It's a proud day over here at the Viva Chuck Todd offices.
After hundreds of emails asking if we were going to start a true Chuck Todd Fan Club, well, we heard you and built one. Not only is it a true home for all you Chuckolytes, but it offers some exceptionally cool real-world benefits.
Personalized Membership Card and Limited Edition Chuckolyte Pin
For just 2 bucks, you get a personalized membership card with your name and unique i.d. number as well as a limited edition collectors pin with the new Chuckolyte logo. One dollar of every membership goes to Tim Russert's favorite charities (Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Catholic Charities USA) and the other dollar goes to administration of the club (materials, hosting, etc.).
Members Rewards Program
The membership card just isn't handed out so you can impress dates; it's an actual unique card that comes with perks.
This is a program for Chuck Todd Fans who also happen to be business owners or service providers who would like to extend exclusive discounts and/or premiums to fellow Chuckolyte card holders. Any member who would like to participate gets their business/service listed on Chuckloyte.com and in future e-newsletters for free.
We want to build a community that's more than emails, forums and blogs. It is our hope to create a network that will allow members to be able to stroll into a restaurant, pub or shop and know that a fellow Chuck Todd fan has a special deal just for them.
More award-Winning Merchandise
We've just added a brand-new section to the Viva Chuck Todd Online Emporium that carries all new merchandise with the Chuckolyte logo. Our favorite is the Chuckolyte wall clock. Check it out and you'll see why. And just like everything else in the store, all proceeds go to Tim Russert's favorite charities.
Chuck Todd Fan Club Forum
Now there’s an actual place where you can post questions, get answers and correspond with other Chuck Todd fans. It’s brand-spanking new, so get over there and start posting.
In the next few weeks, all new members will be receiving a Chuckolyte e-newsletter with the latest news about The Chuck, fellow members, member rewards locations and the other stars in the Chuck Todd universe. We’re hoping to get a few guest contributors, starting with our man Willie Geist (Hear that Willie? Your adoring fans clamor for your puckish wit - call us)
So there you have it. A real fan club because you all asked for it. With that said, the site cannot be a success without your input, so by all means keep the feedback coming and flood our servers with email. This is your site now.
