It was close till the end, but the winner of the hashtag poll is…#SomethingTrulyMagical! Yay! ūüėÄ Now it’s time to put it to work! Let’s get this campaign started!

Some¬†of you¬†have been asking how to contact these companies. Here’s the info you need! I’ll keep it in an easy-to-find location (the header menu) so you can look at it whenever you need to.

NICKELODEON

We need to show¬†Nick how big and passionate the Winx fanbase really is. Our hope is¬†if we prove the show has a lot of love, they’ll wanna support it like they used to¬†‚ÄĒ more advertising, more merchandise, and a consistent airing schedule (on TV). And if¬†they’ve decided not to air season seven in the U.S., let’s change their minds!

Email:

Nick’s publicists¬†for¬†Winx Club¬†are¬†Katelyn Balach¬†(New York office) and¬†Elizabeth Cain¬†(California office):

Remember: keep your message short and be polite. They’re not our enemies, and we’re not making demands.¬†We’re just telling¬†them how much we love this show.

You can’t use the hashtag in your email, but you could slip in the words “something truly magical.”¬†They could be your subject line (your email might get deleted, though¬†ūüėõ¬†). It’s up to you how you do it.¬†(But don’t link to the campaign. That’d be a bit tacky. ūüėõ )

Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.):

If you don’t wanna make something, you could just share your thoughts on¬†Nick’s Facebook or Twitter.¬†Just put¬†#SomethingTrulyMagical at the end ‚ÄĒ or work it into the message if you want. Again, it’s your choice!

Note: this is also a quick way to send them your fan art, fan fic, photo, video, etc. All you have to do is share the link!

Snail Mail:

Got something physical you wanna send? A letter? Jewelry? Cookies shaped like fairy wings? ūüėõ Mail it to their New York address:

Nickelodeon
Attn: Katelyn Balach
1515 Broadway, 44th Floor
New York, NY 10036

JAKKS Pacific Believix Dolls

JAKKS PACIFIC

The “Bloomix Power” line¬†has¬†just been released, and the Mythix line is coming soon. If you love the JAKKS dolls (I sure do), now’s¬†the time to show your¬†support for them! That means:

  1. Buying them, of course!
  2. Telling other fans about them
  3. Asking JAKKS to keep making Winx dolls!

Here’s an idea (if you wanna do it): JAKKS made¬†a YouTube playlist of fan videos that feature the dolls. Make a video of¬†your dolls and ask them to add it to their playlist!

Email:

The best way to reach them is through their customer service email: [email protected]. They’re pretty good about responding. Again, keep your message short and be polite.

Also, follow the instructions on their customer service page:

Please be sure to include your name, address, phone number and email address so we may contact you. If you are under 13 years of age, please have your parent contact us and provide this information.

*UPDATE 2* We could also try Anne-Marie Feliciano, the head of JAKKS’s Corporate Communications department. She’s in charge of spreading the word about their toys. Her address is [email protected].

Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.):

JAKKS updates their¬†social media accounts often, so these are good places¬†to reach them, too. They don’t tend to respond to Winx fans, but if a lot¬†of us post, we’ll get their attention!

Snail Mail:

JAKKS’s mailing address is:

JAKKS Pacific, Inc.
Consumer Relations
21749 Baker Parkway
Walnut, CA 91789

Follow the same instructions as for email: include your contact info so they can respond to you. (Have a parent or guardian¬†send them your info if you’re under 13. It keeps JAKKS out of legal trouble. ūüôā )

RAINBOW

Everything we’re doing is to help them. The more we support their show, the better they’ll be able to negotiate with Nick and JAKKS (or other companies if things don’t work out). Let’s tell them how much Winx Club¬†means to us!

Easier¬†said than done, though. We could post on¬†the Winx Facebook, but the staff never responds‚ÄĒ and there’s too much spam on there. Rainbow’s Facebook is dead, and they don’t have a Twitter.

Email’s our best option.¬†The¬†WinxClub.com¬†contact address is [email protected].

*UPDATE* A few more email addresses to try! These are from Rainbow’s contact page:

*UPDATE 3* This might be a long shot, but how about sending a message through the contact form on Iginio Straffi’s website? It’s worth a try!

THE OTHER HALF OF THE CAMPAIGN

If we¬†wanna convince Nick and JAKKS to support Winx Club,¬†we have to support it, too. Watch the episodes on TV and Nick.com. Buy them¬†on iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play.¬†Download¬†the apps. Buy the dolls, games,¬†and DVDs. Let’s do everything¬†we can to get the ratings and sales up and draw attention to the show!

Ready, Winx fans?¬†Let’s do this!
