After BBC Sherlock’s phenomenal success at the Emmys, Steven Moffat was quoted as saying “I don’t go on Tumblr. […] We have to stay away from it, particularly me. My friends just keep saying, ‘Don’t go on Tumblr. They’re all tremendously cross.” - of course we don’t want to leave him feeling that any Tumblr hates him, so #flowersformoffat was born: The idea to send him a large bouquet of congratulatory flowers on behalf of the Sherlockians of Tumblr. The project was a huge success, and it has become clear that there are an immense number of Tumblr users who are jumping at the chance to say ‘thank you’ to the producers, cast and crew of BBC Sherlock.
This is why thankyoubbcsherlock, a platform for our appreciation and positivity, was created. The idea is to include the url to the blog with the #flowersformoffat, which will be delivered in the next few days (as soon as we’ll know for sure where Steven Moffat is next week). There are also some plans to give a card to that effect to Martin at the stage door next week.
Here’s where you come in. We want them to look at the site and be blown away by how much love and support there is for them, especially on a site which they consider to be “cross with them”. We already have an outpouring of support but we are running out of submissions. Since the blog runs on your submissions, we need your help. Send us an ask or submission showing your love and appreciation for BBC Sherlock (writers, producers, cast, and crew) or simply tell us why BBC Sherlock and our fan community means so much to you.
What else can you do? Spread the word! By reblogging this, even if you don’t want to contribute at the moment, you can still help get the word out. In addition to that, we are looking for (older) tumblr posts (e.g. fanart or meta posts) that show the fandom’s appreciation for the show. Please send us links to those and we’ll gladly get in touch with the original posters for permission.
So The Harry Potter Alliance have started preparations for Esther Day. For those of you who don’t know Esther Earl, in part, inspired John Green to write The Fault in Our Stars (which if you haven’t read you so totally should) and I would really like it if some cumberangels were to take part as well.
So if you could please go here and have a read http://thehpalliance.org/esther-day/
Then let me know if any of you want to do something for it!

So I’m part of the cumberangels who in the past 7 months have raised £5000 for a few charities and we wanted to run a non money campaign that absolutely everyone could join in with. Show your face not show your face that’s fine. Don’t have any money that’s fine, all they needed was a camera and tumblr.
We wanted to do a positivity drive. Our dashboards have gone through the wars recently and it being post series 3 we wanted something to make people smile. So the campaign was born. #221BSTRONG which brought in something sherlocky and a message of strength hope and love.
Write #221BSTRONG somewhere on your body, snap us a picture, post it to your blog, tag it 221BSTRONG, we’ll reblog it AND it’ll be in our next video
YOU can take part to, just write #221BSTRONG, take a selfie with it, post it to tumblr, tag it 221BSTRONG and be in our next video!
We will try and raise money for those in need and for those who don't have anything at all!
We have wrapped up Operation Christmas Child with over £750 donated and over 50 boxes are going to be sent to Children in third world countries or those affected by war. We also are very proud to say we raised over £1000 for Shelterbox to help people in The Philippines after it was hit by the typhoon. We also raised £3,300 for the Prince's Trust as a Gift to Benedict when he attended the Elementary Convention in the UK.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
Thank you for your support, we hope you will find it in your heart to give generously in honor of the man who has given us so much!
