Org Work


We are proud to share that the final donations from Fandom Rocks have been delivered to the charities chosen by the fans for this campaign.

Fans raised a total of $3350 USD during the campaign which means the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the American Cancer Society each received a check for $1675 USD. The donation to the American Cancer Society was delivered to the local office in Champaign, Illinois, in memory of Kim Manners. Supernatural fans wanted to express once more how much Kim is loved and will be missed.

Everyone behind Fandom Rocks would like to thank you for your support over the past few years. It has been an amazing experience working with you to help charities around the world. We have gained tremendous personal experiences when communicating with our charities via email, phone, and even on road trips to see our donations made in person. Please accept our sincerest thanks.

We’re closing the doors now.

Keep rockin’.

Hello, Hello.

I bring happy and sad tidings. In just a few weeks, we will officially dissolve the non-profit corporation we created for Fandom Rocks. However, in that same time frame we will make our final donation to the charities you selected. So far, everyone out there has helped raise $3,000 USD. Can we add some on top of that to make the donations, say, an even $2,000 for each charity?

All of the receipts from our auction!
Check out all of the receipts from our auction! The auction was a huge part of the success of the fifth campaign.

To try to make that happen, we are offering that remaining auction items that were not won or paid for, plus a couple of DVDs a fan generously contributed to the cause.

For every $10 you donate between now and February 14, you will receive one entry in a random drawing to win your choice of the three sets of prizes pictured below.

  • Donate $10 = 1 entry
  • Donate $20 = 2 entries
  • Donate $50 and we will give you an extra entry! $50 = 6 entries!

And so on. Thank you for your support for the last few years. I am very proud we lasted this long and came together as a fandom to help a number of charities.

Please help us one last time to make the last campaign for Fandom Rocks a success!

Here is one more idea brought to us by a fan at the convention. (Thanks, Sandy!) Join our team at iWon and play games! The Team Challenge at iWon puts Fandom Rocks in the running for a prize of $10,000. (Second and third place also win a good amount.) If Fandom Rocks were to win a prize, the money would go into the campaign fund not the administrative fund. Here are the FAQs from iWon on their Team Challenge:

How do I participate in the IWON Team Challenge?
Either Join a team from one of our National Charity Teams and help a national charity win $10,000 or create your own Member-Created Team and get your friends to help you win $10,000 for your favorite cause!

Who will win the IWON Team Challenge?
The teams with the most coins will win each month. At the end of each month there will be one $10,000 winner for the National Charity Teams and one $10,000 winner for the Member-CreatedTeams.

How do I earn coins for my Team?
All of the coins you earn after joining a Team are immediately added to your Team’s Coin balance. Best of all, you can still use those coins to enter Sweepstakes and advance on your IWON Game Boards!

Will I win the money if my Team wins the IWON Team Challenge?
No, IWON will send checks directly to the organizations, beneficiaries, or the Team Creators.

What are the limitations on earning coins for the contest?
You can earn up to 1,000,000 coins for playing Casino games, 200,000 coins for regular coin-awarding games, 20,000 coins from Ask Search, and 3,000 coins from using Tell-a-Friend. IWON reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons or teams determined to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the contest.

The officer elections officially closed on August 1st. Congratulations to our Board of Directors and welcome aboard to the new folks. The original Frontliners cannot express how much we appreciate you joining us in this venture. We hope other Fandom Rockers will chime in with a congratulations and welcome, too.
