Save ‘Shadowhunters’ x The Trevor Project
Listen up and gather close, Shadowfam – it’s time to get a game plan together.
Ever since Freeform cruelly announced the cancellation of Shadowhunters, the Shadowfam has worked tirelessly to see their adored show saved from the chopping block.
The ongoing #SaveShadowhunters campaign has seen pedicabs circling the SDCC, banners flying over Netflix headquarters, ads in Times Square, and a victorious turn at last year’s People’s Choice Awards, the results of which carry the same message: the fight isn’t over.
While the Shadowfam keeps on truckin’ like the group of valiant demon hunters they are, we’ve been talking a lot about the significance of Shadowhunters, why it deserves to continue, and why it’s a travesty that no one has snapped it up yet.
If you hadn’t realized, we’re taking matters into our own hands and working with the fandom to further the profile of the show everyday in order to tell the powers that be that we’ll keep on fighting till the happy end (when Shadowhunters is saved).
The Shadowfam raised over $24,000 for the LGBTQ+ youth charity The Trevor Project – which apparently Freeform has matched – which is an amazing achievement. We think their valiant charity efforts are a great example of why Shadowhunters needs to continue. What TV network wouldn’t want to work with a tribe of positive and dedicated people who want to make the world a better place?
We got an email from The Trevor Project earlier today that gave us our #SaveShadowhunters activity of the day. The Trevor Project said:
“Today is the last day of our fiscal year. Thank you for being part of the solution towards ending LGBTQ youth suicide. Would you consider making another generous gift before today ends?”
Wouldn’t it be a great way to show our fandom’s dedication to continue raising money for The Trevor Project? We’re asking all our fandom friends to do the following this week:
- Pitch in $1 to the #SaveShadowhunters Trevor Project campaign, and
- Find ten members of your friends, family, and community to pledge $1 to The Trevor Project.
Here’s a handy pledge letter for you to share with your loved ones to make this task easier for you:
As you know already, I’m a massive fan of the show Shadowhunters. I’ve been working to save the show since it was cancelled back in 2018. We’re still campaigning and I’ve got a favor to ask. Would you mind making a small $1 donation to The Trevor Project? It’s an amazing charity which helps LGBTQ+ youth. All you need to do is go to The Trevor Project and follow the instructions there. This show means so much to so many people, and it would mean everything to me if we could help raise money in its name for such a worthwhile cause.
This fandom cares, and we’re so proud of y’all already. We hope we can continue to spread the love for Shadowhunters through donations to The Trevor Project and help them support LGBTQ+ youth.
Thanks to Basic Shadowhunters Stuff for setting this campaign up.
