees to re-consider "Broncs" as the mascot choice for the school that will replace the University of Texas-Pan American. We have been clear that the alumni, and Rio Grande Valley community have not been properly informed on the process, how to garner their support, or how to impact the decision. We feel like our voices are not being heard. No one has even polled the alumni or current student body on if they feel Broncs or even UT-Brownsville's Ocelot should be considered.
This fundraising campaign is to help aide in the spread of awareness for the petition and for aiding with expenses associated with running the campaign. The monies raised will be used to purchase advertisements in the student newspapers, The Monitor and potentially local television and radio. It will also be used to purchase a website domain and host for a centralized website for supporters of the campaign to be informed of the latest developments.
People can still sign the petition at https://www.change.org/p/savebucky or visit our Facebook page at Facebook.com/Savebucky
