We’ve spent the past few weeks debating, researching, and questioning whether or not to trust SMGO. Now that all concerns have been addressed, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. Things have been moving very slowly lately, but we hope to change that very soon.
First off, I propose the five biggest animated show fandoms relying on SMGO start working together. These are the Young Justice, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Motorcity, Tron: Uprising, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars Fandom.
Our aim this weekend (May 24th-27th) is get any of these shows that are still in the voting phase as close to 100% as possible. The YJ and GLTAS fandoms have already contributed over 300 votes to Tron and will continue to vote and spread the word. We will also start voting for Star Wars as it has recently been added to the SMGO page.
The second objective of this weekend is to get Young Justice, which is currently in the funding phase, to $100,000 (preferably even higher). Yes, this is nowhere near the $10 million goal but we are hoping that if we can get pledges to rise quickly enough during a short span of time, we will be able to attract some media attention.
Even if you have never seen an episode of Young Justice, please consider pledging. If it fails, it is very unlikely that any other show will have a chance of entering the funding phase. Also, rest assured that when the time comes, we will show you the same generosity that you showed us.
With five fandoms working towards saving each show, the average pledge per series can afford to be lower and we’ll reach our goals faster. Together, I am confident that we’ll be able to bring back all our shows.
Tag your votes and pledges #WeekendOfAction starting Friday, on twitter and tumblr, and let’s see how far we’ll get!
