Plant A Tree... Save A Show....
Okay, this morning I posted a YouTube of one of the cutest TV couples (Jim & Pam from The Office)and now I'm going to post my other favorite TV couple, Marin and Jack from Men In Trees....



This is such an awesome show and it's been so abused by ABC. Still there's a loyal group of fans who are hellbent on seeing it survive and go on to a third season.

The post below is regarding the efforts of the fans on the part of the show. I think that it's so moving that I wanted to share it.

I found a TV news website mention of the MIT Plant it Forward tree
plan. It is about the plan that the fans are using to push the suits
into renewing the show for another season. Here's the link:

If Yahoo truncates the link above, just copy and paste all the lines
into your brownse.

For those who cannot read the news story, I have copied it below.

Men In Trees: Plant It Forward Campaign!

Plant it Forward Campaign to save Men In Trees:

A large group of fans from the popular
ABC.com Men In Trees message
board has organized a campaign, currently underway, to plant food
trees in less-fortunate countries. This is being done in honor of an
ABC primetime show that the fans will go lengths to save - Men In
Trees. 3,000 trees have been contributed so far. Their goal is 5,000.

The food tree campaign is to encourage ABC to renew Men In Trees for
a third season and encourage them to promote the show. "ABC moves
around the time slot with the frequency of a CB radio," reports Sally
Johnson. "The network hasn't given the show a fair shake yet. They
seldom promote it, but with meaningful encouragement from fans, that
can change."

TV writers and critics agree: "...considering ABC's track record with
Men in Trees ˜ 234 time slots in two years! ˜ I'm not holding my
breath," writes TV Guide commentator, Michael Ausiello. The "little
show with a lot of heart" as it bills itself, has received praise
from many critics.

5,000 food trees can produce up to 50 million pounds of food for
hungry people over the lifespan of the trees. Each food tree costs $1
and is tax deductible. They are being planted through the non-profit
organization
treesforlife.org. A certificate of contribution is given
to each donor. These certificates will be presented en masse to ABC's
Primetime Program Director, Stephen McPherson, at the conclusion of
the campaign.

"We believe that, in the end, our Plant it Forward campaign will show
ABC how devoted Men in Tree fans can be and how many fans there could
be if they just promote the show and settle on a consistent time
slot," explains lead organizer, Liz Herdade, who goes by the screen
name CatinTrees. "No show can possibly withstand that over time,
regardless of high acclaim. We're pleased to be changing this by
contributing food, trees and clean air."

Johnston adds,"When we reach 5,000 trees, we will distribute a press
release with the goal of bringing exposure to Men in Trees." She
points out, "Somebody has got to promote the show. We prefer ABC do
that, and eventually we'll convince them, but in the meantime, we
will kick up some glamour dust for our show."

Take Care,

Sal


So, if there are any Men In Trees fans out there who want to help, or just want to help out because the cause in itself is such a good one, please join in!
