SOS.com Fundraiser  
As promised in this forum post and thanks to your generous contributions, we were able to roll out a poster ad campaign at Comic-Con International in San Diego together with iTunes episode giveaways. Both promos will be repeated at DragonCon, in Atlanta, September 3-6. Please also refer to this post to read about the SOS campaign strategy and how fans' money has been spent/allocated to date.

Now more than ever, we need to make sure TV network execs and producers are aware of all the fans' initiatives to promote "Legend of the Seeker". And that's the goal of the new Journey Book Campaign which - funds permitting, we'd like to augment with a NEW advertisement in 'The Hollywood Reporter' at the end of August [correction: beginning of August].

ideas for fundraisers In order to buy the ad on THR, which will cost $3,600, we're starting a new fundraiser. Please take a look at the "Thank You" gifts with Marlusrahl's design we'd like to offer to the generous fans that are able to contribute funds to sos.com. The thermometer on the right shows our progress against the goal: WE REACHED OUR GOAL ON AUGUST 6TH. ADDITIONAL DONATIONS WILL BE USED FOR THE SEASON 2 DVD DRIVE.

You'll be able to choose any of these items:

One item will be sent for a $50 donation. We'll be happy to send 2 items of your choice for a $75 donation, and 3 items for a $100 donation. We can ship worldwide. All these thank you gifts are available exclusively to sos.com supporters. Smaller amounts help tremendously and are immensely appreciated. We just won't be able to send a gift in return.

Please make sure to let us know your Thank You Gift(s) of choice by completing this field "Add special instructions to the seller" when you fill out the PayPal form at www.saveourseeker.com.

---> When requesting clothing, please specify infant/toddler/kids/men's/women's, plus color and size.

Marlus, thank you again for donating your cheerful "Team Awesome" design to sos.com. And thank you to all of you - fans - for your unwavering support.

Ahhh, these are adorable! :D I get paid soon, so I'm hoping I can tweak the budget enough to be able to donate. :D

(I really just wanted to comment on how crazily cute that design is. :D )

I agree. Marlus's a genius. You can find his designs at http://marlusrahl.livejournal.com/

Ooooh I'm so donating to get those awesome items! Is there a deadline on this?
Book Lover for Lifesot_fan on August 1st, 2010 04:22 pm (UTC)
We'd like to publish the ad on THR at the end of August, but there's no deadline for the donations, as we'll need more money if we want to do a S2 DVD drive.

That's awesome that people who donate get thank you gifts. :)

Will the people who donated $100+ for the Library DVD Donation Drive get their DVDs sent to them soon?
Book Lover for Lifesot_fan on August 1st, 2010 05:43 pm (UTC)
We'll ship the DVDs as soon as we receive them. They are on a UPS truck to sos.com.

Excellent, I'm going to spread the word.

The mug! The tote! The tshirt! These are fantastic - I want them all! Definitely donating now. *g*

Just had to have the mug AND the shirt. Donation done. Gotta love technology...although it does make it a little too easy to click your money away ;)
Totally worth it though. I have been donating anyway, but this is a great bonus. Plus, the mug is coming to work with me to once again bombard my colleagues with Seeker stuff :P
Book Lover for Lifesot_fan on August 2nd, 2010 01:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! What would we do without online shopping :)
asheebizzleasheebizzle on August 3rd, 2010 02:34 am (UTC)
can you get the shirt in black ?
ellazaraellazara on August 3rd, 2010 03:55 pm (UTC)
Just donated!! Now I'm broke, but had to have that tote bag!
Book Lover for Lifesot_fan on August 3rd, 2010 04:10 pm (UTC)
Oh nooooo!!! Now we'll have the tote guilt :/ .... or we could just blame Marlusrahl :)
Thank you for your donation.
ellazaraellazara on August 3rd, 2010 04:25 pm (UTC)
Hehe I'll be fine, besides this show is worth it ;) and so is that tote bag :P

Marlusrahl's Team Awesome design is for "thank you" gifts only. It would not be unfair to Seekers who've donated to sos.com if we made it available for sale.

We received many requests to make smaller, inexpensive items available with Marlus and other artists' designs, so we're looking into that. We still have the S2 DVD drive ahead. No time to rest :)
asheebizzleasheebizzle on August 7th, 2010 01:46 am (UTC)
yay im so happy i was finally able to donate i cant wait for my shirt !

WOW. I was literally gone for two weeks and I come back to find there has been another ad fundraiser (which is AWESOME) and that it has already reached it's goal!?!?! (WHICH IS EVEN MORE AWESOME!)

*applauds fandom* YOU ALL ROCK!! xD

although I admit I am somewhat sad to not have been able to participate... can I still donate and receive the items?? they are just too freaking cute!!! :)
Book Lover for Lifesot_fan on August 9th, 2010 01:09 am (UTC)
Yes. You can still donate to receive the 'thank you' gifts ;)

Any additional donations will go towards the Season 2 DVD Library Drive. I gotta create another page on LJ to keep track of the donations *adds to To Do List* :)
