Grounders Source is creating Media Site For The 100
1

patron

Grounders Souce is the most popular source for The 100, a post-apocalyptic drama that airs on the CW network. Thousands of visitors visit the website on an hourly basis, as they seek the latest information, photos, and other content about the show. In addition to that, Grounders Source has recently launched its official nonprofit, The Hope And Battle Scars Campaign that benefits people with disabilities around the globe.   In honor of Eliza Taylor, Grounders Source also launched its second official nonprofit, The Brave Princess Project which will aide Ms. Taylor's nonprofit school, Koh Tao Primary in Thailand.  Information about the project can be found on grounderssource.com, and direct donations can be made on the Gofundme page at  Our Gift To Eliza



Unlike other news and entertainment sites, Grounders Source is run by one hard-working and very efficient independent journalist and writer with experience in the media field, instead of a beehive of writers. That is one of the many-faceted reasons of what makes Grounders Source so unique, personal, and solid.  

While all of this wonderful and awesome, it does have its costs. Which is a necessary implement to run the site and provide all of the extras that people want to enjoy.

Paying out of pocket to run the site does not always meet the criteria and attention that it needs and deserves. This is solely crucial as the website gets more popular and people could hack into it, which is something that we all do not want.

It will also put a damper on all of the hard work that is passioned through it.

Here is what will be covered and what The 100 fandom will get when you make a pledge. Any amount that you give will be appreciated.

Website Upkeep
: This will cover the costs of running the site, such as the hosting platform, the anti-theft and anti-hacking software, the layouts, SEO, and everything else that will keep Grounders Source smooth and fluid.

Photography: This is another very important aspect as people want to see photos of the cast from events, cons, and the series. Grounders Source wants to have the very best of the very best because that is what is to be expected and people want a reliable, credible platform. What that means is that HQ photos from agencies such as Getty and the CW. It can cost up to hundreds of dollars for just a few of them, but Grounders Source gives the of the best.

Additionally, Evelyn is an accomplished photographer herself, and whilst at conventions and events, will take high-quality photos of what is unfolding. See the photo of Bob Morley and Eliza Taylor from ConAgeddon 2018. 🔽



Contests: Grounders Sources hosts contests and giveaways 2-3 times a year for thanking the supporters and love. In addition, I think we are the only site in the world that can provide this. This is the lower end of the pledges as this will cover prizes. Prizes can include The 100 books, shirts, original artwork, autos from the cast, and etc. I do not want to get into elaborate detail about this as I want people to be surprised at it.

Travel and media coverage: This is a big one but well worth it. Traveling to conventions, (IE SDCC) to cover the latest news, getting press, and professional photography is a must. Funds will cover airfare, hotel accommodations, equipment insurance, convention admission, (if cannot get a press pass) and more. This will be a higher pledge, but definitely a great thing.

That is basically it as far as coverage.  

Here is the outline of all of the cool things that will happen in honor of your love and support.  After all, Grounders Source would not have been the success it is today without the help of the fans and creators.


Special Goal Marks:

All are contributions and in USD.


$100: This will cover the upkeep of the site and contests, and you'll also get your name as a sponsor on the site.  

$500:  HQ photography coverage from agencies and site sponsorship.

$1000:  Travel costs, (airfare, hotel accommodations) including organizing meetups at conventions, a chance for me to ask your questions at panels, and all of the other things that incorporates the media spectrum.  This will also include meeting me at the cons, which is always a fun thing.  Also, site sponsorship. 🙂

There will be smaller pledges as well. See the Rewards section on the right side of this page.

However, just $1 USD a month will keep things running smoothly.

In return, readers and supporters can depend on a faster, cleaner, hopefully, ad-free site, and feel confident knowing that the fandom and visitors are getting the best-resourced news and material.

Thank you for all of your support!
