With the "Save the Peak" sign coming down today (the photo above shows what looks to be the beginning of the rewind), the stunt raised $1 million since the sign's transformation last Thursday, according to a press rep for Trust for Public Land. A press rep for the Trust tells us that donations came in from Los Angeles, but also from around the world. Additionally, a group of enterprising girls set up a lemonade stand near the sign. But seriously, all those Hollywood people are cheap. Only $1 million raised in total? "We expect the Hollywood community to step up," he said. Overall, the rep says the Trust "feels confident" they'll meet the goal, and raise the roughly $4 million left of the $12 million pricetag to be able to purchase the land. deadline to buy the land expires April 14th.
