We have just over two months to reach our goal so let's go! The donation page has been live for 12 days and the total amount of funds raised is currently at a paltry $25. I think we can do better than that...

The only way to get to $2258 is if you chip in - every little bit helps.

Tied with 4 votes each, Friday July 24 - Sunday July 26 and Friday Aug 28 - Sunday Aug 30 are the winners of the TOS Marathon Internet Viewing poll.

I'll make a post listing every episode description and you can reply with how much you will be pledging for each episode you watch. There will also be a live discussion/party post for open for each weekend as we watch it together on Star Trek's YouTube channel. (I will be watching the episodes in order but if you'd like, you can watch them in any order.)

I said previously that the top vote five would go into a final selection poll, but now I don't feel it's necesacry and would only complicate things since we only have two months until our September 8 deadline.

With 41% of your votes, we will be supporting Habitat for Humanity International.

Habitat for Humanity International seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses together in partnership with families in need. Habitat has built more than 300,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1.5 million people in more than 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter. Habitat is founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety.

Hello all you lovely giving people! I've been churning out a handful of things for this community so that you can all go pimp it like crazy. Under the cut are fancy things like a logo and link buttons, and everybody's favorite extreeeem macro.

If you are interested in meeting fans in your area and getting together to watch the marathon together, comment with your location in this post.

There is no specific date in place. What's good for you?

Our first goal is to raise at least $2258 by September 8, 2009. In the alternate universe presented in Star Trek, the USS Enterprise will launch from Riverside Shipyard in 2258 and Star Trek: The Original Series debuted on NBC September 8, 1966.

The inaugural event will be a weekend of marathon viewing of TOS. You will pledge a dollar amount for every episode you watch, and it will be put toward our $2258 goal. This is a great meet-up opportunity! Comment with your location and when you're available and something can be worked out.

Since this is a fan-driven effort, you get to choose which charity we will support. To start this off, please vote for one of the following organizations listed that have been previously supported by Star Trek-related cast members. The top five will go into the final selection poll.
