The Fandom Gives Back

Author: Tempation Staff // Category:
Hey everyone! I know its been awhile since an episode, but rest assured one is the works and will be released as soon as is possible.

Meanwhile I'm sure you've heard of this already but just in case you haven't, the whole fandom is banding together for a good cause. Here is the official letter from the wonderful women who have organised this incredible effort:

Dear friends, fans, and followers,

Did you know that every year over 200,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with a form of childhood cancer? We cannot ignore this shocking statistic impacting the youth of the world, and we certainly hope that you won’t either. We need your help.

Starting Nov. 15th, through Nov. 20th, you will have the opportunity to help in the fight against childhood cancer. We haven't set a monetary goal because we're firm in the belief that no matter what we set, you will surpass it.

Running this virtual stand is the biggest challenge we have ever faced – the challenge of raising awareness of just how serious the epidemic of childhood cancer is.

The money raised will go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer, a 501(c)3 public charity, to fund childhood cancer research projects. The mission of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily to support research into new cures and treatments; to encourage and educate others, especially children, to raise money for childhood cancer by holding their own lemonade stands; and to expedite the process of finding new cures and treatments, and bringing them to children with cancer now.

Please help support our efforts and this critically important cause by making a contribution through our virtual stand. You can make your donation online by visiting our Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Fundraising page: Twilight Fandom Gives Back Donation Page.

You can also help us by passing this message along to others who may be interested in visiting our virtual stand, or holding one of their own!
Thank you for your support.

I'm not quite sure how Temptation will be participating in this coming together but I, Caitlin, will be auctioning off a little EPOV of my new story. I highly encourage everyone to participate in someway, if you cannot afford to give me money, then help spread the word. Any contributions, be it time, money, or support is welcome. Thank you all for reading!

PS: Yes, we are still alive and a new episode will be out very soon.

Support Stacie Auction

Author: Tempation Staff // Category: ,
'Sup guys!

I'm here checking in from an unnervingly sunny London to remind/inform/harrass y'all about the September Support Stacie Auction

Basically, the Support Stacie Auction is an awesome panfandom fundraiser where the good and great of fanfic authors come together to try and raise money for a woman called Stacie who suffers from ovarian and breast cancer:

In March 2007, Stacie Holeman, known as truelovepooh in fandom and on LJ, was diagnosed with breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Because she was within the 90-day enrollment period of her new medical insurance, Stacie has been forced to join the ranks of millions of uninsured Americans. (read the rest)

The Way It Works
Author X pledges to write a fanfic of Y number of words and put it up for auction. Readers bid for it. The reader with the highest bid is then allowed to produce a list of specifications for the fic, which the author has to comply to. The end product: A totally personalised fanfic for the highest bidder by one of their favourite authors and lots of money raised for charity.

It works like any auction- you only pay if your bid wins. In other words, if you part with your hard earned cash you can be safe in the knowledge that not only are you helping an excellent cause, but you'll also receive an excellent piece of fanfiction as a reward! A pretty win/win situation, I think you'll agree!

If you're still not convinced:

Auction FAQ
List of Twilight Authors participating <------CHECK THIS OUT!!! There are so many big names! (scroll down to the bottom past the other fandoms)
I know this might all seem a bit surreal. It might feel odd to think about donating money to somebody you've never met, merely based on the words of other people you've never met, but I urge you to look past that and attempt to make a contribution, however small. It all goes to a fantastic, reputable, above-board cause, and if you win you get a piece of quality fanfiction in return for your money!

So whether you've always wanted withthevampsofcourse and jandco to write something especially for YOU, or would sell your soul for a little bit more from the creator of Priestward, the auctions are there to meet your wildest fanfic desires! Go along NOW and check them out!

much love
