Save the Harold Lloyd Birthplace!

In conjunction with Kristen from SalesOnFilm and Trevor from AModernMusketeer, we are attempting to save the birthplace of silent film legend Harold Lloyd. Our hope is to have the place appointed a National Historic Place, but this takes money and time. We’ve got several events coming up in the next few months and we need all the help we can get. Please take a few minutes to “like” the Save the Harold Lloyd Birthplace page on Facebook, where you can read all about how you can help and we will add any and all updates about our progress. I’ve also designed a banner you can use to promote the cause on your blogs and websites:
