Maybe you've already heard of it: We have a thing going on called "150,000 Signatures". There was a girl who had the idea to buy a copy of TFiOS and have it signed by 150,000 nerdfighters before sending it to John Green, so we can say thank you. A lot has changed, but that's the general idea.
You can read all about it here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/150000signatures in the "about" section. If you want to attend, please join the Facebook group.
If you'd like to participate, please add your name in this spreadsheet (sorted by location): http://dft.ba/-spreadsheet
After adding your name to the list you can head over to our official forum and get involved in the discussion: http://signatures.tyrope.nl
There is still a lot we have to discuss. ATM we try to get in contact with Hank, because that would help a lot. But what I can tell you now is that we want to give this book to John on January 10th 2013, because that's the first anniversary of TFiOS. To make this work we'll have to do our signings not later than November. But since Phillip pointed out that John will be in Berlin in September I think we can get a lot of work done by this time, because a lot of you will be in Berlin. Of course we would have to do this secretly, because we don't want to spoil it for John (;
Anyways, if you are interested, please join the forum and add your name in the spreadsheet. And contact me if you need anything!
Wow, thats gonna be so awesome!
BTW: Can we agree upon ONE abbreviation for "Niedersachsen"? xD
I changed it (;
Wow, that's so cool! But I won't be in Berlin, so probably I won't be able to sign it...
Nah, that shouldn't be a problem. I'll mail a sheet to sign on to the nerdfighters who won't be able to come to Berlin and we'll just pass it around until we get all of their signatures and then I'll send all the signatures to the US.
Ok, that's great! So is there any place were I should sign up or something? I can't imagine just adding my name to the list will help ;)
Well, to have all the names on the list helps us to have an overview. But of course it would be great if you'd join the Facebook group and the forum to get involved (links above).
that sounds so awesome! I'll definitely join the forum!
Aww, that's cool! See you there (:
Hey, I am one the REP, too! But I haven't been as active as you...sorry! (screw you eams). I am going to reading in Munich , so I could collect all the signatures of the people there, maybe even of the just John-Green-Readers and not nerdfighers, because we are still missing a lot of people til we have 150.000. Maybe we can find someone else to collect sigantures in Frankfurt and Hamburg (In case you can't make there)? What do you think?
I'm so free as to answer for Ling real quick :P (sorry, I do things like that. She probably knows by now...)
Ling is planning on coming to Hamburg, and if she can't make it, I would still be there (with being a Hamburgian and all), but - as far as my limited knowledge goes - we still would need someone for Frankfurt.
SO: Who's up for the task, people? :D
Awesome sauce, Lisbeth (:
Ah, it's great that you'll be in Munich, Judith. And I think it's a good idea to get signatures from the "just" readers as well. because yeah, you're right, it's still a long way until we have all 15o.ooo signatures :/
