Raising the bar

Last night I was suffering from a bit of insomnia, so I decided to check my email. I was happy to see that we had a couple of new donations reported. I was also very surprised to see the following email…

I wanted to let you know that I donated in Walter’s name to ACS in the amount of $55.  I loved the idea of doing it in $5 increments but I currently am based in Indonesia and thought it would cause problems with my credit card company if I did it that way.  They may think it was a stolen credit card and I didn’t want them to freeze/cancel my card.  I did break that amount into 2 transactions so at least a few more cards will go to the people at FOX.

Sincerely,
Christa H.
Okay guys…. This is a Finder fan from INDONESIA!!! And not only did she donate $5. But she donated $55!!!! This is exactly what I”m talking about. People who are willing to do more than just lie down and moan about how awful Fox is for cancelling The Finder and how there isn’t anything good on tv anymore. Christa went above and beyond to make her point to Fox to say “Look, I love this show. I support it. And I really want to see it back on the air!”
If a fan in Indonesia can step up and and do this, then how about the American fans? Let’s show Fox how much we love our show. Get that petition signed. Donate to help FIND a cure for cancer in Walter Sherman’s name. Even if all you can do is the $5 minimum, it is still a chance to send out five cards to Fox. We just need to push through this summer slump and get it done! 🙂

Call to action

Over the past week or so, action in our movement has been declining. Views have been going down. The names going on the petition have been slowing. There are fewer tweets going out. Were are losing our momentum.

This is what is called a cross-road. We can either throw our hands up in the air, say that it’s impossible to fight Fox on this, and just roll over and accept the decision the TV gods have made for us. Or we can continue to fight.

We haven’t heard anything about whether or efforts are making any kind of difference because Fox fully expects our movement to fizzle out. They know that the vast majority of people are lazy. Yes, some will put up a bit of a fuss. They  will cry and stomp their feet and say they will never watch Fox again. And that will last maybe a month. Then everyone will forget their “sworn oath” to boycott Fox, and life will go on as usual. So what do they really have to lose by being quiet? Not a damn thing. And judging by the way the numbers are dropping like flies, they’re right.

There are over 90,000 fans on The Finder facebook page. Yet, we’re not even at 14,000 names on the petition. There are over 3,000 fans on the Save The Finder page and we’ve had barely over $200 in donations. Every day, I see new posts on The Finder facebook page, and how they can’t believe that Fox has cancelled such a great show. Yet, how many of these people are willing to do anything to save their show? If our movement is unsuccessful, it is no longer Fox’s fault. The only ones we can blame is ourselves. The ones that are willing to cry and complain and call Fox names and swear that they’re never going to watch anything Fox puts out any more. The same ones that can’t take 15 seconds to fill out a form on a petition site. The same ones who can’t take 5 minutes to donate $5 to cancer in the name of Walter Sherman in order to FIND a cure. The same ones who can’t take 10 minutes and a stamp to mail out a map or a letter to Fox headquarters. But they had plenty of time to whine about how horrible Fox is and how they don’t listen to their viewers.

There is an old story about two farmers sitting on the porch, talking. On the porch with them was a dog that every few moments, would let out a painful howl. It was obvious the dog was hurting, but the dog’s owner just ignored it and kept on talking with his friend. Finally, the friend asked him why he isn’t doing anything for the dog. The farmer looked at the dog and shrugged. “He’s lying on a nail and it hurts him,” he said. The friend was confused, and asked why doesn’t the dog just move instead of howling all the time. To which the farmer replied, “Guess it doesn’t hurt him enough to move off it.”

Fox is the farmer, and the dog is The Finder fans. I do not want to be the lazy, howling dog. I hope that I’ve shown Fox that this fan is NOT going to just give up. I plan on keeping up with this blog and tweeting and mailing maps and whatever campaign we decide to do, as long as there are people who are typing “how to save the finder” in their search bars.

As I said, this is a cross-road. We can either let our momentum continue to fall, and Fox can just laugh and say “see, we knew they couldn’t keep it up”, or we can show them that we’re serious. If anyone reading this has thought about signing the petition or mailing a map or donating $5 to help find a cure, THIS is the time to do so. Don’t be the lazy dog. Get up and do something!

Still here!

I’m still around, and still fighting to get The Finder back on the air. I hope everyone was able to have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. 🙂

The petition is going great! We’ve topped 13,300 names and still going! We are still spreading the word, still trying to get as many people as possible to sign it.

Looks like we have another mission! Operation: Like Everything! The plan is that at 8pm EST (7pm CST / 6pm MST / 5pm PST) we’re to go to the official The Finder facebook page. And start “liking” everything we can. Posts. Photos. Albums. ANYTHING you can see. We want to totally blow up their notifications all at the same time. Here’s a countdown timer to help!

Keep on fighting everyone! We can’t let the summer slump distract us from our goal. Every day there are people posting on the Finder Facebook page that they just found out about the cancellation. These are people who haven’t been in the fight with us. We need to keep informing all of our fellow fans that we are NOT giving up on this. We are going to do everything possible to let FOX know that they made a terrible mistake in cancelling one of the best shows to hit the air in years!

Keep sharing. Keep tweeting. Keep emailing. Keep fighting!
