    Limited Edition SOLD T-shirt

    Wear your objection to a corrupt government right on your chest — and help us do something about it. Spoofing his own iconic "HOPE" poster from 2008, Shepard Fairey made this "SOLD" T-shirt exclusively for our campaign. We think the message is pretty clear.

    Signed Copy of Republic, Lost

    Lawrence Lessig's seminal book is the foremost account of why we're sending Gil to Kentucky — and an inspiration for thousands who have joined the anti-corruption movement. He has generously signed 25 copies for our supporters.

    Join Gil's Cabinet

    At this donor level, you qualify for a cabinet position. No experience necessary! Just let us know what you'd like your title to be (Secretary of Defense? Secretary of Offense? Secretary of Secrecy? The choice is yours, but please keep it clean.) We'll put your name on the website as one of Gil's esteemed advisors.

    Gil's Website is Your Website

    For one day, you will be the sole and primary sponsor of HonestGil.com. We'll create a pop-over that sits in front of all other content featuring your name (or pseudonym — transparency is for plebeians) and a nod to the issue you care about most. Think of it as your own personal philanthropic Children's Library, without all those noisy kids and pesky books.

    Corporate Benefactor

    Politicians should wear their sponsors' logos right on their chest — old Gil here actually will! If you kick his campaign enough money, he'll wear your corporate logo right on the breast pocket of his blazer and be sure to plug you in his stump speeches. We'll include your name in every PR story, and put your logo on every single piece of campaign collateral. It's amazing exposure for your brand, plus you'll associate your organization's name with the most important cause of our time.

    Corporate Crony

    Gil loves his big dollar business pals! For $5,000, he'll wear your logo on his campaign outfit (just like a NASCAR driver), plug your business in speeches, and slap your logo on his campaign collateral. It's great exposure for your brand in support of a great cause!
