Fans of Nick Lea, 2002
Release for the "Thank You Nick"- Campaign
The X-Files will be ending soon -- the fans are using the May
19th finale as the impetus to raise money for the favorite charities
of the X-Files stars and to pay tribute to the show.
Typically, the mainstream media writes about fans on two occasions
-- when a star is being stalked, or when some fans are dressed
in costume and made to look ridiculous at some convention or other.
That's not the majority of fans. And, as a group, we've raised
hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity over the years. That's
a story worth telling that, for some reason, is ignored.
I am coordinating the effort to honor Nick Lea (Alex Krycek) by
raising money for Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. At an X-Files
Expo, Nick told the attendees, "I just think sometimes that the
focus is a little misplaced. I would love to see everybody here
take a third of that energy and put it into their family or their
community, or the people on the street who need our help."
In keeping with that sentiment, we've set up a Web site at http://www.NickLea.com/thankyounick
that not only makes it easy for fans to donate funds, they can
also post messages and art work. They are an incredibly talented
group of people. So far we've raised over $1800.
From our site you can also link to the campaigns for David, Gillian,
Mitch, The Lone Gunmen and the cast & crew where thousands more
have been contributed to various charities. Check us out and see
what determined fans can accomplish.
