Roswell Fans Raise Charity Money

Thanks to slgn for sending me this link


Fans of UPN’s endangered teen-alien series Roswell have organized a new renewal campaign this year, focused on raising money for charity in support of the ill child of one of the show’s writers. Instead of sending in letters or bottles of Tabasco sauce, as in earlier successful renewal campaigns, the Passion Through Compassion Roswell Renewal Campaign is encouraging fans instead to send money to the Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy organization. Zeke Lerner, the 20-month-old son of Roswell writer/producer Garrett Lerner, has the debilitating illness, fans said.

So far, the campaign has raised $4,500, organizers said. UPN has not issued official word on the fate of Roswell, which has already wrapped production of its current third season. It is expected the show will be canceled.
