A few weeks ago I jokingly put out on Twitter that it would be great if we could send the casting crew pancakes the day after the premiere. After all, Castle is the show that decreed pancakes are what somebody deserves for a great night!
To my surprise, last week I got a tweet from castle fan @Ninangel59 saying she found a way to deliver pancakes to the set! Hence, "THE PANCAKE PROJECT."
The cost of sending 102
pancakes to the casting crew is 300 dollars. This will include the delivery of a poster-sized thank you card. To cover the cost of pulling this off @dtreker (Ang from the castle http://12thprecinct.blogspot.com/
) is designing the card. The outside will simply say "THANK YOU..." but it will open up to become a giant poster! (About 3' x 2') The text inside is ...CASTLE (The logo) For a great night and for ALWAYS. Sincerely, The Castle fandom - with special thanks from..." which will lead into the border of photos. The border of the poster will have the names and pictures of everyone who donates. THIS ISN'T the card but it will be along the lines of this:
Because of size constraints we figured out it was 40 slots around the perimeter. So there are 20 slots at 5 dollars a piece and 20 Slots at $10. The 10 dollars get you a 160 characters message that you can you have with your name and picture.
We've got two weeks to pull this off, so it will be first come, first serve. The donation page will automatically shut down at $300. Also all pictures and messages should be sent to: Angie12thP@hotmail.com
They need to be in by SEPTEMBER 18th
or your picture space will be a Smiley face and your message will be "Thank you Castle! I loved it!"
You can donate using any major credit card - international cards, too! https://www.wepay.com/donations/The_Pancakes_Project
I KNOW this fandom can do this! The journalists who've been lucky enough to pre-screen it (WANT THAT JOB!
) have all loved it, MORE than loved it. The general consensus is that, as Always, Castle has raised the bar on broadcast tv. Sadly, the the Television Academy is in love with cable, so the least we can do is buy breakfast for the amazing people who bring us SO MANY great Monday nights.
Always was SO epic, and Judging by some of the spoilers ( if you are spoiler-free, don't worry. I'm not going say what those spoilers are) we are definitely going to have a great night on September 24th - as ALWAYS!
