We wanted to brief you a bout the OneVoice campaign on channel 10. Uri Baron (our movie maker) and I were invited to the new morning show of Channel 10. They loved our campaign "What Are You Willing to Do?" and they wanted to support it as much as they can, so they gave us the opening item for their new show. We told them about OneVoice and a bout the campaign and they promoted our idea by giving our email to people that would like to send us crazy or exciting clips. They also showed our skydivers clip and said it was a great idea and maybe OneVoice can take people out of their apathy.
The host of the show was Koby Oz. Koby is the leader of a popular band in Israel called Tipex. They are going to represent Israel in the Eurovision this year with a very provocative song against extremism. Koby really liked what we are doing and ask how he can join. I gave him the pin and he put it on. He said that he is going to have an interview for Al Jazeera in the afternoon and he promised that he will wear the pin during the interview. He asked me if he can go freely with the OV pin in Palestine and I said, "Of course - it is like a shield for moderates on both sides." ... Now we have to convince him to wear it in the Eurovision.
Stay tuned for more ...
