We’ve always been supportive of the various fundraisers that have happened in the fandom. One has come to my attention that supports Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation that’s running through next month at Supernatural-Fandom.com. Below is all the information I received about the fundraiser:
We are currently running a fundraiser (our first) which ends on December 23rd.
We allowed the fans to vote for which charity we’re supporting and the fandom chose the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Every single one of my staff members (myself included) is somehow affected by type 1 diabetes so this fundraiser is hitting home. We want it to succeed. We’ve gotten some amazing raffle donations.
Our fundraiser works like this: For every $10 a fan donates, that fan is entered once into the raffle drawing. For every $50 the fan donates, he/she is entered six times into the raffle drawing. The fundraiser ends December 23rd. The week between Christmas and New Years we will be drawing the winners and announcing them on our site, on Facebook, and on Twitter.
Here are some important links regarding the fundraiser:
1. http://supernatural-fandom.com/index.htm - This is the homepage, but it has a thermometer with the fundraiser results on it.
2. http://supernatural-fandom.com/funprizes.htm - This is for prizes already donated, and also tells fans how to donate.
3. http://jdrfevents.donordrive.com/campaign/spnfandom - This is the page where the donations are actually taken. It’s through the JDRF website. Supernatural-fandom.com has no access to the money donated.
4. http://supernatural-fandom.com/rickmeetgreet.htm - This is information on the Rick Worthy Lunch Date. It is NOT included in the raffle. It’s being done auction-style.
So please, I know this is a generous fandom, help support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The goal is a very attainable $2500 and these are some really nice prizes. Good luck to Supernatural-Fandom.com!
