The following letter is from the creator of the Facebook page ‘Save The Circle, Send A Crystal’ He has asked I share it with the Secret Circle Family. So, Here it is:
I am hoping to get more news about all the support the
Make-A-Wish, Save-A-Wish is probably the best chance of our show being renewed
or picked up, while supporting a great cause. Let’s try to donate to this
charity and show us fans not only love the show, but also love children and
their wishes while fighting for their lives. I think all the other things we
are doing is amazing as well, but nothing like this has been done in the past.
For fans to gather together for a cause (Make a Wish Foundation) to show how
much we care for that charity, while hoping a network will see that the power
of us Secret Circlefans, is the power to make a wish come true. In a way we are
doing magic, and hopefully our wish will come true while providing wishes to
these precious children in their time of need.
This was an amazing idea with such great and loving
“binding” of TSCfans. Just imagine even if TSCdoes not become renewed or picked up by a
network, this charity has already raised a lot of money, I believe the producer
or writer donated $20,000 when the charity “Make-A-Wish,
Save-A-Witch” started. If you google about the $20,000 donation, you can
see exactly if it was the writer or producer. No other fans of a show being
cancelled has provided this kind of support to children in their time of need,
to show how much we care about them and hope that networks see that as much as
we care about TSC, we are doing great things for a great
charity. I am assuming all the people donating are not just doing it to save
the show, but behind the fact we want to show how much we support the show, the
more important factor is these amazing children with an “inner” magic
that is keeping them alive and the money we donate is creating a
“spell” to provide that wish they so long for, hopefully the networks
will also be “spellbound” by our amazing TSCfans are and how much we are doing to
save the show, but more importantly while wanting our “wish” granted,
we actually are granting so many wishes to those in need.
I just love how much TSCfans globally have united for this cause,
even knowing that our show may not make it. We still care about this loving
children and their wishes. We will “cast a spell” and hopefully bring
healing energy of the power of a “crystal” to this children and
miracles can happen and dreams will come true for the children.
Karma is a powerful thing, and I believe just donating for the
children, will pay us back in the fact a network will realize no other
“binding” of fans for a show have done this kind of thing before.
It just goes to show that TSChas amazing, loving, undeniably
“bound” fans. Wow, I am just so happy to see us doing something so
great, all because we share the love for the show, and want to spread that love
to the children who are needing “magic” in their lives.
Thank you all for the support of this group, I know we have been
growing and I hope it continues, because all the fansites, petitions, items
being sent, letters, etc…those are filled with such passion.
The Make-A-Wish, Save-A-Witch campaign has filled my heart with
joy, I knew TSCfans were amazing and strong, but beyond
that we are passionate and therefore we want to help make wishes come true.
Chance Harbor may return, but for now TSCfans are creating magic of our own, magic
to provide wishes, to help those in need. It would be a sad thing for a network
not to see the devotion us TSCfans have and that we CAREenough to help those in need, even if a
network choses to not grant our “wish”. At least TSCglobal fan community will be remembered
for helping out so many wishes for the angels on earth that need them.
So really if TSCnever returns, it will always be something those we helped with
this campaign, and those children will always remember how much devotion TSCfans had for a show that was only around
for one season. When they smile, and fight for survival, we have truly created
magic by donating to this cause and we know that we are doing positive things
without caring if the show is not returned to us.
I am so proud of all of us and the amazing passion we have for the
show and for these children “wanting a wish” to come true. We are not
even fighting for our lives, like these precious children. So in the end if
Karma doesn’t come full “circle” in terms of the show being renewed
or picked up. It will come in the form of a smile on a child’s face when their
“wish” comes true, and hopefully 20/20 or Ellen, someone in the media
realizes how amazing TSCfanbase is and that no matter what the outcome, we made
“wishes” come true and we brought a smile to the children in the
“Make-A-Wish” foundation. Love is a powerful thing and our donations
not only enforce the love we have for TSC, but the love we have for those in need,
and to bring some sunshine into their lives.
AMAZING, just AMAZING!!! Out of all the shows I have strived and
combined with other fans to save, TSCfans have blew me away with the
outpouring of support for the show, but more for the fact that we care for
these childrens dreams and wishes to be granted…..and that is true magic at
work. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Here is information on the campaign and a great article regarding TSCfans being “bound” and we are a
I almost want to cry thinking about those children and the fact we
have united in a way that brings others wishes to light and a smile to their

It’s a tough time of the year to be a TV fan. With Upfronts just around the corner, the major TV networks (and the little ones) are busily shaking down their schedules, eying new pilots and ditching under-performing acts from their slate in preparation for Fall.
Among the casualties this year is the CW’s freshman series The Secret Circle, which was unceremoniously shown the door a day after its season finale episode ‘Family’ hit the air. There’s no real way to politely cancel a TV show, but Secret Circle fans are particularly outraged this this under-performer managed to out-perform two other ‘bubble shows’ (Nikita, Hart of Dixie) the CW decided to hang on to as part of their 2012 schedule – and still get canceled.
Twitter is currently ablaze with indignation. The Secret Circle has a large, passionate and well-connected online fan base and they are not taking the news lying down. The show title trended world-wide following the cancellation news, and topped Spoiler TV’s popular ‘Which Canceled Show Would You Bring Back?’ poll. In addition, several online petitions have begun to attract signatures in the tens of thousands, along with several letter-writing campaigns to CW President Mark Pedowitz. Some fans are also currently questioning if the show might continue on another medium such as Netflix, or another network such as ABCFamily or Syfy.
Long shots? Perhaps, but the noise is a testament to the show’s enduring popularity, and it seems the furore is not about to die down any time quickly.
Got a fan campaign, website or hashtag you want others to know about? Share it in the comments section below.
[Editor’s Note: I began reporting on The Secret Circle before the pilot episode aired last year. The show was a particular favorite of mine, and I have enjoyed every minute spent writing about it and sharing news and opinions with fans over Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. I am also deeply indebted to those cast members who generously gave their time through a series of regular interviews, including Adam Harrington, Gale Harold, Chris Zylka and Louis Hunter.]
From the moment the creepy music started playing the “Pilot” was lit. We were “Bound” together by something magical and we no longer felt like a “Loner”. We were creeped out when we met “Heather” and as we saw Abaddon “Slither” we knew we’d “Wake” next week to find Nicks death “Masked” by more questions. We weren’t even an inch below “Beneath” the surface of what happened 16 years ago when the dark “Balcoin” magic was revealed. Would Cassie fall pray to the “Darkness”. Every Thursday we felt “Fire and Ice” as we “Witness”ed the magic of the circle and were on the edge of our seats when the truth of the power of the “Medallion” came into play. We wanted Cassie to be Adam’s (or Jake’s) “Valentine” and with the “Return” of Blackwell we knew how “Lucky” we were to have Jake back from the witch hunters and Faye’s epic one liners. Little did we know there was a “Curse” upon us. The CW didn’t care about the “Sacrifice” we made on Thursday nights for a show that to us shone like a “Crystal”. The ratings went up when we found out Nick was the “Traitor” and when we squealed at the sight of “Prom” magic with Adam and Melissa and even though we won’t be able to visit Chance Harbor every Thursday anymore the fandom has become a ” Family”. Even though the circle is unbound doesn’t mean we are not connected!
