Good afternoon to you all...I've had a busy day today and I think I bring good news! Let's start with everyone's favorite...the numbers!
Scramble Network - Nick was the one that got us involved in the very beginning! Thanks!
SaveVeronicaMars.tv - Gil has been very cooperative with us and is simultaneously posting updates on his website as well. Gil has also informed us that there is another important campaign going on. On June 12, everyone should go to iTunes and purchase the final episode of Veronica Mars (called "The Bitch is Back"). This way, it will send a message directly to Warner Bros! Some fans want June 14, but I agree that June 12 is better. This will give them some time to let that campaign sink in, and then they will be hit by our delivery on June 14 for a double whammy! Regardless, check back here for updates in case the day changes. For those of you who don't know where to go here is the link.
Please support these folks. Without them, the word would not have spread!
2) I got lucky today at one of the Sam's I visited and found an extra 600 bars of Snickers Almond. That makes our total to be a whopping 4848 Snickers Almond bars that will be sent to CW! What a perfect number to make a statement!
So, that makes our total as of today:
4848 Snickers Almond Bars - nearly 550 pounds of Snickers!
1920 Mars Bars from England - nearly 300 pounds of Mars bars!
350 Pounds of Marshmallows
= Thats almost 1200 pounds of confectionery give or take a few pounds!
Four Sam's Clubs in the Houston area are now completely out of stock of Snickers Almond! Wow!
I scoped out a Wal-Mart today for some Marshmallows and by tonight, we might be able to get an extra 25-30 pounds. I realize thats not much, but we will buy everything that's available on the shelf. If anyone else is buying marshmallows/Snickers Almond from other grocery stores and shipping them, let me know so I can post about it!
I also stopped by Kinko's and placed an order for 100 flyers of the assorted images and posters that were sent to me. Rather than make one big poster of only one of the images, I decided to use all the images that were sent to me since they were all so nicely created. We will stick certain ones on the Marshmallow cases, while the general "Save Veronica Mars" flyers to the candy boxes. We hope that this way each of the employees at CW will have one in their hand! I wish we could capture the look on their faces when they get it!
As far as finding a distributor in Los Angeles is concerned, it seems that everyone that I contacted will open Monday morning. I will contact them again (if you know of others, please submit!) on Monday and see if they have any of the items we are looking for. The great thing about finding it in L.A. is that the delivery will happen relatively quickly. Now, just finding one is going to the hard part!
Lastly, some fans have suggested we include a letter or statement to CW to attach to the shipment. Not to worry! Nick at Scramble Network has already been working on this for the past several days, so there will definitely be many copies of that letter attached to the shipment explaining everything and the meaning of all of the items.
That's all for now friends! We'll be posting some pictures soon of the Snickers Almond bars. Monday is our big day as we will be posting pictures (and maybe some video) of the shipment being put together! Keep up the good work! Thanks!
