Thank you everyone who said they'd be willing to contribute to a trade advertisement purchase.

Variety got back to me with exact prices:
Full page black&white - $6,244
1/2 page b&w - $3,739

Still waiting for a reply from The Hollywood Reporter - which will be cheaper.

A few suggested other ideas such as mobile billboards to drive outside the network studios in LA, and pages in Entertainment Weekly, so even if we don't raise enough money for a trade magazine ad, there are other ways.

I set up a Charity/Non-profit PayPal account, using my name as the contact name. Anyone willing to help me organise this would be appreciated.

TO DONATE, GO TO http://saveourseeker.com

You don't need a Paypal to donate, just a credit/debit card and click the link on the bottom left of screen beside the "login" box.
For those without a card, you can also buy pre-paid Visa cards in convenience stores, with a certain amount of money on which you can use on Paypal

We need to act quickly, GO FORTH AND PIMP!

I can't donate! It's in dollars :x

Paypal converts it to whatever currency you use. I'm English and it worked for me :)

If there is left over money we should have a way to promote the show by giving a iTunes Gift card to people who've never seen it or something? IDK so the money gets to disney/ABC somehow.
Kate: LotS Cara !bewbs!halfabubble on April 28th, 2010 10:46 pm (UTC)
That's a good idea. Either that or we can donate what's left to a charity in the show's name. We'll have a vote or something in the future

I'm new(ish) to the online fandom, don't even know who you are, lol. Yet, I totally have faith in you. I just donated $20. I'd donate more, but have had a heavy week, lol.

Come on people. Donate! :o)

I just want to make sure, is this allowed? I mean, are we allowed to use the name of the show for advertising purposes?

If yes, I will gladly donate. :)
nOPEandymcnope on April 28th, 2010 11:17 pm (UTC)
Name of the show, yes. Not screencaps or promo pics though, I don't think. Google the Jericho and TSCC campaigns for a better idea of what can and can't be used

we should start on making an ad (icon makers/photoshop wizards) so we can vote on it and be ready for when we reach the goal!

Save our Seeker!
Just donated! I know this is all worth it - I love LOTS and it's amazing fandom.
nOPEandymcnope on April 28th, 2010 11:18 pm (UTC)
I have donated $25, and I get paid soon, so if we are short of a goal and need more, I'm more than willing to make a second or third donation!

(just don't tell my significant other)

Just sent in 20, will try and do a bit more after pay day! (after all, this MUST be what the government had in mind when they gave me those student loans right?) I just figure "this keeps me sane, and in school....so it totally counts"

This is such a fantastic idea. Hopefully it'll make them sit up and realise what loyal fans they have - that they seem so willing to let go of.

I'm totally in. Donated $20US. I'll be back to donate more later too :)
