An easier way? - Submitted by my-fellow-degenerates.tumblr.com
Okay! I don’t know if this makes sense because I’ve had no sleep and just found this and am really excited.
Assuming we figure out where to send everything - What if we nixed the actual chain mail part (I know this might sound kind of insane considering the name of this project, but bear with me) and just picked a specific date when everybody will send their stuff to her? We wouldn’t have to worry about the issues of privacy and cost for the person who then has to ship everything themselves, and while she wouldn’t get them all at once, they’d start to trickle in from different parts of the world and build up. Since she’s probably getting tons of stuff mailed to her already, maybe we could identify ourselves from here with something small like a logo on the packages … something, anything, just as long as it’s consistent with each one?
Again, no idea if this will be of any help of all, just throwing it out there! I love Gaga and I love sending mail, so I’d really like to do everything I can to help get this off the ground.
This is definitely a different way of looking at it and could definitely be a starting off point for another idea. Although I do think it is important that all the letters arrive at the same time. Because having a small logo or something it would mean that Gaga would have to sit around and literally look through all of her fan mail to make the connection. Something I doubt, she does. It’s an interesting idea though, and should be something to consider if all else fail. — Louise. x
Even if we get her managers e-mail address, that’s something! I’ll e-mail them right now! Yeah I do agree about the handwritten letters, they would be so much more beautiful and personal but there is a lot of issues surrounding the postage of them etc, hopefully we can sort something out though!
Oh really? That is very interesting! This might sound a little dumb but it kinda seems too easy. Like I’m sure the Germanotta’s have some way of diverting all this Gaga Fan Mail away from their home, they probably get a LOT of it. Although, this is a massive step forward, the fact we have at least one address, so thank you so much for that!
Well, I guess for now, because I’m still just starting the project up, I would be in charge of it. Although, I don’t like that phrasing, I wouldn’t like to think anyone is fully in charge of this, everyone needs to pull their weight to make this work. I just checked her website… and no look there :(
I’m not so sure. I’m guessing a lot of people try and contact her agent/person who deals with fan mails, which makes it very difficult for us. But I will definitely start looking into contact addresses, everything is worth a try!
It is a longshot but it could happen, definitely something to consider. An even bigger longshot is to get the ‘Little Monster Chain Mail’ trending. I know that would involve a lot of twitterers tweeting at once, but it’s also a way of getting peoples notice! The Perez Hilton idea is excellent though, are there any other celebrities/pals of Gaga that this idea might work with?
Yes, this could also be a way around it! Perhaps those who wish to post their letters can still post them, and those letters can be then added into the scrapbook. Or even just left in their envelopes and added to the scrapbook, I’m sure some people might like to keep the content for only Gaga to see. But the problem still remains, where do we send the scrapbook to? I really like the scrapbook idea though!
