Welcome to the Tabrett Bethell Appreciation project community.
Why we want to do this: I think most of you know by now what Tabrett said during The Clinic Q&A at MIFF. To quote her "I'm a first-comer myself. No one even know who I am". I was so surprised that she'd even think something like that. First i was like WTF?, then i wanted to hug her and tell her how many people DO KNOW who she is. But she's not an internet person so she can't possibly know how many crazy girls (and boys) drool over her on livejournal, twitter, tumblr etc. and talk about her and Cara every single day. :P First i wanted to send her a fan letter or something similar to that, but rhyfeddu had this great idea of doing TB Appreciation Project, all of her fans (or most) can be a part of. I participated in something similar on fanforum in Lauren Graham postcards project. It was the most amazing thing, she was so happy, the brainstorming and months of preparation were worth it. I don't know about you guys but it's driving me crazy that she thinks nobody knows who she is. And i know a lot of you feel the same.
What you need to do: All you have to do is join this community so i can see how many of you are willing to participate and if you have any ideas post them here below. Every time an idea is posted i'll update this post. You'll have 2 weeks to come up with something and then i'll post a poll so you'll all be able to vote for your favorite idea. Then i'll open a new thread with list of participants. Now, i know for some of you the winning idea won't be the best one, but remember the most important thing is to show Tabrett that we love her and that we appreciate her work. :) Every idea is a good idea, all Tabrett fans are welcome here. Lets do this for our Tabby. She is new at this and she needs to know her fans support her.
Here is link to the project we did for Lauren Graham on fanforum.com:
Also we will need her agents address, i believe that some of you have it. ;)
