PEOPLE from across the country have so far contributed £400,000 in just four weeks towards a new national landmark being built in Warwickshire, the Eternal Wall of Answered Prayer.
The Crowdfunder that aims to raise £1million in just 40 days, closes on October 22, with each penny contributed going directly to the building of the monument itself, creating a crowd-funded, crowd-created piece of public art.
The Eternal Wall of Answered Prayer, will be built between the M6 and M42 motorways, and aims to be a beacon of hope by profiling a million answered prayers on a site near Coleshill.
The project will also be contributing funding towards local social housing, building over 100 homes.
Once built, the advocates hope the landmark will generate more than £30million for charities and good works in its first 20 years.
The 169ft structure, will include a million bricks, each representing an answered prayer.
Since the project received the green light more than 7,000 generous individuals have donated over £1m to the project, but a further £600,000 is needed before construction can start.
The Eternal Wall is scheduled to be twice the size of the Angel of the North, and is expected to attract 300,000 visitors each year, contributing £9.3 million to the local economy. Half a million cars are expected to drive past each day and it will be in view of planes landing into Birmingham Airport.
