Messages From the Island: A Call Out to LOSTies

I am turning over this entry to share a lovely, heartfelt project 
 with any and all LOSTies who stumble across this post.
A friend came up with the idea and I encourage
everyone to show their love of LOST and Damon Lindelof
and participate!

When he suddenly left the Island (otherwise known as the Twitterverse) last year, Damon Lindelof definitely left a void in the (virtual) lives of Lostfans all over the world. This is a fan-driven project aimed at countering all the negativity that (presumably) contributed to his decision to leave!

The goal is simple: To fight hate with love. Are you dying to tell Damon how much you miss him? How much you love him and how awesome he is? Do you want to tell him that no matter how vocal those Twitter 'haters' may be, adoring and admiring fans easily outnumber them 4,815,162,342 to 1? Has the lack of his snappy comebacks to Fancy Feast's tweets turned you into a disgruntled dog lover? Or do you merely miss his obsession with Justin Bieber's yellow spikey hat? Here's your chance to send him a message of love and positivity!

Here's how it'll happen:

1) If you're game, tear a piece of regular letter-sized paper into half, and that one half will be your canvas. Write on it whatever you want to tell Damon. Pour your heart out. Include where you're from to let him know how geographically diverse his fan base is. Get creative - draw pictures, color it, or whatever else your muse inspires you to come up with... as long as it fits ONE half-piece of paper.

2) Mail your labor of love to:

Messages from the Island
P.O. Box 15032
Beverly Hills, CA 90209
United States of America

3) I will compile them, stuff them in a big bottle, and get the bottle to Damon.

4) Damon reads your messages. He feels all the love and support. He is overwhelmed to a bundle of joy-filled tears. Happiness will ensue. Unicorns and rainbows. All will be right in the world.

There will be absolutely NO NEGATIVITY in this bottle - I will screen each message before putting them in the bottle to make sure that it is 100% troll-proof!

Interested? Then get to work! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! Please get your messages to me by Wednesday March 12th, 2014. The bottle will be corked after that for delivery!

Thank you... Namaste, and good luck!


Messages from the Island was delivered to Damon Lindelof at Paleyfest!
From all accounts, he was thrilled.
