so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance.
It overcomes almost everything, even nature.
-John D. Rockefeller

In addition to the enclosed material, Stargazers have spent a vast amount of time watching episodes of Star-Crossed on The CW App, online, and by purchasing them on iTunes. We have acknowledged the efforts of the advertisers by tweeting to the show’s sponsors, asking questions about their products, and letting them know the impact their commercials have made. Stargazers have even had responses from multiple sponsors, including Wells Fargo and Gatorade.
If you haven’t had the chance to see what currently stands as the season finale, do yourself a favor and experience what has caused such an uproar with fans all over the world.
We respectfully ask that you consider picking up and saving a show that is continually increasing its fan base and quickly becoming a fan favorite. Thank you for your time.
The Star-Crossed Fan Page
The Twitter Movement
This is how Star-Crossed is trending on Twitter compared to two similar shows that were both renewed.
Variety Radio Online Radio Shows
The news of the cancellation hit one week before their recap show on the season finale. However, this news did not discourage fans of the show or the radio hosts. Their finale recap reached an astounding amount of listeners, more than any of their previous shows. Even though there were no new episodes, The VRO chose to continue on with bonus shows discussing ways to help save the show and even had international callers.
Imagine the possibilities official merchandise could bring. Mass-producing t-shirts and raising the prices could pull in a huge profit, especially if a vast diversity of products were sold. The fans want the merchandise, so there is plenty of room for financial gain.
Stargazers Against Cancer
The campaign is now in it’s second run.
Another campaign, currently in the planning stages, is bracelets, that would sell for $5 each, with a planned $2,000 profit that would be donated to the American Cancer Society as well.
The Fan Video
The video received around 150 submissions including fan art, photographs of fans and video testimonials. In the end, the video had a run time of 22 minutes, showcased several international fans and explained the reasons why fans love the show. There were several countries that submitted an entry into the video. These countries include, but are not limited to, Australia, the UK, Jamaica, Sweden, India, the Czech Republic etc in addition to the United States. The reasons why fans love Star-Crossed included, but were not limited to, real world issues such as war, racial prejudices, integration, hate crimes, terrorism, and interracial couples, strong women, redemption, the diversity of evil, standing up for what you believe in, and the extended meaning of family. All of these reasons did not even include the ingenious plot lines and the complex character development.
This video has been praised by the fans as a fair representation of the show and the fandom and can be found here:
Spaghetti Dinner Night
In the pilot episode, a young Emery finds a frightened Roman in her family's shed. Cold and hungry, she offers him a blanket and a bowl of spaghetti.
Fans took photos of their spaghetti dinner and uploaded them to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and Tumblr. Spaghetti has become symbolic for saving Roman’s life. Can it do the same for Star-Crossed?
