To teachers, pupils and other readers we hope to demonstrate what can be achieved with passion, communication, courtesy and teamwork BUT to Doctor Who fans, wherever you are in the world, we want to inspire you to embrace our cause and JOIN US. We mentioned this at the very end of our very first post. We have mentioned this in each and every interview we have given. We are quietly whispering it, and some of you have already responded to our call. The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed a post that appeared on our Facebook page from Donald Bain on the 16th of May. It reads:
In our other mailbox we received a message from Lucy Hatherell and her 11 year old daughter Isabel. They told us “Just read your blog and think this is BRILLIANT! My daughter and me are both massive Whovians so it was a no brainer to donate some books to her school! So please add Waddington and West Bradford Primary School to your map who will soon be receiving a lovely parcel containing: Doctor Who and the Loch Ness Monster, Doctor Who and the Tenth Planet, Doctor Who and the Day of the Daleks"
When they do, they become part of Target Who too! And so we grow.
We also heard from “Koth” on a comment on our blog. “What a great plan! I have some books I was going to get rid of. I can donate them to your cause. They are the 90's reprints and never been read, in my library doing nothing but being a variant cover.”
We’ll find a nice school library or three for his books and he’ll become part of Target Who too!
Finally we heard off another fan whose efforts have impressed us so much, we are going to hand the blog over to him temporarily to tell you himself what he’s done. His name is Roger Smith, and some of you may know him in Doctor Who circles as Black Dalek. Over to You Roger:
I have been a Doctor Who fan for 50 years.
Doctor Who taught me so much: compassion; standing up for what is right; helping when you can. It is the small things that make BIG differences.
