Save Jericho

International Fan Campaign for Jericho : Seeking International Fans - Spread the Word!

Zajo & Sisbullroarer have been working hard to bring the International Fans into the Campaign to find Jericho a new home. To date we have connected a number of International Fans with US Fans to have letters mailed in a timelier and cost saving manner. This effort is ongoing with a core group of US fans who have volunteered to mail letters written by our International Fans.

We have not stopped with the mailing campaign, however. In the process of setting up the mail campaign, we were contacted by a few individuals who have been working on the Forums and Sites dedicated to Jericho in their country. Given that the US Campaign is also focusing on the Media, Zajo & Sisbullroarer decided to take the International Media Campaign to the next level. We have now entered what we now call Phase 2 of the International Fan Campaign for Jericho.

On JerichoNet we have set up an International Page of threads for each country that we know airs Jericho and/or has a Jericho fan base with already documented media connections. We are currently seeking fans from these countries to be the liaison with their nation's forums and sites to promote the Jericho Campaign there. These individuals will take the information from the US and post it on their nation's sites, translating the information if necessary. We already have liaisons set up in Canada, Romania, Spain, Belgium & Germany as well as one individual who can translate into both French and Spanish.

We are currently looking for liaisons to these countries:

Finland
France
Ireland
Russia
UK

These countries do not yet have threads set up but we would love to add them with some help:

Afghanistan
Australia
Brazil
Greece
Holland
India
Iraq
Israel
Italy
Malaysia
Maldives
Netherlands
New Zealand
Norway
Nigeria
Pakistan
Philippines
Poland
Portugal
Saudi Arabia
Slovakia
Venezuela
Switzerland
Peru

We know there may be more countries out there - let us know and we will add them to the list! smile.gif

We are also looking for individuals who can assist with translating into any number of languages, including Spanish, French & German as well as any language spoken in any of the countries listed above. We may need multiple translators in some languages due to the number of countries that speak those languages.

The first step the Liaisons will take is getting the information about the general campaign onto the websites. They will focus on the rest of Phase 2 and contacting the media outlets in their nation to get the campaign into the forefront there. The more that Nancy Tellem sees the size of the fan base not only in the US but also abroad, the greater the impact on the pursuit for Jericho's new home.

Please contact Zajo & Sisbullroarer if you are interested in helping with the International Fan Campaign. We also welcome any additional ideas that can be initiated to further involve the International Fans.

Thank you! smile.gif
