For more than five years here at F This Movie!, we have been producing a weekly podcast almost without fail -- I think we've missed maybe a week or two, but not much more than that. We have published daily content, usually more than once a day. We have created annual events like F This Movie Fest (the World's Only All-Twitter Film Festival), Scary Movie Month and Junesploitation. We have built a community together of people who love movies and who genuinely like each other, and we have done all this out of love -- love for movies, love for our fellow movie fans, love for what we have all built together. Now, after more than five years, we have to ask for something of you in return. We have to ask for your charitable donations.
We would never do this without giving you some bang for your buck. That's why on July 9, 2016, F This Movie! will be hosting an 18-hour LIVE podcast-a-thon beginning at 8 am CST to raise money for The Magnolia Tree Foundation. LISTEN as we talk about movies for 75% of an entire day! LISTEN as we consume large amounts of caffeine and hold our pee! LISTEN as we talk to you LIVE for a great cause!
The Magnolia Tree Foundation was the vision of Alexa Rodheim Cutler, teacher and water polo coach at Elk Grove High School, Elk Grove Village, Illinois, and a friend and inspiration to many of us. Alexa passed away in March of 2016 after a courageous two-year battle with triple negative, BRCA1 positive breast cancer. The mission of The Magnolia Tree Foundation is to educate and provide financial assistance to those affected by the BRCA mutation. Our mission is to raise money for the Magnolia Tree Foundation. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to help us do that.
To read more about this event or to donate early, visit our GoFundMe page and please give what you can. All proceeds go directly to the Magnolia Tree Foundation.
Check back in the coming weeks for a full schedule and lineup of very special guests! We're trying to put on a great show and make this a real event for fans of the podcast and anyone who tunes in for a worthy cause!
And don't forget to tune in to fthismovie.net on July 9 for our first ever LIVE podcast!
