For Suicide Prevention Zack Snyder Fans Raise $200,000
Confirming a true mark of victory, Zack Snyder Fans raise $200,000 for American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
When people started campaigning for the SnyderCut, many outsiders questioned their morality. There has indeed been a small minority of fans who acted questionably. But the majority of the movement spent their time to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The main reason behind it was the heartbreaking death of Zack Snyder’s daughter. When HBO Max announced the release of Zack Snyder’s vision of the Justice League, the director himself took to Twitter to thank fans. He did not forget to mention their fundraising efforts after reaching an incredible milestone.
For Suicide Prevention – Zack Snyder Fans
Since the beginning of the movement, the Snyder Cut movement has raised $200,000 for AFSP. At the start, $800 raised in the #JusticePledge twitter campaign in 2018. But Snyder’s charity T-shirt has made a stunning $86,000. Small and other projects showed within fandom showed from time to time. They were donating in sums small and significant towards the same goal. Below you will see a graphic detailing just how the fandom managed to raise over $200K over the last two years.
Many people attacked SnyderCut Movement, calling them Snyder Cult. From their point of view, the movement was based on a lie and did nothing for the world. But in reality, the truth is different. Zack Snyder appreciated the achievement by dropping a unique graphic that combined the JL and AFSP logos. It genuinely shows how interconnected the two have become. The director commended the fandom with the message. “The bottom line…you guys have saved lives. This powerful movement is amazing #AFSP.”
Future of SnyderCut Movement
Zack Snyder fans have not stopped with the SnyderCut. They still raise funds and always fight for what they love. Now they have started campaigning for David Ayer’s version of Suicide Squad. The movement has been a symbol of changing the way fans interact with films. Despite being conflated with campaigns that had more negativity like Remake The Last Jedi or Bring Back Spider-Man, the Snyder Cut fandom did things in a more groundbreaking way. The fandom made sure that the fight for suicide prevention was just as, if not more important, than releasing the film itself. The movement has inspired other fan-driven campaigns to do the same. The #AlitaSequel campaign has donated Open Bionics, a company that develops affordable prosthetic limbs for amputees. #ReleaseTheAyerCut has donated to Dogs for Vets, a charity that helps veterans by pairing them a dog companion.
