Postcards for Stephenie: Pinoy Twilighters, show your support!


















Twilight Coven Philippines is calling on all Filipino Twilighters to show your support and appreciation for Stephenie Meyer by participating in our Postcards for Stephenie Project!

Showcase your creativity by making your very own homemade postcard. Write your message to Stephenie on the card, then send it in! Your card will be included in a special Postcard Book that will be sent to Stephenie through her publisher's local representative. We aim to collect 108 postcards by November 2, so encourage all your Twilighter friends to participate as well.

If you're interested in participating in the project, please take note of the following guidelines:

1. Postcards must measure 4.25 inches high by 6 inches wide. All cards must be landscape-oriented.

2. You can use any material to create your postcard, but Board (200-220 gsm) is preferable.

3. Make sure to leave a 1-inch space on the left side of your postcard for the binding -- don't write any part of your message or draw any crucial part of your design on that space. Take note of the orientation and dimensions in guideline #1.

4. You can use any medium to decorate your postcard -- you can paint on it, draw on it, glue pieces of colored paper on it, or create digital designs that you will print on the card -- it's up to you.

5. Use the front side of the card for your main design. Put the "To" (Stephenie Meyer) and "From" (your name) information on this side. No need to put any addresses.

6. Use the other side of the card for your message. Messages should be addressed to Stephenie personally. You can tell her how her works or how she herself has inspired you; you can tell her why you like Twilight and what it means to the Filipino fans; you can share significant stories that happened when you read the Twilight books; you can also tell her that you support her, and if you've read Midnight Sun, you can let her know how much you like it and how you would like to be able to read the whole story someday. Write anything you want, but no negative messages, please -- there is no place for that in this Support Campaign -- we will exclude any cards with negative messages. Make sure your message is written in English.

7. Our object is to be able to collect a minimum of 108 postcards (to correspond to Edward's age this year) by November 2, 2008, but we'll be very happy if we exceed that number. You can keep track of the status of the project on our website. Encourage your friends who are also fans of the Twilight Saga to send their own postcards.

8. You have several options for sending in your postcards: bring them during the designated Drop-Off Dates that will be announced, or you can mail them to us.

MAILING INSTRUCTIONS

A. Insert your postcard in a separate envelope to ensure that it stays intact and clean when it is delivered. Make sure you pack the postcard securely so that it doesn't get damaged in transit.

B. Write the following information on a separate sheet of paper and include it in the envelope as well: Your Real Name, Your Contact Number, Your Age, Your E-mail Address, Your TCP Forum Username (if applicable), and a list of Twilight fangroups you belong to (if applicable).

C. Seal the envelope and write "PLEASE DO NOT FOLD" somewhere on the front (especially if you're mailing this via the regular post office).

D. Mail it to:

Twilight Coven Philippines
c/o Fandom Café
Unit G-09 Regalia Park Towers
150 P. Tuazon Blvd., Cubao, Quezon City 1109
Philippines

E. We will e-mail you a confirmation once we have received your postcard. If you are mailing it, please do so before October 25 in case it gets delayed in the post office.

---

9. Since this is a project for Filipino Twilighters, we will be accepting cards from Filipino fans all over the Philippines and abroad. If you are currently located outside Metro Manila, please check the mailing instructions.

10. You can also personally drop-off your postcard at Fandom Café, it is open from 10AM - 9PM from Monday to Sunday. Please be sure to still follow Mailing Instructions A and B and write our mailing address outside of the envelope. Click here for directions to Fandom Café.

We'll be sending the postcard book to Stephenie along with a video documentary of all the Twilight events here in the Philippines. They will be sent to her c/o Hachette Book Group USA's Philippine Representative, who has kindly agreed to be our liaison to Stephenie's management/publisher in the U.S.

After the project is finished, we will also be raffling off these items graciously provided by Hachette Book Group USA (Philippines) among those who sent in their postcards:

(8 winners) "Twilight" Movie Tie-In Edition (Mass Market Paperback) plus a Twilight button pin

(2 winners) "The Host" (Trade Paperback Edition) plus a Twilight button pin

Members of Twilight Coven Philippines who sent in postcards will also be eligible for a special raffle to win:

(2 winners) 2 tickets to the November 20 By Invitation Only Premiere of "Twilight" by Viva International Pictures [details for the screening are subject to change] plus a Twilight button pin

To join Twilight Coven Philippines, please register at our Forum.  

Only Philippine residents are eligible for the raffle, but Filipinos who reside outside of the Philippines can still send their postcards for inclusion in the Book.

You can further show your support for the project by posting this banner along with a link to the guidelines.

    I was wondering if you could make another batch of postcards that you will send this December or any month that you like,'cause many of us ( mostly my classmates + me. :]] ) saw the post only yesterday due to our tight schedule at school we didn't even have our sem break. We were planning to make our postcards and mail it to you. We are hoping that you will understand us.

    God Bless, Thank you. :]]

  22. elitebuckeroo said...
     

    yeah.. I agree with jaira.. Is there any way that we can have another Batch.. just a suggestion.. I know it's hard to find ways but I hope we can have one... ;D ™
