|We didn't really have time to announce this as it was all very last minute, but The Signal was asked to take part in this *massive* cross fandom fundraising effort that was broadcast yesterday (Sat 23rd Feb) here:
Someone did flag it up on Whedonesque, but we really didn't get a chance to advertise this before hand (this was around a 72 hour turnaround from invitation to submitting a pre-recorded bit - all in the midst of the final stages of Season 6 Episode 1, so big thanks to Anna who co-ordinated it and Jutta who edited it)
Simply amazing stuff. Initiated by the Harry Potter fandom (and obviously Potter heavy), but involving all sorts of folk gathered together for a common humanitarian cause, lots of Firefly love in there too, even some brand new Firefilk that I'd never come across before.
The show is available to listen to/watch all week and managed to raise $34K in around 6 hours while on air.
I have no idea where our little contribution appeared in the show, but we're listed among the participants, which is really nice.
Have a look, donate what you can if you haven't already and marvel at the power of fans.
