Something truly amazing
April 24, 2011 - Pam Rodgers
In a previous blog, I mentioned that I follow @LittleChuckFan on twitter. She is a 10-year-old from Virginia and is “twitter famous” because her only claim to fame is being the biggest Chuck fan. She has met the cast and helped with campaigns to save to the show, she is one busy 10 year old! But the really amazing thing has nothing to do with the show at all. Using twitter and polling all of her Chuck fan followers, she has raised more than $12,000 for St. Jude.
I donated right away and watched as more and more donations flowed in. Apparently last year she raised $5,210 (I was still twitter oblivious at that point), and she started out this year with a goal to raise that much and again and maybe pass it. Then with six days to go she hit $6,000 and was overjoyed that she had more than fulfilled her goal. Then the money just kept coming in. It was amazing to witness (through the internet of course).
The really cool thing was that the cast and crew of Chuck got involved. Several retweeted the link to encourage people to donate. Most notably, @LittleChuckFan’s favorite actress, Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah Walker on Chuck) retweeted the link several times and even sent out a congratulatory tweet when all was said and done. It was inspiring to see her and all the others get involved with such a wonderful cause.
The Chuck fan base is amazing — to raise $12,220 for such a worthy cause is incredible.
