The Sterek Campaign’s First Call to Love is a Go!


Our first call to love for the Season 3 hiatus is launching and we are once again hosting Cookies for Sterek in honor of this exchange!



We had a very successful Cookies campaign last year, with hundreds of you baking cookies and sharing the pictures!

Who can participate:

-Everyone that wants to show Jeff Davis some love.

What we are asking:

-Bake or purchase chocolate chip cookies for Jeff Davis.

-Take a photo of the cookies (you’re encouraged to be in the photo, or put something Sterek related in the photo.)

-Upload your picture to any (or all!) social media sites you use; Tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth, Livejournal… whatever! Tag it #CookiesForSterek or send us a link so we can add you to our gallery!

-On Sept 23rd, post a picture or a link to your picture on Twitter with the hashtag #CookiesForSterek for the trending event at 6PM EST. (Don’t use the hashtag until Sept 23rd, please.)

When should you post:

-Pictures should be posted at any time during September.

Where to post:

-Pictures and messages should be posted to Twitter, Tumblr, LJ, and whatever other social media site you have access to at any time.

-On September 23rd, post your picture or a link to your picture with the tag #CookiesForSterek. Our goal here is to get the topic trending on Twitter. This is an excellent way to show our support and love, and to attach that love to Jeff and to Sterek. You’re welcome to bake cookies for Jeff if you want to just show your support for the show in general.

Some answers for your questions:

1) You DO NOT have to bake the cookies yourself! Purchasing them works as well.

2) Cookies should be chocolate chip if possible, but if for some reason they can’t be (maybe you’re allergic to chocolate), other cookies are just fine! The idea is to spread the love and support behind the cookies.

3) You do not have to be IN the picture, but that is a nice touch, so Jeff can see his fans. Try to make it funny- give him a big thumbs up smile, or include your favorite Sterek picture, or a sign that says “STEREK!” or something. Have FUN with this!

4) We are not sending any actual cookies to Jeff this year! Just photos :)

CLICK HERE to check the gallery from last year’s event!

4) If you CANNOT take a picture, that is ok! On the trending date, add your voice to twitter anyway, saying that you have baked or bought #CookiesforSterek. Say you wished you could bake them. Say you support it. Say something that day at 6PM EST, lend your voice to the tag somewhere for us.

IMPORTANT: We want to reinforce the non-demanding nature of the Sterek Campaign project. This is, above anything else, an expression of our love and support. Yes, this campaign is about Sterek, but it is NOT about demanding Sterek so please do not ask, beg, or demand.

Our message is that because of everything the show has already done, whether Jeff Davis chooses Sterek or not, we will love and support him and his show. Because that’s what The Call To Love campaigns are about – love and support for the future.

So please, if you participate, keep this in mind. This is supposed to be fun, we want Jeff Davis to have a good time with his fanbase.

So let’s get out there, Pack, and start baking some cookies! Spread the love in the fandom, around home, to your friends, and eat some delicious cookies in honor of our creator, show, and ship!

We have seen some confusion about the cookies that were mailed to Jeff earlier today, so we want to take a moment to clear this misunderstanding up!

There were a grand total of 676 cookies sent to Jeff, packaged in 28 boxes of 24 cookies. The boxes look like the one pictured above. You can also clearly see pictured the thank you note included in each and every box.

Each of those boxes contained only ONE butter cookie printed with the SC logo (these are the “sterek” cookies people are freaking out about- they are not Sterek cookies, they are SC cookies). As the SC organized the entire project, the logo cookies are really not a plea or a demand. They are a tag, like signing a letter.

Each of those boxes contained 22 CHOCOLATE CHIP cookies.

Each of those boxes contained ONE butter cookie printed with the photo of the individual meant to receive the box (and by the way that face cookie above is for Russel Mulcahy, one of the directors).

So out of 676 cookies, only 28 of them had anything to do with Sterek at all, and it was not a demand for Sterek at all, it was the logo of the group that organized the project.

The cookies did not go only to Jeff, they went to the entire cast and crew, and extras were sent. All the cookies will be shared amongst everyone, as a gift for the start of filming.

We could not have done this project alone, either. Obviously we did not do this without asking (and obtaining) permission, and giving notification that this was going to happen. We’ve been working with someone from their end the entire time, and they are totally cool with this project. So while it may be some sort of surprise to some people (we are not sure how because this has been going on for literal months), it is not a surprise to the TW people. Jeff and company know what is going on, and they are excited about this.

If you see any of this information quoted wrongly, or see anyone attempting to make you feel bad about the wonderful, amazing show of support you guys have put forth to the entire cast and crew this week, don’t buy into it. If you are feeling bad about this, please, you don’t have to. This is absolutely a show of love and good feelings. We are a good fandom, and we have done well today.

Well, fandom, you done good.

Yesterday we met with Canton’s Back Home Bakery at the UPS shipping store to see the 680 cookies you folks ordered on their way. They handed us back our camera with the photos they had taken, and let us take a peek inside one of the bakery boxes to see how the cookies all turned out.

The cookies themselves were beautiful. Each of the printed face cookies was individually wrapped and placed in its matching box, the name of the corresponding cast member scripted in gorgeous handwriting on the top. The Sterek Campaign and “Thanks from the Sterek Fandom” stickers were placed on either side of the lip of the box. Inside, on the roof of each box, was secured a personalized thank you note, written by the SC admins.

The bakery arrived toting the 28 boxes full of 2 dozen cookies each, and one extra box with four sealed, printed face cookies of our fallen friends (and enemies). The bakery boxes were divided into two shipping boxes. The first was a large, 80lb box of pure cookies and a thank you card to Jeff. The second contained 4 boxes of unlabeled cookies, the #HowlsforSterek real postcard envelope, and a special, secret present from the SC to Jeff to help him enjoy the cookies. We’ll post a picture of that gift when we hear the packages have arrived safely!

So, all in all, it was a GREAT day for us! The cookies will be arriving early Tuesday and getting to Jeff most likely the same day. There will be enough for everyone to share, and enjoy. We made sure to send the cookies off with a great big hug full of all the love the Sterek fandom has to offer to Jeff and the cast and crew. Farewell, cookies, and safe journey!

In case anyone was wondering about how tasty these cookies are going to be… well. The post office workers had received a “test” box of cookies last week to prepare the shipping estimate for everything, which the bakery told them to ENJOY! When we arrived early and told them we were there for the cookies shipment, they went WILD exclaiming how delicious the cookies were and that who-ever was receiving this package was a lucky dog.

We told them, a lucky wolf.

Our first Call To Love is launching at the beginning of September and we are calling it COOKIES FOR STEREK in honor of this exchange:



Who can participate:
- Everyone that wants to show Jeff Davis some love.

What we are asking:
- Bake or purchase chocolate chip cookies for Jeff Davis.

- Take a photo of the cookies (you’re encouraged to be in the photo, or put something Sterek related in the photo).

- Post picture (on given date) with the tag #CookiesForSterek

When should you post:
- Pictures should be posted on September 17th with the tag #CookiesForSterek

Where to post:
- Pictures and messages should be posted to Twitter, Tumblr, DW, and whatever other social media site you have access to with the tag #CookiesForSterek (so we can track them)


Our goal is to get the topic trending on Twitter and to be able to link the tag to Jeff at the end of the day. This is an excellent way to show our support and love, and to attach that love to Jeff and to Sterek.

You’re welcome to bake cookies for Jeff if you want to just show your support for the show in general!


Some answers for your questions:

1) You DO NOT have to bake the cookies yourself! Purchasing them works as well.

2) Cookies should be chocolate chip (Davis’ favorites) if possible, but if for some reason they can’t be (maybe you’re allergic to chocolate), other cookies are just fine! The idea is to spread the love and support behind the cookies.

3) You do not have to be IN the picture, but that is a nice touch, so Jeff can see his fans. Try to make it funny- give him a big thumbs up smile, or include your favorite Sterek picture, or a sign that says ”WE LOVE/SUPPORT STEREK” or something. Have FUN with this!

Here is a picture one of us took as an example:



And an example of a message to accompany the picture: “Cookies for Sterek, it’s a good bargain.”

4) If you CANNOT take a picture, that is ok! Add your voice to tumblr or twitter anyway, saying that you have baked or bought #CookiesforSterek. Say you wished you could bake them. Say you support it. Say SOMEthing that day, lend your voice to the tag somewhere for us.

5) A good example of a tweet would be “Sending #CookiesforSterek to @Jeffdavis75 (link to pic)” or “I support #CookiesforSterek”

6) if you don’t want to (or for some reason can’t) post a picture yourself, you are welcome to email pictures to sterekcampaign@gmail.com and we will be compiling our own post of sent-in submissions and favorites on the 17th.

IMPORTANT: We want to reinforce the non-demanding nature of the Sterek Campaign project. This is, above anything else, an expression of our love and support. Yes, this campaign is about Sterek, but it is NOT about demanding Sterek so please do not ask, beg, or demand. We only want to show how much we care, we are not expecting anything in return. Period.

Our message is that because of everything the show has already done, whether Jeff Davis chooses Sterek or not, we will love and support him and his show. Because that’s what The Call To Love campaigns are about - love and support for the future.

So please, if you participate, keep this in mind. This is supposed to be fun, we want Jeff Davis to have a good time with his fanbase.

As a last note: We are working on a phase 2 of this campaign, in which people will be able to send actual cookies to Jeff via a website. Look forward to this!!



SPREAD THE WORD. REBLOG. RETWEET. PARTICIPATE. HAVE FUN.
