BENEFITING: Make-A-Wish America
EVENT DATE: May 17, 2012
The fan base's response to The Secret Circle cancellation has been astounding and a bit humbling. Fans trended at least 2 topics worldwide on twitter the day of the announcement and have since started 3 major petitions with the largest receiving over 23,000 signatures. The second largest has become the 5th most signed Twitition ever started in a matter of days (over 18,000 signatures!).
Emails encouraging the reversal of the cancellation by The CW have poured in and many fans have sent physical letters to the network offices as part of our mail campaign. Fans have even begun to contact other networks (ABC Family, MTV, & SyFy) hoping that they'll revive the canceled (but beloved) series. All of this has garnered some media attention, including articles from writers at Hypable, ATV Today, Chevron One, and Toronto.com.
This made us think. There are so many voices out there fighting for one cause: to bring back The Secret Circle. And though it's a cause we fully stand behind, we're very aware of the power of those numbers, and how they could make a difference for someone in need. So we at STC have decided to utilize the passion of the TSC fan base to help make someone's wish come true.That’s why we’ve launched the “Make-A-Wish to Save-A-Witch” campaign.
We are collecting donations for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and are asking fans who want a network pick-up of The Secret Circle to donate at least $10 to the charity. $10 is the minimum donation required to give by this website. We know most of us don't have money lying around, but if only 100 of you donated just $10, Make-A-Wish would receive over $1,000. We have over 1,500 followers on twitter and over 500 on tumblr. Please take a moment and consider giving.
Let’s keep the magic of The Secret Circle alive by creating some magic in another person's life. Maybe with all the wishes we help grant, ours will be granted in return.
NOTE: When donating, we kindly ask that you place "MTV Networks" in the donor name line. We also ask that you select "send e-card" and email the donation receipt to Katie Bradshaw at Katie.Bradshaw@mtvstaff.com. She is in charge of press for Teen Wolf, Awkward, Chelsea Settles, and I Just Want My Pants Back.
