  Kudos to you, PugdySmudgy!

Heidi had organized a campaign to pool funds to buy daisies through her PayPal account last month -- specifically so that those overseas and those with not a lot of money could contribute.  If you want to do that and then send them through one of the florist networks (FTD must be worldwide), then feel free to organize your own edition of the campaign, just ask whoever you buy the flowers from to have the delivery florist take a picture of them (if possible) so that you can post the picture here.  Or PM Heidi and ask her if she'll set another one up.

   Oh, I hope we can do that again.
   Real daisies, paper daisies, fabric daisies, whatever.  Daisies at all costs as long as there's a deluge!    Grin

@ FRANNIE, CHOCOLAT GILMORE, HEATHER Huh I'm losing track here ... I think the polyester daisies is the way to go, not so much sending them on our own, as POOLING our resources and buying 'a spitload' of them, in Rob's words, and we should be thinking thousands and thousands and thousands!!!! POOLING is so important I think, FIRST because we can start haggling (I tried to E-mail Oriental Trading to ask what they could do if we buy humongous quantities, but their E-mail form won't accept an address from outside the US. I'm guessing one of you guys has already come up with the same idea). SECOND because I think small boxes or separate bags or envelopes full of daisies arriving at intervals will never get the attention in the press (meaning more pressure on the actresses and the network!!!!!!!!!!) as ONE BIG BURST OF DAISIES hitting them in the face. That's why I think we should all wait a while now, at least a couple of weeks (but continuing with all the letters, petition stuff etc. of course!!!), SAVE OUR MONEY while we keep spreading the word and keep CANVASSING, at least until their is A DEFINITIVE AND COORDINATED PLAN, AND ENOUGH MONEY TO MAKE THIS TRULY EYE-CATCHING. Someone mentioned the problem of these daisies arriving in anonymous and bland post-bags. I agree, that's a problem. I believe it's important to start looking out for people living near Los Angeles (PUDGYSMUDGY?) or travelling there at some point in the near future, who could 'DO' SOMETHING with these heaps and heaps of daisies, something big enough to have the media pay attention. The Jericho's sent truckloads of nuts, we should send bags and bags and bags of daisies, but just think what EXTRA ATTENTION we could muster, if we did SOMETHING SPECTACULAR with these daisies. What if we could find, say 10 persons, who could collect the bags of daisies somewhere, then empty them all at once, outside the CW offices on the pavement fi, or even MORE SPECTACULAR, what if they were standing on the roof of a tall building and they would let these daisies fly off into the wind, all in one go, or if they were standing on a bridge and let them fly off, then float away. Of COURSE, you would have to ALERT THE MEDIA before you pulled such a STUNT, and make sure you got plenty of images yourself, to post on the web and again, send to the principal players in all this. It NEEDS TO BE BIG or we risk being written off as just a bunch of juvenile letter writers, as someone above put it, and I agree. We need to prove we can stand UNITED and give them a HUGE SIGNAL. Oh, I'm getting totally sucked into this whole thing...

I was thinking along the same lines as you, however I'm pretty sure that they may go over as littering.  We do somehow need to make a big bang!  Big boxes or bags (large numbers of them) of daisies with mandate logos mixed in might be okay as long as they all arrive at one time.  Just shipping them directly when we order probably won't.

all you have to do is erase the period atthe end, I'm pretty sure the links posted everywhere else are working.

Does this mean it's time for "projcet: Lauen." It could be more effective than "project: Alexis" because I think alot of new people has joined the mandate over the last few days.

Love the ideas!

Now - a little off topic and hopefully this won't get me snarked, but is any one else worried that people are acting like the movie is a done deal?   I think it's not good at all for people to say, "Well they're doing a movie, so I'll wait for that."   Nowhere have we seen where anyone has committed to a movie.  The fact is, pushing for Season 8 may be the only thing that gets the movie made.  I support both outcomes, but I just wanted to voice that concern.

Heather, Rob

I've been thinking all day about the daisy campaign... First we have to see if Oriental Trading will be the sponsor of our thousands of daisies.  Just like the Jericho Campaign.  They got Nuts Online to accept all the payments and they sent out thousands of Nuts in the name of The Jericho Campaign.  We need someone who has been a member on this board for a long time to write a really great letter (e-mail) about the Great 8 Mandate and the daisy campaign  to Oriental Trading to see if they are able to handle what we need and if they would do it for us.  Also we probably would like to be able to send them either stickers saying something like "From the Great 8 Mandate" to be placed outside the box  or a card to be in the box with the daisies.

If Oriental Trading  can't  handle it, I have been looking at wholesale silk flower companies online.   Maybe a smaller company might like the business and help with the campaign.    I have seen bunches of daisies on these sites for between 4.00 and 7.00.    For example see the following website:
http://www.usifloral.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1992

I have a few more sites if necessary with silk daisies at reasonable prices.

In my opinion this is probably the best way to handle it at this time.  People can order what they can afford at the company website, use their credit card or send in a payment.   No Paypal problems, or someone being responsible for all the daisies being sent...etc, etc. etc.

Has anyone else had a problem leaving a message for the CW? I have not been able to for four days, despite trying at different times of the day/evening.

I want that mailbox maxed out, so if you all are just maxing it out before I get to it, EXCELLENT, but if not, I'm bummed because I want our voice heard. I hope it doesn't mean that they are purposely not emptying the mailbox.

I've been calling it at different times of the day over the past couple of days and gotten the Full message -- just called it now, in fact, and it should have been emptied/refreshed for the day by now.  I suspect that they aren't currently checking it -- don't know why.  Could be that the person that does the checking is on vacation, could be that between Gg fans and VM fans, they're tired of checking it for a while.  We don't know.  The point is, keep trying -- and keep trying at different times of the day.  If, as I speculated above, the person that deal with the comment line is on vacation this week, the mailbox would likely then be freed up sometime on Monday.

I committed a typo.  I corrected the misteak in the Welcome Post, but it's still:

http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/great8mandate

BTW, this misteak is a great opportunity to ask everybody -- Please put the petition link into your siggies, not just here, but more importantly, at any and all other MBs that you post to, even non-Gg ones.  "Sign the Save Gilmore Girls Petition at http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/great8mandate and then spread the word to get as many people as you can to sign it."  Stuff like that.  That'll help deal with anymore tighpoes.
