Fans Campaign to "Pay October Road Forward"

October Road fans are campaigning to save the show with a new campaign, "Pay October Road Forward."


Check out how you can help save October Road with this news from campaigner Deb Jackson:


We the fans are purchasing the first season DVD and donating to our local libraries along with donating books we no longer use to add to their inventory. This helps in [keeping down their costs and we hope will draw more viewers to this wonderful show. Some fans are even sending care packages to the troops overseas along with the season one DVD. After research, it was discovered that DVD's are a highly requested item by the soldiers. We hope this makes their days there a little more tolerable while living in the unspeakable.


This campaign has been running officially for 4 weeks now and we hear about more and more donations daily. Some wires have already picked up on this campaign and this is beginning to draw more people to join in with donating.


The fans feel that by donating DVD's in addition to helping the libraries, this will help secure more viewers for ABC network not only for this show but any lead ins they put with it. It is a win win situation for ABC if it is renewed as they get free advertising basically with the fans doing this work and we would get our show to watch weekly.

Thanks for the article to help our campaign! The Roadies are a great group of people who will do anything to save this amazing show! I can't wait to hear the announcement in May! We also need a season 2 dvd release, asap! One so we can donate to the libraries and soldiers again, so they have season 2 as well as season 1 and will be ready for season 3 when once October Road is renewed (remaining positive)! I love this show and can't wait to see where the writer's take the characters next!

Kendra, a big THANK YOU from all of us Roadies for this great post! October Road has touched the heart and soul of so many of us. Watching OR always leaves me with such a terrific feeling, it literally makes my heart smile and I'm hoping it will do the same for our most deserving guys & gals in uniform. I've already sent one dvd to a sailor serving in Kuwait, and I have one more on it's way from amazon to send out to another fine member of our armed forces. And to echo a previous post here, I'm also very proud to be a part of saving this awesome show. Long Live the Road!

The campaign is really great! I've spoken to many people who hadn't heard of the show before we began. My own local library was thrilled to recieve a copy of the dvd, as I live in an area with a recessional economy, and funds are tight to purchase new supplies. There's already a waiting list!
