WE HAVE SURPASSED $1,000 IN DONATIONS!!!!!
Pushing Daisies fans have definitely stepped up to send a message to ABC that they want their favorite show to live on!!! I just placed another order today (details below) and will continue to place orders as frequently as possible as long as the donations continue to roll in.
Which brings us to decision on how we want to march forward from here. We will have sent close to $1,000 in flowers to ABC (including the next order for tomorrow), so do we want to shift our donations away from flowers (which will look nice for a few days, but eventually will be thrown away) to something with more long-reaching benefits? I sent one shipment of daisy seeds to ABC and could send more. These are nice because they can donate them to local charities and I know some other sites are promoting this approach as well. Also, savepushingdaisies.net is promoting a Help the Bees campaign and a Pies for the Poverished campaign. I have not seen any additional information on the latter, but on the Bees campaign there is information on how to donate. I could pool together donations from this site and send those to the Bees campaign and the Pies campaign once it gets up and running. Then I will forward the details on these donations on to ABC.
So as you continue to send your donations, indicate if you want your money to go to flowers, seeds, and/or the Bees/Pie campaigns. Also, for those who sent donations in the last few days, if you want to specify how I should direct your money, just send me an Email a firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently I am sending the daisies to the main ABC address:
Attn: Steve McPherson and Anne Sweeney
500 S. Buena Vista Street
Burbank, CA 91521-4551
If anybody knows of alternate addresses to use, let me know.
Send your donations now so that we can continue to get the message out to ABC. All that you have to do is a few clicks on the computer to get your money to my PayPal account, then I will take care of the rest from there. Click on the button below to get started:
We also want to keep the online petition and write-in campaign going as well. Go to this link for more information on these and other initiatives to save Pushing Daisies: savepushingdaisies.blogspot.com/2008/10/write-in-campaign-and-other-initiatives.html
Update 11/13/08: Read about Fancast's interview with Brian Fuller where he suggests options to continue Pushing Daisies if ABC does cancel it (and thanks to FancastFan for the tip).
