Liz Pardue, who runs the "Glowy Box" TV blog and who is spearheading the campaign by tele-bloggers to show support for the WGA, sent out this missive:
just heard from United Hollywood that the fan campaign they've been working on is live!
Here's what they have to say:
"Spread the word! One buck sends a box of 12 pencils to a mogul. We're pooling everyone's money to buy the pencils from a "green"manufacturer who uses wood from sustainable forests.
If the moguls refuse to accept our truckloads of pencils, we'll donate them to schools and non-profits that deal with children's literacy.
Hopefully, we will indeed have truckloads to deliver. But only if we all spread the word."
I'm not a big one for mass mailing campaigns, but this sounds extremely well thought-out to me.
So...get out there and spread the word!

You can click on the pencil - which I've anthropormophized by giving it the name "Old Number Two" (from 'The Prisoner') - to take you to the information about the pencil campaign!
