Andrew fans! [29 Jan 2007|01:32pm]

Hey everyone!

I run an Andrew-inspired website called rockstrong.net and I'm re-launching it this week with a new fan section. The fan section will showcase fan-taken live concert photos and photos of fans with Andrew and/or members of Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate.

If you want to be featured on the site, you can send your photos as attachments to rockstrongnet@gmail.com OR post them as a comment on this post (I'll screen comments).

Please include the following information with your photo(s):

First Name (and Last Name if you wish)
Location and Date of Concert
Your email address (will NOT be posted on the site)

I am also looking for photos of Andrew, Jacks, and SoCo-inspired artwork done by fans and photos of JM/Andrew/SoCo-decorated bedrooms, dorm rooms, and apartments. You can also submit those photos via this entry or emailed as attachments to rockstrongnet@gmail.com with your name and location.

RockStrong.net Project! [29 Sep 2006|10:54pm]

Hey guys!

Over at ROCKSTRONG.NET we're doing a project inspired by Jack's Mannequin and the Dear Jack Foundation. All of the info is at this page ... basically you make a homemade postcard that is cheery, upbeat, or inspirational (it can be JM-related if you so choose) and you mail it to me. Then I divide the whole bunch up among the regional representatives, and we deliver these cheery happy postcards to kids and adolescents in the hospital dealing with cancer. It will brighten their day just like Jack's Mannequin brightens all of ours.

You can also include an optional Dear Jack Foundation donation with your postcard submission, and for every dollar you donate you'll be entered once in a raffle to win exclusive rockstrong.net merchandise and a small feature on the site.

All in all, it's a good cause that won't take up much of your time or money. I hope a lot of people participate and make the project a success! Again, all of the info is at this page.

And look around the site! We are selling green ROCKSTRONG bracelets and PROJECT BOARDWALK books -- of course, all of the proceeds go to the PCRF/Dear Jack.

Wow. Long time, no update in here.

Well, I am just posting to let everyone know about a couple of things.

(1) I have recently launched a website, ROCKSTRONG.NET. The site is not polished yet, but the basic info is up. At the site, you can buy one of the ROCKSTRONG bracelets that Alex made last summer - they are for sale again, and of course the proceeds will go to a cancer-related charity/foundation, such as the PCRF or Dear Jack. You can also learn about Project Boardwalk and purchase your copy of the book. Again, of course, all proceeds from the sale of the Project Boardwalk book will go to the PCRF.

(2) I am also going to be organizing some projects through the site that will benefit children living with and battling cancer. These are easy and fun projects that I hope a lot of you will want to become involved with. Much more info on that later, but if you already know you are interested in helping out, you can apply to be a RockStrong Regional Representative here.

Thanks everyone! I hope you're all doing well, and I know we're all ecstatic that Andrew is doing well.

hey everyone,

I'm kinda new to this community but I just want to say I think its great that the creators of this incorporated "rockstrong" in the name. I have had cancer since I was 16 and when I found out my favorite singer, Andrew McMahon had cancer I felt less alone and automatically began burning cds with his songs on it to get me through chemo. Its amazing how much he's helped me through and I haven't even met him! Imagine the power of one man!

anyway that's my andrew story.

Hey everyone. I just wanted to write a quick update on the rockstrong bracelets.

I know that there are some of you who sent in money a while ago for the bracelets and have not received them yet. I apologize that they are taking so long, but there is a good reason for it. The site where I was ordering the bracelets from was a pretty good site and the prices were reasonable...about 3 dollars to make a bracelet. I have been charging 5 dollars for each bracelet- 3 to cover the bracelet price and 2 is donated to the PCRF. I pay for all the shipping. Well, a friend of mine who makes the 11:11 AM bracelets told me that he could help lower the prices for the bracelets. I put off on ordering them for this reason. Then there was miscommunication between us (basically because I am a loser) but everything has been situated. The bracelets are still 5 dollars but now about 4 of that will be donated to the PCRF. The bracelets should be getting here any day. For all of you who have waited patiently...thank you so much for not freaking out. Again I apologize that it has taken this long.

For anyone who has not ordered a bracelet but wants to, I ordered quite a few of them so there are many chances to get one still! My camera is finally working again and I am going to post a picture here of the bracelets very soon.

You guys are all awesome! Thanks and ROCKSTRONG!

Show your love and support. [16 Sep 2005|02:54pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

I came upon this site while looking around on PureVolume under a band, and I thought it's a great idea to show your love and support to Andrew McMahon.

I Will Fight

I know I'm getting one. Hope some, or even all of you get one as well.

After the recent effects of Hurricane Katrina, I have decided to put Flowers for Andrew on hold to raise donations for what I'll call Flowers for Katrina. Everything will be the same as far as flowers, colors and price goes, but instead I'll be donating to a Katrina-related organization. If interested, please contact me at karma.host@gmail.com. Thanks for your support!

Handmade flower barrettes and brooches created for a cause!

($2.00 each & half of the proceeds will go to the University of New Orleans Recovery Fund)

Also available in pink, orange, purple and yellow.

I hate asking for this, but I scrolled back awhile... (probably not far enough)

Anyway, a while ago someone posted some wallpapers (I'm not even sure which community it was in), and I took one that I loved. Well my computer crashed and I got a new hard drive. Long story short, I lost the picture and I wondered if anyone could help me find it.

Its a big pic of Andrew and its blue. Off to the right side there are a bunch of smaller pictures of him and I believe the line from She Paints Me Blue: "I cant hide that I've relied on you like yellow does on blue"

Thanks in advanced.

[17 Aug 2005|12:25pm]

Hey guys! It's been a while since I have posted here, but I wanted to send some update information on the ROCKSTRONG bracelets.

Every bracelet is $5 and $2 from every bracelet is donated to the pediatric cancer research foundation. I went to warped tour this past Monday, and even though the Jack's booth was not set up I hunted Casper down. (He was hanging out in the Mae booth for anyone who missed him.) I gave him the donations that I have raised so far. We talked for a little while; I gave him two ROCKSTRONG bracelets and he put one on while we were talking and then he said, "Do you want me to give the other one to Andrew? I will see him in a few days." So I sent Casper an e-mail with a note for him to give to Andrew when he sees him and gives him the bracelet, I will keep you all updated on that!

But I also want to let anyone know who still may want a ROCKSTRONG bracelet, I am getting another order of them soon. My mom had problems with her credit card so they are going to take longer then expected but they will most likely be here by the end of August, and if not they will be here the first couple days in September. I think that I am getting some help with ordering them and that more money from every bracelet will be donated to the PCRF- around 3 or 4 dollars. They are green bands with the word ROCKSTRONG on them- they are all size medium. If anyone wants to go about ordering a bracelet I am accepting payments through snail mail. I do not want to post my address on the community, but if you would like to order one or just get more information you can either e-mail me at rockstrong_am@yahoo.com or you can send me an IM at amp036.

Thanks guys and ROCKSTRONG!

Flowers for Andrew @ Warped Tour [15 Aug 2005|07:58am]
Hey guys.

Just checking in to let you know how things went at yesterday's Warped Tour. Before the gates opened, I handed out info cards in the lot. A lot of people seemed interested so hopefully they held onto their card and will come and join us in our fight alongside Andrew. Inside the show, I found the Jack's Mannequin tent and left some cards there, as well. I got a really good one-to-one response so hopefully that will turn over to the web side of things.

Catch ya later!

Hey everyone.

I am kind of sad that this community has died a little bit...let's bring it back to life, ok? :)

For those of you who purchased ROCKSTRONG bracelets, i thank you, and I hope that you like them ok!
For those of you who did not purchase a bracelet, I am all out of them for right now, but I am going to make another order if there is enough interest.
If you are interested, just leave a comment right here.
As long as there are enough people that want them, I will order them.

Thanks everyone.

About the pins? [05 Aug 2005|05:48pm]

I'm just curious, but has anyone who ordered any pins recieved theirs yet? I've ordered mine pretty much the day she took orders and have yet to recieve it, so I was jsut curious as to if the project had crashed, or if she's still making/sending them...

Thanks. Sorry if this is a waste of everyones time.
